OMG, Mike I didn't realize you were that close to everything going on there. Hope you and the fam are ok.


Radar shows you may be getting some rain today. Fingers crossed, right?

Triple crossed, I'm guessing we won't know for a few more days when they finally let us back into the area and onto the ranch.

Red arrow shows the hunting cabin, orange overlay shows the fire perimeter; we're just inside it meaning the cabin may have lit up.

Wow Mike! That really sucks to be so close to the wrong side of the edge.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

They opened the roads yesterday to residents only. I'll try to get up to the ranch this week if they'll let us enter the area. I did receive a call from the local rancher and he said the fire came within a foot of our cabin, no fire damage so that was great news. No word on our water tank, generator, etc. My cousin's four seat Can Am didn't survive, we joke that it caused a backfire that saved the cabin.

Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

Weather Entry


This was taken while we were in Hawaii, earlier in the month. Approaching the reef for the snorkeling tour. We had some unusually odd weather for Hawaii this time of year, due the strong El Nino going on right now in the Pacific.


I have three others, I will post once the poll is created, but I have been argueing with myself over which to post, because they are all weather related.  Loco

Now that the poll is created I can share the others I was thinking about using.

Beautiful Blue Sky's, Sandy Beaches and warm Weather.


Brilliant Green Landscape. You know on this side of the island they receive 130+ inches in rain every year?



This is right outside of Honolulu on the way to Waikiki. In the background you can see Honolulu Clock tower. But this ship has several NEXRAD and other Radar all over the deck. Very cool.


USS Arizona Memorial. No commentary needed.
