    It's been really sunny and hot for past few weeks now but as I live at the seaside then there's always this cool breeze which makes the heat more bearable

    Nashville, TN 06/16/07 high temp was 93.

    Right now TN is experiencing its worst drought since records have been kept (about 120 yrs). Some areas are reporting a rain deficit of nearly 15" & it's not even summer officially!

    Moreover, the driest months around here usually tend to be July and August.

    Do you have to do water conservation there, ktn4eg? How are you managing the situation?

    Thank you, Rojo!
    I asked my good friend to do this photo manipulation for me.

    And the weather's 16 C, very cloudy and rainy here in Tallinn, Estonia.

    Weather report from a week residence at a Maine camp on Sysladobsis Lake:

    Early morning: 50-60F, all is quiet; the lake is perfectly still, not a single ripple; a light morning fog skims the water and dissipates around 7:30 am; best time for canoeing; dropping a line in the water; saw an otter, one morning who, upon realizing I was watching him/her went "Mumpfff."

    Noon: 70F, all is quiet; making use of a slight breeze and temperate weather to cut some fire wood, walk the dog, read.

    2-4 pm: all is quiet; warmest time of the day, 75-80F, lake breeze persisting; good time for music and sunbathing; got to kill the deer flies, as they land for a bite of my skin, they can swell you up pretty bad.

    6-8 pm: all is quiet, 70-75F; breeze ceases with sun set; lake is completely still once more; dragonflies busily engulf an abundant dinner of moskitoes and little flies; fish are also eating around 6:30. Good time to release the dog or to keep him on his runner and paddle up the sun ray that's paved on the lake.

    10 pm: all is quiet; 60-65F; camp fire; bed time.

    (repeat this scenario on a daily basis)

    Nice, ON ... sounds as if you had a really enjoyable time being a recluse for that week of camping and generally enjoying nature at its finest.

    Is this something that you have done before in prior years?

    Rojo --

    We have various water conservation (i.e., restricted water usage) programs in Tennessee, but for the most part these are under the auspicies of local governments and/or neighborhood associations, etc.

    Right now there are various scattered communities throughout the area of middle TN that I know of that have imposed restrictions on water usage. So far, Nashville hasn't imposed any....I guess because the city is located right along the Cumberland River (even though the river itself is a lot lower than normal not only because of the drought, but also TVA and/or the Army Corps of Engineers has lowered at least one of the dams near the river's source in KY due to damage to that dam).

    Actually the drought is worse the farther south and east you go from Nashville (towards, say, the city of Chattanooga).

    Today's temperature in Nashville was predicted to hit 94 degrees F, thus making it the hottest day so far this year according to the official NWS records. Annual rainfall deficit for Nashville is now probably over 10 inches, and it's probably at least 15+ inches for areas in and around Chattanooga.

    The state Department of Agriculture has requested that people do not make any outdoor fires or engage in any activities that could cause a fire to break out, but that is not a mandatory thing yet. Of course local governments or other local entities most likely have imposed such "no burning" regulations in areas under their juristiction. (You're not, for example, supposed to have any outdoor fires within Metro Nashville-Davidson County in the first place they tell me.)

    The next rain for the Nashville area may occur on Tuesday, June 19, but only time will tell how true that may be.

    Same place last summer, but in August. At that particular camp one needs to choose between relatively more humans (boating, waterskiing, fishing, etc.) when the bugs are gone or less humans but more bugs. The month of June in the Northeast is not so popular among wealthy out of staters because of the little critters. Several of them own "camps" (homes, really!) around the lake but the black flies, mosquitoes, and deer flies keep them away . The bugs weren't that bad, however, mostly coming in waves ("bug waves" ) at certain times during the day. After a few days, I got used to them. Some urban folks, I am told, first acquired their lake shore lot for something like $150,000, then built homes with a two-door garage, a boat landing, septic tank, and a huge propane tank outside, homes worth two or three hundred thousand dollars a piece. Nevertheless, these summer "camps" are only used a few weeks every summer .

    By the way, this was the first time I completely released the wolf dog, a couple of times every day. He is not mean but the hunting territory he feels entitled to implies that I cannot release him where we are domiciled. You should have seen him run and jump

    Well, some parts of Nashville TN got a little rain this morning (06/18/07). Not enough to amount to anything, though.

    Once again, the weatherman was off since no rain at all was predicted until tomorrow!

    Q: Would I buy a used car from a Tennessee weatherman?

    A [sort of]: What do you think?

    Ha.

    I wonder how often the weather predictions are right vs how often they are wrong...

    Middle Tennessee did get a little more rain yesterday (06/19/07).....some areas got more than others, but we'll take any that we can get. None of it was very much, though.

    Several areas w/in Middle TN still have locally-mandated water usage restrictions. Latest one of which I'm aware is in Macon County. There officials have banned car washing, lawn sprinkling, and no private swimming pool filling. First offense = warning; 2d offense = $75 fine.

    Reminder: Summer officially starts tomorrow (06/21/07)

    Have a great day!
