Tons of Waste Accepted at Rapp Road Landfill, 2016

Generally tonnage of waste accepted at the Rapp Road Landfill declined as year progressed, with an increase of construction and demolition debris and declining MSW. Sewage sludge ash increased in the spring months, possibility due to the sewage treatment plants operating at a higher output during the spring months.

Weekend Temperatures

While the Memorial Day Weekend Forecast has gotten more sunny and less rainy, it's going to be cool one, with temperatures struggling to reach 70 on Saturday, and temperatures only in the low 70s on Sunday and Monday. We should be around 72-73 degrees this time of year, and last year was much warmer.

Sunshine During the Week of May 26, 2017

The latest forecast for the long weekend. While I won't say this will be the nicest Memorial Day Weekend ever, after this damp, cloudy evening, there will be some blue skies on and off throughout the weekend. Saturday afternoon will even have more sun then clouds, and with temperatures expected to reach the mid-70s, it should be fairly pleasant -- but even Sunday morning should have some blue skies.

Black flies — there really is only one solution to them: don’t be hanging out until they are gone for the night. That means waiting for darkness to come over the land. Then the party can get started.

Black flies aren’t out all night. So that’s the best time to up and own doing things. Like cooking dinner, drinking beer, and hanging out by the campfire. There is nothing wrong with staying up all night during black fly season, because the days really aren’t that wonderful, if you don’t like getting eaten alive.

Granted, in the darkness, you are somewhat restricted in what you can do. But bring a flashlight, and hell, maybe a bunch of Christmas lights, party lights, and big bright 100-watt equivalent florescent lights, and pretend it’s day light. It’s also cooler, and generally much nicer in then in the day time.

During black fly season, the whole purpose of the day is to be sleeping, and recovering from the hang overs of the previous night.
