Today, July 12, Larry Weber recounts how July in full swing with hot weather with less then desirable rainfall.  However, big summertime storms can bring rainfall measurements back in line in just a few hours.

This time of year is good for wildflowers, berries, birds, insects which means lots of spiders, and beautiful spider webs.  In July we also are in butterfly, moth and dragonfly season.

Other highlights include and of course great Jupiter viewing and plentiful fireflies.
