we're supposed to have milder than normal! <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/cheer.gif" alt=":yay:" title="yay" /> that's what it said last year and we did have a milder winter but the winter went on until almost June with highs in the 30s and lows in the 20s... that was harsh. Cold and rainy right now-about 46 degrees... in August. sigh
It was pouring down rain here too, and 47 degrees when I got up.
Considering that it was 98 degrees only 4 days ago, this is heaven!
Supposed to be back up to 80 by this Labor day weekend. Wouldn't be surprised if we have a typical Indian Summer starting then.
Those usually come with one or two cool rain storms and lots of very pleasant sunny days. Good fishing weather!
However! Next week is fair week. It almost always starts warm, but by the middle to end of the week, we get a cool storm.
The two cool storms we just have had, have chased the Mourning doves out of the country and probably ruined our dove hunt in a couple of days.
Mourning dove are so sensitive to the cold, I believe a near miss by a single snowflake would curl one of the little blighters toes up and he'd tumble out of the tree frozen stiff.
I have not seen my flocks of geese coming and going as typical for the past month or so... my big furry dog started shedding his winter coat in JULY... and he's still shedding chunks right now. Usually there are constant flocks of ducks and geese flying around every evening... <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/dunno.gif" alt="Dunno" title="dunno" /> Mama Osprey still teaching her two young to fly this week... saw one over the river this morning-maybe fishing- with its mom right there watching over it from the gigantic nest on the bridge near my house that straddles the mighty Snake.

There was a 'small black bear' in my back pond area last fall... I don't know... it is all different this year. We had a hellacious hail storm Saturday-big winds from all directions and when it was coming down from the Jackson direction the thunder sounded and felt like a freight train was going berserk UNDER the ground. Really an outrageous storm. Definitely felt like at least a September storm v an August storm... but we are all hoping for a late long Indian summer as we really haven't had much of one this year.

Just got through pouring down rain at 11 pm tonight. Good-I can lay out my fire hoses so they can dry out for the winter. All done with watering for this season and the trees all are getting a good drink. Here's hoping my Toro makes it through the rest of this season intact. Only one belt change out for me this year! (raised the level from 3 to 4...and that helped considerably with the blades and belts). I use it to mow all the tonnage of leaves I'll have laying around next month.
I guess the big storm you're talking about was the same one that hit West Yellowstone at 95 MPH and tore heck out of all the buildings?
We got a good soaking rain out of it down here, a few claps of thunder, but that's all.
I see you guys are gonna get more rain in the forecast tonight or tomorrow.
Are you seeing any fresh snow on the mountain tops up there yet?
Weather lady said there might be some around already. Maybe after the next storm tho?
It's coming, and the way it's going so far, could sure be there in Sept.
Our show is an outdoor one at Sawtell lodge this weekend.
I hope no wind or rain. It's supposed to warm up a little over the weekend, and then back to 70s and maybe a storm next thursday.
Things sure have taken the turn!

oooh I didn't hear about W Yellowstone but the one that hit us was so hard and weird. Winds, rains, hail, bigger hail-more winds... it was rugged and cold. Trying to sun up here right now but total cloud surround. Breezy---I need some more wood! out of the temple timbers!
