My weather forecast for the next three days looks like this:
In that time I've got to dehydrate sage and peppers, mow the yard, and clean the goat pens (and rabbit cages and chicken coop.) It looks like I'll be dodging thunderstorms and hoping the ground doesn't get too muddy! I went ahead and hung the sage and peppers to dry this morning and will stick them in the dehydrator to finish up in a couple days. It's funny how the dry air needed for dehydrating comes around here long after the bounty has been stored.
Normally in these conditions my chickens would be out free ranging in all the shady spots but we've lost two this week and I strongly suspect the tall corn around us has been the perfect hideout for a fox. So the birds are being kept locked up in the run. They aren't appreciating the smaller space but if they knew the alternative I'm sure they wouldn't complain so much.
Notice the threat for a thunderstorm? We call them pop-up storms here because they usually pop up with little warning. You can be outside in the sun going about your business and very quickly be covered by dark clouds and hear thunder approaching. On our little acre I'm glad to be within mad dash distance to the back door although I have stood in the chicken coop a few times waiting for the rain to slow down so I don't get drenched.
One thing that weather chart doesn't show is the "real feel" of the temperature. As I type this, the current actual temperature is 86* but the heat index is 105*. That's nineteen muggy degrees difference! If a person didn't check the "real feel" temperature before he wandered outside, he could find himself in a heap of heat sick trouble.
That's a few examples of how the weather affects us. What's the weather like where you are?
