Forecast:

A line of powerful thunderstorm is already nosing into the region this morning in a line from Burlington north towards Morrisville. Showers and thunderstorms will rumble eastward across Vermont during the mid to late morning hours. A few of these storms may produce heavy downpours and strong, gusty winds. This convective activity is expected to exit east early this afternoon as a cold front sweeps across the region bringing partial clearing and drier conditions
later in the day. Slightly cooler temperatures and lower humidity levels are expected on Sunday. A broad mid-level trough over eastern Canada will make for unsettled conditions through much of the upcoming work week.

We’ll see a chance of thunderstorms and showers this morning, then showers are likely this afternoon. Some thunderstorms may produce gusty winds, and heavy rainfall. Highs will be in the mid 70s with light and variable winds, becoming westerly around 10 mph this afternoon. Chance of rain is 80%. Tonight should be partly cloudy with a 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms until midnight, then clear after midnight.

About Today’s Photo:

Clintonia (a.k.a. Blue Bead Berry, Bead Lilies, Clinton’s Lily, Corn Lily, Snakeberry, Dogberry, and Cow Tongue) is native to the US northeast and Canada. This lovely yellow flower sets a large blue-to-black fruit later in summer. Don’t be tempted to eat the berries, however, as they’ll make you sick!

About Today’s Photo:

Taking an afternoon tour of our property with camera in hand, I was surprised to find more than a dozen bald-faced hornets working the remaining bug bane blossoms in our ornamental garden. The hornets (wasps technically and not true hornets) were pretty logy—almost drunken it seemed—and didn’t mind me getting in close with my macro lens.

About Today’s Photo:

Japanese Knotweed is an fast growing invasive species that has taken over many places in Vermont. The Little River that flows along side the Stowe Rec Path is a prime example of a stream that has been largly taken over by the plant. Still, I found this leaf to be quite pretty and a bit abstract as it fades to yellow.

About Today’s Photo:

We stopped by Shelburne Beach the other afternoon. The Lake Champlain water level is quite low right now at 93.86′  (the record low was 92.61′ above mean sea level on December 4, 1908.) There were numerous sandbars exposed going out past the usual pebble and stone shoreline. The sunlight dappled nicely as small wavelets lapped across the sand. The stone in this shot is Iberville shale, a distinctive dark gray and white shale streaked with calcite.
