Cottage Report - May 20, 2020
We could go up on Tuesday after the long weekend. Here is a picture with no oak buds out yet. The blackflies are horrible! I can't even sit on the porch in my net-jacket. You just can't see with the bugs in front of you. Gives you a headache, and they are all trying to worm into tiny gaps.
I'm giving this a rating of 10, which means worst in 10 years. It's just like the 70's with the cold weather, and needing a fire at night. That's also 10 years.
The consequence of an ice age is a very short hot season. We should have at least one killer heat wave for the warmies to love.
This is back to 'average' weather for the cottage. Those who bought cottages based on the last 10 years, are due for a lump in the tummy. Sad.
Almost time to start the fire.
ps. today, we are calling 'Total Blackfly Nightmare'. It's so hot that you can't work in nets.
Saturday -- the first dragonfly just zoomed by my head, picking off blackflies.
