Wet Summer, Great Fall
We had a great deal of rain in June and July. My rain gauge by my garden showed 6.4 inches (162 mm) of rain from June 1st to June 8. It rained so much some of my potato plants were under water! I had to dig some trenches for the water to flow away. The first week of August hot, the last week of August cool with night-time temperatures below 5 C. September and October were moderately cool and quite dry (typically we get rain with resulting layers of ice). Our first real snowfall was last week, amazing for our location.
This is of the oldest trees on our property.
I had to stitch a couple of photos together to capture its full height.
