May 1, 2019 - We are at the peak of our wildfire season. The combination of longer days, warmer temps. & a lack of consistent rainfall all add up to vegetation that's ready to ignite & quickly spread. We haven't been terribly dry recently but not real wet either. March rainfall was nearly 2" below average while April was just about where we should be still less than 3 inches. You can listen to a roundtable discussion on the widlfire season lead by WOKV's Rich Jones * here *.
Speaking of May..... averages at JIA:
Low / High - 1st: 58 / 82.... 31st: 67 / 88
Sunrise / Sunset: 1st - 6:43am / 8:04pm.... 31st - 6:25am / 8:28pm - gain 37 min. of daylight.
Our First Alert Weather app has been updated. A new version was created & uploaded in April but is constantly undergoing revisions & updates.
And ... finally.... one of our local Jacksonville church's "doing good". Deermeadows Baptist Church is outfitting a disaster relief trailer:
To help our church quickly respond when a disaster hits, and to give us the tools necessary when going into the mission field, we have purchased a new Disaster Relief Trailer. Our Missions Committee and Helping Hands made this trailer possible. Now all we need is to fill it up with tools and equipment. That’s where you come in!
We have created an online registry CLICK HERE to make this process really easy. Also, note our needed items have a range of prices. We did this so kids can join in on the fun, too!
When you have finalized your purchase, you have two options:
Have the item(s) shipped directly to your house. Then, bring your item(s) to church.
Have the item(s) shipped directly to Deermeadows: 9780 Baymeadows Rd Jacksonville, FL 32256
Need a donation letter? We have you covered! Those can be picked up at the church office upon request.
