IT’S BACCCCCCCCCCCCK — Tuesday, June 22, 2021

Saturday we had clouds come in—–and a smattering of delightful rain.

Smoke in the sky—-still.

Then last evening,

as we rode out to change the irrigation water,  we rode in gigantic surging drifts

and volleying gusts

of a staggering force of the dirty wind.

At least it didn’t last long.  This morning it is gone.

Although, the sky is still pretty smokey.

  1. Sure wish we could share our rain. We got flooded with another almost 2.5 inches yesterday. Always grateful for it, but wish we could share.


  2. Goodness. The West is in a terrible drought, stretching all the way to the Dakotas & Nebraska. There are records being broken all over the place. I was reading last night that, Utah has been this dry in, like, 1,200 years…or something like that:

    Sending you rain wishes, Momma. We got *some* rain from Tropical Claudette but, not as much as they were calling for. Alabama got the worst of it.
