I feel like such a slacker - just realized at 5pm today that today is the first of the new month!
May's weather thread showed some very severe weather in the south including Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and surrounding areas. Record rainfalls in many places with terrible flooding. I as well as most others have appreciated all the reports from the folks down there with the pics.
This month's full moon is on June 2nd and called the Strawberry Moon making the name obviously for the ripening of strawberry plants around this time of year.
June is also the summer solstice which is on June 21 - the longest day of the year as far as sunlight is concerned. After June 21 it's all downhill as the daylight hours are shorter each day thereafter.
