Washington State shows the mountains at normal I can confirm temps were normal and we didnt have any serious problem with fires. All of Oregon was above normal and California too and thats where the fires were. Some people like to prep... other people like to complain & then subject themselves to the the whims of nature. I like to complain but I know in my heart that its better to simply understand & prepare.

Vermont was much warmer with many nights in the 60’s compared to low 50’s this summer. Overall the warmer evenings increased our personal best by 350 pounds.

MN was a bit of weather whiplash. Decent growing through much of the summer, then early cool down/frost in September. Really impressed that the 2350 pushed as much as it did at the end of the season.

2 major pumpkin shut down here in MA in mid August. Which was a shame since they were growing strong at the time. But heat was definitely up there

If I am looking at the map right, it's temps of one region compared to itself? For example, if New York has a red spot, it doesn't mean they had higher temps than Louisiana who is white? It just means New York varied more in its historical temps than La did?

Missouri was definitely not too hot this summer. We had plenty of decent rain too, and prob would have been a great year to grow AGs. It was a nice summer for Covid to hit and be outside a lot.

Yeah it shows the departure from norms. Pretty sure the dice are loaded for above normal...
