    Default Not so good in South Central...

    Monday I was trout fishing so of course caught 7 kings Hard work for a guy looking for easy game but that's how it went. Yesterday (Friday the solstice) I took a boat ride with some visitors up a river where just last year on the 21'st there were a few salmon around. Yesterday? Nada, none, ziltch, nothing, none seen, non-existent, nice clear water so it was obvious that in ten miles of water I didn't pass a single salmon.

    Sorry to keep bearing bad news but it is what it is right now.

    The 87F temp on Monday should be helpful.

    Smart phone Larry, I can post from the cabin. We have 2 decent thermometers here, one inside one outside. At 5 PM it was 93 in the shade and when the sun got on it the thing read 106!

    This is our third week of this, I can work outside until noon then we go dive off the dock. Last I heard was that the fire near Talkeetna is going hard. Only good thing is low wind speeds, if the.wind picks up it's gonna be a long one. Nancy caught a plane into Skwentna at 11 this morning and she said they had to climb up to 3500 to get above the smoke.

    I can vouch for the intensity of the July sun there. Is there enough snow left at higher elevations to make to make the "creeks" rise? I don't know if they have long-term weather records for anything other than the major AK cities, but sounds like Anchorage's all-time record high is going to be eclipsed this weekend. I hope it cools off for you soon. It continues to rain every few days here in the Midwest.

    Those temperatures are just incredible, hard for me to imagine it getting that warm up there.

    We are finally getting some warmer weather, here is what they are forecasting the next ten days here in Pinedale, WY:

    I have been waiting for the last 2 weeks to go and explore the Cariboo - Chilcotin area down here in BC, but it's been raining and cold. Everything is upside down this year.

    I can say that it is very hot . The glacial rivers are raging as the ice melts . The rivers that aren't fed by ice are dropping. I'll go fishing when I get home.

    Fairbanks fires are sending smoke this way, Kenai fire is also sending smoke here .

    The lake is cool, no fireworks, no campfires, everyone is being cool here
