New England Weather


forecasters say we are in for a mini heat wave.

Temps will be in the 90’s for 3 days.

After the rains in the southeast and the fires in the west  I

hardly think we can complain about sunny warm summer days.


We have had our share of floods,hurricanes,ice storms,blizzards

but not this week.  This week coming will be normal for this time of year.


My heart goes out to all of those in New Mexico,Colorado,and Utah

who lost every thing to raging wildfires, some which are still burning.

Other states are in the 110-115 range that is just crazy to imagine, day after day

the desert is one thing but other areas it is just plain nuts!


Stay safe out there as we go into the first week of July.
