Yeah, WH, it only got to 74 today, sunny and no wind. I took advantage of that and got to shoot my six targets - some were pretty good, but that 100 yard baby is a whole 'nother story, but a whole lot of fun as well.  Going up to high 80's tomorrow, then back to the 90's. Hope you get your targets shot this month.

Oooof! Up here on the green side of our mountain we've had it bad. Almost 100 days no moisture. Now we've had extra heavy monsoons start up. Its been thunder and wet for four days straight. I'm loving the cooler temps having seen the highs in the low 100's for weeks until last Saturday....... But I still can't go outside for too long especially when it's super bright out makes my head pound like a drum squad. But at least the critters now have some water for a little while. We had deer and coyote jump the horse fence to risk a drink from the horse tank. And everything beyond the pond is dead brown dry and dusty. Of course now its all mud!!!!  Oh and the smoke from the fires both north south and west of us have had air quality dreadful for most of the spring. They are still battling several mammoth fires less than fifty miles from here and we had one in the canyon  last week, less than ten miles from here, that shut down I-40 for a day and burned about ten homes.  Not good. Not normal. Not right.

Unfortunately, that seems to be the "new normal".  NOAA weather keeps saying that it is "unseasonably warm".  It will be cool for the morning so I have great plans to get some wax on the car before it heats up again.  I hope to get out on Monday morning to shoot my targets....

On I-84 at 5:20 in Rufus, OR (on the Columbia River), just west of Biggs, OR it is 101 degrees.  Darn, almost feels like summer.

Sorry, Jim, but we were in just so much of a hurry to get back to Kalifornia that we just couldn't spare the time. :o ;banghead; ;banghead;

And if you believe that, there is a piece of Kansas oceanfront property that you might be interested in.
