Thunderheads building this afternoon, nothing on radar but it's muggy outside. I'm hoping this is a good sign and we get much needed rain in my area and not just dry lightening.

Great SMELL in the air coming over Kebler pass on the way to Crested Butte this afternoon. Thunder and Lightning too. Hopefully no new fires were sparked. It actually rained pretty hard. I had to close the windows and turn on the wipers. Feels good to be in the relative coolness of CB.....so good to have a reprieve from the heat. It'll be hard going back to the desert when my vacation is over.

Beautiful rain in Crested Butte this afternoon. Cooled things down very nicely.

Rained again overnight in CB, and it must have been a pretty good rain becasue I noticed a few puddles alongside the road during my pre-breakfast, leg stretcher walk thru town. Here's hoping it rains again today, but at 9:16 AM there is nary a cloud in the sky.

No rain here at all other than the whole .02 inch the other night. Thunderheads build and go away.

Saw on THE INTERNET about the 10,000 acre in Garfield County. Good thing I'm forced to watch Denver news and know what's going on 400 miles from me but not 50.

Another 100 degree miserable day forecast.

Jim... take a drive up to the Grand Mesa and give yourself a break from the heat.

Visiting relatives decided to go on a float trip down the Gunnison today (100 degrees I declined). Came back after 6 hours, tired, hot, and very sunburned. It was a part float, part get out and walk dragging the raft trip. Got eaten up with leeches. And it appears to be common practice by the local Delta kids my visiting relatives passed to throw out their empty cans of Keystone Light into the Gunnison.

Now they're on to the Olathe car races, which I also declined.

Enjoying my central air, and quiet.

Drove up to Ridgway this morning to visit. 75 degrees and a nice cool breeze, air was dry. Some folks I visited with complained about the heat. Spoiled!

Anyway, still construction and flaggers in Colona for the HWY 550 expansion, and HWY 62 through Ridgway is a mess while CDOT replaces the bridge over the river. I noticed the reservoir (I didn't say lake jazz) is pretty low. Campgrounds were pretty full. Still a fire ban in place there.

It was great visiting Scotty the Town Marshal, my friends Lee and Carrie at Panny's Pizza, and a few other folks there and catch up on all the town goings on and gossip. I miss Ridgway, can't wait to move back.

Driving back into Delta, 101 degrees, a bit muggy. Traffic was insane through Montrose.
