May Weather

Posted on by

first_imgMay was wet, cool and cloudy throughout most of the state. That wet, cool weather kept the soil too wet to plant in some areas, while fields were too dry in others. In either case, Georgia farmers found their planting schedules delayed until the end of the month. North Georgia was very wet, with areas north of Atlanta receiving 5 inches more than normal over the course of the month. The southwest corner of Georgia was well below normal, however, receiving 3 inches less rain than normal. The highest monthly precipitation total reported by the National Weather Service station was 5.26 inches observed in Atlanta (1.59 inches below normal) and the lowest was the station in Augusta with 2.26 inches (0.39 inches below normal). Athens received 3.63 inches (0.63 above normal). Macon received 3.95 inches (1.23 above normal). Brunswick received 3.40 inches (1.54 above normal). Columbus received 2.86 inches (0.33 below normal). Alma received 3.02 inches (0.55 above normal). Savannah received 3.16 inches (0.08 above normal). Minor flooding was seen mid-month in northern Georgia where soils were saturated from the heavy rain. Roads and water lines were affected in some areas, leading to “boil water” advisories in a few locations. Drought operations on Lake Hartwell ended on May 7 as heavy rainfall in the northern part of the basin and releases from Lake Hartwell upstream raised the lake levels at Thurmond Dam above 328 feet for the first time since March 30, 2011. The last time the water at Thurmond Lake was above 328 feet for any period of time was February 2010. The highest daily precipitation measurement reported by Community Collaborative Rain Hail Snow Network was 6.40 inches on May 19 near Flowery Branch in Hall County. An observer near Suwanee reported 5.18 inches on the same date. Most of this rain fell in less than six hours. The highest total rainfall observed in May was 14.32 inches near Cumming in Forsyth County, followed by 13.27 inches from the Flowery Branch observer. Despite the rain, cooler weather helped to reduce the amount of severe weather Georgia saw in May. Severe weather was reported on five days; however, all but one of the reports was for scattered wind damage. A May 21 report described nickel-sized hail near Jackson in Butts County. In Atlanta, the monthly average temperature was 68.1 degrees F (2 degrees below normal). In Athens, the average was 67.4 degrees (2.6 degrees below normal); in Columbus, the average was 71.5 degrees (1.5 degrees below normal); in Macon, it was 68.4 degrees (3.5 degrees below normal); in Savannah, it was 71.7 degrees (1.6 degrees below normal); in Augusta, it was 68.4 degrees (2.7 below normal); in Alma, it was 70.6 degrees (3.1 below normal); and in Brunswick, it was 73.0 degrees (1.5 below normal). Atlanta set a new record low for daytime temperature with 59 degrees on May 6, breaking the old record of 62 degrees set in 1920. Columbus had a record low daytime temperature of 66 degrees on the same day, breaking the old record of 67 degrees set in 1992. Augusta set a record low temperature of 40 degrees on May 14, breaking the old record of 42 degrees set in 1997, and Savannah posted a new record low of 48 degrees on the same date, breaking the old record of 49 degrees set in 1997. By the end of May, soil temperatures warmed enough for most planting to proceed, and soil moisture levels decreased in northern Georgia, allowing farmers to enter their fields and finish planting. The wet conditions in the north fostered lush growth of hay but caused some disease problems in small grains. Dry conditions in the south caused delays in planting due to lack of needed soil moisture. Overall, the crops were delayed by about two to three weeks due to the spring weather across Georgia.last_img read more

Woman who says she was ‘sucker punched’ by Syracuse lacrosse player argues he deserves harsher punishment

Posted on by

first_imgThe woman who was punched in the face by a Syracuse lacrosse player last weekend said he should’ve been punished more harshly and deserves to face the consequences of his actions.Kendall Talbot, 20, of Brewerton, New York, said in an interview with The Daily Orange that she didn’t know SU midfielder Hayes McGinley until he “sucker punched” her in the face, breaking her cigarette in half and causing her tooth to pierce her lip. The incident followed a heated argument outside Insomnia Cookies on Marshall Street, where she was working on the night of March 14.“It’s the consequences of your actions,” she said during an interview at her house on Monday. “If you want to be on the team you can’t be like ‘Oh, I’m going to go out and get sh*tfaced tonight and expect nothing bad’s going to happen.’ Because you’re not you when you’re sh*tfaced.”Syracuse Athletics announced on Sunday that McGinley was suspended from the lacrosse team indefinitely due to an unspecified violation of team rules. He was suspended from the team on March 15, one day after he was charged with two counts of harassment in the second degree in connection with the incident involving Talbot.Talbot said she thought McGinley should have been charged with assault instead of harassment, and that police could have added a drunk and disorderly charge as well. She added that portions of the police report misrepresented what happened and that McGinley already “looked like sh*t” and had claw marks on his throat when she first saw him.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHarassment in the second degree is punishable by a maximum $250 fine and/or a maximum of 15 days in jail. McGinley was arraigned in Syracuse City Court on March 15 and is due back in court on April 14.Talbot’s co-worker, William Weaver, 29, of Syracuse, was also involved in the incident and pressed charges against McGinley. Weaver could not be reached for comment on Monday.Talbot was working inside Insomnia Cookies when she noticed Weaver and another man, who she later found out was McGinley, standing near her car. She went outside to ask them to move away from the brand new car she had purchased five days earlier.When she went outside, she saw McGinley, who was pulling on the handle, trying to get in the car because he insisted that it was his ride.McGinley had already been arguing with Weaver and had punched him by the time she got outside, Talbot said. When she came out, the argument escalated with Talbot telling McGinley that he needed to “get the f*ck away from my car right f*cking now.”McGinley grabbed her chest, she said — though Talbot noted that she didn’t think he meant anything sexual by it. And she hit him back. The two continued to argue for about 30 minutes before it died down. Stressed out, she lit a cigarette as he was walking away. Then she was blindsided by his punch, which caused the cigarette to break in half, she said.“I understand like, I hit you first, but if you had punched me right after I hit you and not half an hour after I hit you, fair game,” Talbot said. “But you’re gonna sucker punch me like half an hour after, after we’ve been talking?“… I wasn’t even looking. It was a straight sucker punch.”Talbot went to the hospital after the police left at the insistence of her co-workers. She didn’t need stitches and a week later, she said the cut has healed. But the incident put her in a bad mood and she chain smoked for about two hours afterward and let her co-workers run the store.Talbot said she played sports in high school and believes that if you want to play on a team you have to abide by a code of conduct and can’t take risks like McGinley did.“I don’t want to ruin your life but you need to think, I don’t care who you are, if you’re going to make bad choices you’ve got to learn from them at some point,” Talbot said. ”That’s how you’re going to better yourself and if you’ve got to learn the hard way that’s not my fault.” Comments Published on March 23, 2015 at 2:54 pm Related Stories Syracuse midfielder Hayes McGinley suspended indefinitely after punching 2 people, arrestHayes McGinley’s lawyer said suspended SU midfielder had ‘no recognition’ of his actions that led to arrestcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
