Rain, and more rain. National Weather Service says in the last 45 days we have had measurable precipitation on 31 of them. That's at the Portland OR airport...here in the Cascade foothills where I live it is several more days than that, I'm sure.
I almost sweat perceptibly today. I was down to a think synthetic Arborwear shirt, Arborwear tech II pants, gloves, buff and helmet. Buff, muffs and a visor add a perceptible amount of heat. I'm ready to put my mesh screen on. It cuts the sun a bit.
I like buffs...covers the neck pretty well, and kept the moss at bay. I can hold my breath while cutting (sometimes stopping cutting for a couple breaths, then recommence breath-holding and cutting) so sawdust isn't so bad, unless the wind is going the wrong way. Very mossy maples today, in places inches thick.
It was relatively cool again, so I made grass shorter today. Only got to about 80°. I keep thinking *this* will be the last cool(ish) day, but then another one comes up. Not complaining. Spider season's started. I guess I can complain about that. Seems like it might be a bit early this year, but I never tracked it closely.
Not sure it got to 80° today. Just got past a hot spell, and it's calling for 89° Thursday, but temps will drop again. No 90s in the forecast. It's been unusually cool this year. Hope it means a real winter is coming, but I doubt it.
