I looked back at the dew point numbers here. Over the last week, they ranged between the high 20's and just hit 40°f, a few times.. The dew point varies from 75F (24C) to 80F (27C). The dew point sets a limit on how cool it can get, so when that limit is reached the humidity is 100% and we get a really heavy dew.
Fortunately, the thermometer didn't take the opportunity and only dropped into the 30's once.
This morning, while it was still dark outdoors, I checked online and learned that it was raining! I have just been out and see that the back steps aren't even wet ... maybe, I won't have to re-spray the Spinosad on the dahlias. Yesterday, I decided that, left alone, the earwigs have shredded some of the plants. This is one of the situations where those plants may survive 2021 but the tubers won't have enough strength to survive the 2021-22 winter.
delaying washing and hanging clothes out until late morning, tho ... i'm not sure why
