We have had rain for all or most of the last several days, including a torrential downpour late Monday afternoon. Today the sun poked out briefly before rain resumed.

It's a good thing I keep two clean plastic trash bags in my car. Today was laundromat day, so when I took my clothes out of the dryer I put my laundry bag in one plastic bag, fill it with my clean, dry clothes, then slide the other bag down over everything to cover the opening in the inner bags. I wish it wouldn't rain on laundromat days, though.

Yup, Gnu, since my last post we've had about a foot of rain, solving the fire problem, and temperatures that seesaw from 55F to 90F. Currently, we're in harmony with the mother country, with New English weather of 55F and rain on and off for the past 5 days. The season is nevertheless advanced, with strawberry picking starting Saturday, about a week early. Roses are in full bloom or going by, something that usually happens for Fathers' Day (June 17). Hay crops must be ready to cut, but the farmers don't have a clear shot at 3 days of fair weather for about another week (by then it'll be 90 again, I suppose).

The freeze I worried so about apparently wasn't so bad as feared. The local orchard is celebrating it's 165th anniversary this month (in the same family) so I guess they knew where the trees should go. I do have a decent fruitset on the cherry tree, but the apple has gone biennial with only a few this year after a heavy crop last year (that got snowed on last Halloween).

Oh dear! Bettynh... that sounds absolutely dreadful! Seems to be the norm on the northeastern seaboard of America this year. Frightening, really. Everything seems a month early but that cold weather sneaks back in for a bit and messes things up. Good luck.

If you are really worried, you could place a lawn sprinkler near/under the tree. Of course, how many nights might you need to do that?... especially if you pay for water usage.

Here in southern NH we had the 80F degree weather with heavy winds and no rain for 3 weeks (and no snow melt of course), with brush fires all over. After a good rain it's now seasonal, but that means 20F tonight, and my apple tree is blooming. A heavy freeze will kill this year's apple crop, peach crop, and perhaps cherry crop. Even if everything else this season goes well, farmers around here will be in trouble. My cherry tree bloomed during the heat and drought and the petals just turned brown and hung on, never falling as they usually do. Does that mean the cherries didn't fertilize?? The tree is too big for me to harvest any but the lowest fruit, but it'll mean tough times for the catbirds this year. Lilacs are mid-bloom. I have no idea what a hard freeze will do to them.

Way too warm all winter. Did we have winter?

Tomorrow, highs in the mid 80's F, has been ranging from the mid 70's to the low 80's for the better part of the last 2 weeks. Night temps in the mid 50's. Bloom times for trees and shrubs anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks early.

Messing with our many local farmers who count on spring farmers markets. Stuff like asparagus is 3 weeks early and will be finished before some local farmers markets open for the season.

We have not had, all winter long, a succesion of hard frosts and cold weather sufficient to either kill off or render completely dormant some common insect pests.

Also, while we are not in a drought phase, it certainly has not been a wet winter or early spring, and ground water reserves are not being adequately recharged so far to sufficiently replenish ground water reserves.

Old Man Winter must be off on a bender. The snowbanks are gone. My thermometer is reading 26C in the shade and it's only 2PM. I had to close my windows a little while ago. I expect there will be flooding in some river valleys.

maeve... are your fruit trees budding?

I noticed in Sobeys this AM that only two bottles of Maple Slurpup were on the shelves. Usually, there would be close to 100 (various sizes). I wonder if Quebec maples will be affected. La Belle Province produces 4 times the amount that all other jurisdictions combined produce. That would hit a lot of Quebec(ers) hard.

Here in RI, we had a record high of 73 yesterday. The Newport mansion tours are starting two weeks earlier than usual. My son's family planted some seeds--not a lot, just in case--during the weekend, ignoring the "wait 'til the last full moon in May" wisdom. I'm waiting to see if the farmstand near their house opens early. Every year the sign says, "Reopens in April." Then at the beginning of April they post the opening date, usually a weekend in the middle of the month. I hope this year they open at the beginning of April or sooner.

Sorry. Not one hundred, not even ten. But, about one dollar (Loonie) a day to operate the unit.

My heating bill went from about 1600 down to about three or four hundred last year, which was a colder year than this year. This year my furnace rarely kicks in, even in today's cold temperature. Under $two hundred for extra electricity, and about $ one hundred and fifty dollars for oil. I expect it to be slightly cheaper this winter, as it was a warmer winter.

Heat rises, so, I also benefit on the upper house level, which also benefits from daytime solar heat.

Air conditioning benefits in the summer is limited to the lower level, as cold stays low, and does not rise much.

If I ever need to replace my forced air oil furnace, I would buy a full heat pump furnace replacement. I could then use my air ducts to put it all around the house. These are about 5 K at Home Depot, and they claim you can get a 1k subsidy back - though I have not looked into that.


It is only the power to run the compressor and indoor fan. No wires are heated. The inverter technology makes them much more efficient over the past two or three years, than earlier models .

"It cost me about $100. a day to operate in the winter"... assuming you meant $10 a day... that's $300 a month. How much has your heating cost dropped? My electric furnace runs about $300 per month from October to March. Today might be a "little costlier".

I bought it for 1300. plus a hundred for the outside wall bracket, the cover for the lines will cost about a hundred (a rip off, but it looks much better-though cheaper stuff may be available than what I got).

I got it installed by an electrician (needed for the warranty) for about four hundred- Cuts a hole in the house, attaches it to the wall inside, puts a bracket for the compressor outside and electric box, snaps the compressed lines to the compressor and hooks up the electric to the indoor panel.

I suspect I could have gotten it a bit cheaper.

Most companies want to sell them to you installed. That is anywhere between 2500 to 3500 (depending on the size, area that you want to heat, and the company).

Napoleon pushes their model alot. Even Sears carry them now. Mine is UHF, imported by a firm in Moncton from China and distributed mostly through pluming shops.

It cost me about $100. a day to operate in the winter(depending on the temperature). On cold days it could be a few pennies more.

It works very well for me, as I have a energy efficient house that is open concept.

There is a government grant, but I did not apply for it. To be eligible, you foist have to arrange for an energy audit, that costs from 150 to 175.

What seems to be the difference in various brands is the compressor. There are a few different ones, mostly made in Japan. The warranty can differ, as well as service level). My indoor unit is warranted for two years and the compressor for five-hich is about standard.
