Dry Stretches in the Forecast for First Half of April

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Dry Stretches in the Forecast for First Half of April SHARE Leave this field empty if you’re human: Facebook Twitter Dry Stretches in the Forecast for First Half of AprilHoosier Ag Today Chief Meteorologist Ryan Martin maintains that spring 2020 will look better than spring 2019 (thank goodness). Martin says that across the country, “We’re hearing a lot of stories out there, a lot of folks promoting flooding as being an issue and a lot of gloom and doom. Honestly, right now, I’m not seeing that.”Here in the Eastern Corn Belt, “I think we’re going to see a lot more variability in temperature than we are precipitation,” says Martin. “We’re in the midst of a situation right now, for example, it’s been dry. We haven’t had any moisture since this past Saturday night/Sunday. Problem is, we haven’t seen sunshine in a lot of areas. So, how can we evaporate?”Martin thinks we could see three, four, or maybe even five day stretches of dry conditions between rain events here in the near term.“What we have to watch for then is what kind of moisture comes with the rain events that do come through. What I’m seeing here for the first half of April is a setup that lends itself to rain events that are moderate at the worst. So, we don’t see big thunderstorms developing right now which means I think between now and April 15 or April 20, we have a pretty good shot at seeing some net drying.”Martin says the second half of April could see more thunderstorm activity.There is one area that Martin is concerned might get more moisture than most over the next month.“Southern Indiana, down near the Ohio River, southwestern parts of Ohio, even back into Southern Illinois. If there is an area that I’m concerned about more moisture over this next month, it’s those areas.”You can see Martin’s Indiana Farm Forecast daily here and you can have it sent directly to your inbox weekdays by subscribing to receive our e-newsletter (see below).

Oteil Burbridge & Friends Kick Off New Year’s Run At The Capitol Theatre [Full-Show Video]

first_imgBassist Oteil Burbridge welcomed jam fans to The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY on Thursday for the first of five shows under the billing Oteil & Friends leading up to New Year’s Eve. That roster of “Friends” was comprised of an impressive group of heavy-hitters from the jam realm including former Jerry Garcia Band keyboardist Melvin Seals, guitarists Eric Krasno and John Kadlecik, singer/trumpet player Jennifer Hartswick, drummer Jay Lane, and percussionist Weedie Briamah.The band’s performance on Thursday filled the historic venue with a mix of classic rock (mostly Grateful Dead) covers and smooth jams to help fans in the New York Metro Area prepare for the upcoming run of New Year’s Eve shows scheduled to take place in the Northeast all weekend.Oteil & Friends took the stage right around 8:30 p.m., with fans from around the country also tuning in via the show’s free webcast courtesy of Relix. The band started set one by diving right into the Garcia solo catalogue with a groovy rendition of “Cats Under The Stars” featuring some smooth guitar soloing from both Krasno and Kadlecik. A lively cover of “Bertha” with Kadlecik on lead vocals came next, with the guitarist having plenty of experience in singing the Grateful Dead tune from his days in Dark Star Orchestra. The tempo took a slower turn for Jennifer Hartswick to step to the mic to tackle a moving rendition of “Water in the Desert”, the title track from Oteil’s 2017 solo LP. A pair of Dead covers followed from there, as Oteil took lead vocals on “Althea” before leading the band into “Fire On The Mountain”. The set came to a close with Hartswick taking center stage again to deliver an energizing rendition of soul classic “Piece of My Heart”, popularized by Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company.Set two saw the band dive right into a trio of covers including The Band‘s “The Weight”, Garcia’s “Run for the Roses”, and the Grateful Dead’s “Shakedown Street”, with the latter featuring an impressive trumpet solo courtesy of Hartswick. The band kept the dance-friendly rhythms going with Kadlecik returning to the mic to lead the group into a cover of his own “What’s Become of Mary”.Burbridge then took the opportunity to slow things down for a unique and slow rendition of “High Time”, only to pick the energy right back up with the familiar opening trio of chords to “Franklin’s Tower”. They continued with “Tangled Up In Blue”, the Bob Dylan tune often performed by the Jerry Garcia Band back in the day. The show came to a satisfying conclusion with Hartswick once again returning to the stage to lead the band into a climactic rendition of Creedence Clearwater Revival‘s “Proud Mary”.You can watch a full pro-shot video of the show below:Oteil & Friends – The Capitol Theatre – 12/27/2018[Video: Relix]Oteil Burbridge and his talented Friends will continue their run leading up to New Year’s Eve on Monday with shows at Philadelphia’s Tower Theatre on Friday (in support of Gov’t Mule), a return to The Cap on Saturday, and two year-ending gigs at New York City’s Brooklyn Bowl on Sunday (12/30) and Monday (12/31).
