Backyard Almanac: A Wet June Concludes

"It's hasn't been that summerish," says Larry Weber. The temperatures have not been that warm (particularly as it compares to the rest of the country.) Some of the mornings in the Northland have even been in the 40s in these first days of summer.

The rain has been falling frequently and the sun is starting to rise later. The sun is also going to begin setting earlier; 9:07pm is as late as the sunsets are going to get this summer.

The list of animals to keep an eye open for is a long one. Between turtles, frogs, and red-winged black birds, the swamps are lively. The days are filled with butterflies and dragonflies, and the nights are still adorned with fireflies.

You can hear Backyard Almanac every Friday at 8:20am on Northland Morning.
