Which makes me late again. Oh well, Late, as the saying goes, seems to be my middle name. But while I have been busy, I don’t know that all that much has been going on. Garden, loom projects, cabin rentals… We had a week of over 100 degrees. It hit 114 one day. Then the next week, this past one .was cool. We had one day with a high in the mid 70’s. I think the drives the garden nuts, too. My peaches are just now starting to soften and we had our first tomato for dinner last night. It was yummy! It’s an heirloom Oxheart. There’s another one ripe now, too, and lots of green ones.
And yesterday we were threatened by the Weather Wizards with heavy Thunder storms and flash floods. All we had was some distant thunder.
…about 1am I heard water running in the dry flume outside my bedroom window. Our “flash flood” had arrived. It fid not seem enough to worry about so went back to sleep. And it did no damage to us but the poor fishes did not fair so well. Apparently the heave storms were up in the alps in the burn scares from last year. Nothing to stop the runoff & it brought all sorts of mud and muck with it down Coffee Creek, into Treasure Creek and branched into the dry flume though the yard. It’s ugly and it looks like Coffee Creek Road is out again, too. The dump trucks being used for clean up of last years fire went up this morning as usual but came down again empty, which indicates they can’t get to where they are working. A while later some county road dept trucks and equipment went up and we haven’t seen them back yet.
Here’s what it looked like this morning. and it still looks like that. The water level has dropped a little from the early hours but it is just as dark and thick.
This is the flume behind the shop. That ‘hill’ is mucky foam that forms when the stuff if forced though the culvert.
And now the thunder is booming overhead. This in spite of the wizards telling us the storm has moved on. Crystal ball is wrong again!
Randy been called by Search and Rescue to go to Siskiyou to the fire over there and help hunt for missing people. Not a search he’s looking forward to.
Hope you are having a reasonable summer!
