Release planning week. Little frustrated that the prioritization on the board has no resemblance to the prioritization in my counterpart's mind. Hope they fix that this morning.
I'd hoped we could do more small team work, partly to ease things for my quiet colleagues, partly to let some folks have more leadership than others. However, that wasn't a hit. Pondering.


Rain here. Rain! Mercury news headline: "A June 'Monsoon'?" Christine notes the article reports that June 2011 accumulated 2 inches during the second wettest June on record (with four days of recorded rain).

Looking at the Wunderground weather history for Moffett Field: the trace of rain on Sunday set the record for precipitation on that date, but yesterday's .02 inches didn't surpass the 1975 .06 inches. Looking at the data for SJC, yesterday's .04 did not surpass the .15 inches in 1912, nor did Sunday's trace surpass the 0.05 inches in 1912.

Of course, given the year to date accumulation of 2.24 inches (compared to an average of 9.88 inches at SJC) the month's accumulation of .08 inches at SJC is ... less than 4% of the total.

Our colleagues from Ohio seem to not mind. Meanwhile, i find it terribly humid.

The dew point looks close to 70 there? That seems uncomfortably humid to me.

Thanks -- it's good to hear that from someone in NC! I haven't ever made sense of dew points since moving to CA. The fog and low marine layer don't feel humid, but it certainly adds moisture.

Even though I've lived here almost 20 years, I've never gotten used to the humidity, although NYC in the summer is more miserable due to congestion and commuting, even if it's not quite as hot.
I don't quite understand how dew point works, but in the summer, anything over 60 is not pleasant, and over 70 is really unpleasant. Cooler and humid might not feel so bad where you are.

This afternoon it's 84F with a dewpoint of 72, so feels like 90 :( and the dog needs walkies once it gets shadier.
