first_imgOn Saturday, September 9th, an impressive crew of musicians converged on the Mountain Theater in Marin County, CA’s Mount Tamalpais State Park for the 2018 edition of Sound Summit: A Benefit For The Mountain. This year, jazz-funk icon Herbie Hancock led an artist roster including Grace Potter, Nikki Lane, and Con Brio. In addition, the event saw Bob Weir reunite with his former RatDog rhythm section (drummer Jay Lane and bassist Robin Sylvester) as Bobby & The Chew Toys.With Weir serving as the event’s special guest, the Grateful Dead guitarist had some memorable sit-ins. In addition to joining Hancock for a jam on his Head Hunters classic, “Chameleon“, Weir sat in on Grace Potter’s set for a rendition of the Dead’s outlaw ballad, “Friend of the Devil”. With Potter on acoustic and Weir on an electric guitar, the two traded off vocal duties on verses before coming back together on the chorus with some breezy harmonies. Grace Potter ended the collaboration by hollering, “Give it up for your hometown boy, Mr. Bobby Weir!”You can watch full fan-shot footage of Bob Weir’s sit-in with Grace Potter at Sound Summit 2018 below:Grace Potter w/ Bob Weir – “Friend Of The Devil”[Video: Deadheadland Films]Sound Summit is building a reputation as a breeding ground for incredible collaborations. Last year, Weir sat in with Jim James at the event. Later in the evening, both Weir and James joined in with Phil Lesh & Friends. We can’t wait to see what magic Sound Summit cooks up for next year.Sound Summit is presented by Roots & Branches Conservancy, a group dedicated to raising funds for natural resource protection and conservation of Mount Tamalpais State Park and the surrounding areas.

first_imgWhile 2013 gave Georgians a break from the state’s usual sweltering summer temperatures, summer 2014 is shaping up to be more of a standard-issue Georgia scorcher. June’s temperatures were near to slightly above normal for the entire state. No temperature records were set.June temperaturesIn Atlanta, the monthly average temperature was 78.2 degrees F (0.9 degrees above normal); in Athens it was 79.7 degrees (1.2 above normal); in Columbus it was 80 degrees (0.2 above normal); in Macon it was 78.6 degrees (0.3 below normal); in Savannah it was 81.1degrees (1.3 above normal); in Brunswick it was 80.3 degrees (0.0 above normal); in Alma it was 80.1 degrees (0.4 above normal); and in Augusta it was 78.9 degrees (0.4 above normal). While temperatures were near normal across the state, rainfall totals varied significantly. The wettest conditions were in the northwest corner of the state and the driest conditions were in the southwest. South of Macon, much of the state received less rainfall than normal. June rainfallThe highest monthly total rainfall reported by National Weather Service observers was 11.64 inches in Savannah (5.69 inches above normal), and the lowest was in Augusta at 2.27 inches (2.31 inches below normal). Atlanta received 5.1 inches (1.15 above normal); Athens received 3.74 inches (0.44 below normal); Macon received 5.65 inches (1.59 above normal); Alma received 3.16 inches (2.22 below normal); and Brunswick received 4.76 inches (0.08 below normal).Two daily precipitation records were set in June. On June 23, Columbus set a daily record of 2.17 inches, surpassing the old record of 1.10 inches set in 1980. On June 24, Savannah reported 6.65 inches, more than doubling the old daily record of 3.29 inches set in 1884. This also surpassed Savannah’s all-time June daily rainfall record of 6.6 inches set on June 29, 1999. It was also the thirteenth wettest calendar day on record for Savannah.Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network volunteers reported their highest daily rainfall from Garden City in Chatham County on June 24 with 4.97 inches. Two other Chatham County observers, one in Pooler and one just north of Savannah, reported 4.72 and 4.71 inches, respectively, on the same day. The highest monthly total rainfall was 10.14 inches, observed 10 miles north of Ellijay in Gilmer County, followed by 9.77 inches measured west of LaFayette in Walker County and 9.60 inches set east-northeast of Helen in Habersham County. Severe weatherSevere weather occurred in Georgia on 21 out of 30 days in June. Most severe weather reports involved wind damage associated with scattered thunderstorms. But, on several days early in the month, organized systems of storms called derechos blew into Georgia from northwest towards the southeast, causing widespread damaging winds. Observers documented one EF-1 tornado on June 8 in Troup County. It moved from northwest to southeast and damaged trees, cars and a greenhouse. The National Weather Service report on this storm can be found at www.srh.noaa.gov/ffc/?n=20140608_tornado.Crops across the state generally did well in June, and progression of most crops was similar to last year. Regions that were wetter experienced more foliar diseases. By the end of the month farmers in some regions were concerned about the lack of rain and dryness in soil moisture, particularly at the surface. July has an increased chance of warmer than normal temperatures, but equal chances for above, near or below normal rainfall.
