Update - 7/8/2016
We got hammered by a duo of storm systems today leaving behind badly
needed rain and torn leaves, fallen trees and branches. Winds briefly made
the trees look like buoy's in the ocean. Hail around the size of a gumball
(1") fell in the first system that nearly coated the ground white.
Makes one think how the critters (especially the babes) fare through that
stuff. Sure does dish out a whole new respect for the life we don't generally
Scattered showers are expected through the night (Friday) in to early
Saturday morn when the skies dry up by the afternoon.
Temperatures are expected to get to the high 70's Saturday, low 80's
Sunday and continue to rise up towards the high 80's / low 90's by Tuesday
before slowwwwly receding back down around the low 80's / high 70's on
Friday next week.
Nights should still lull us in sleep with cools temps in the low to
mid 60's then up a tad Tuesday night.
The peak of 90º temps Tuesday will usher in potential storms in
to Wednesday morning. Trails on Saturday morning should prove to be dust
free to kick off the weekend cruise.
All in all the weekend should be great for the outdoor show with nice
temps and mostly clear skies to boot. Should be awesome sky watching Saturday
& Sunday night!.
The woods come alive in song in the early morning and evening hours
from our happy feathered friends. Babies babies everywhere. Sad that so
many become road kill.
Critters are venturing out so please take it easy from dusk to dawn
so to avoid taking out momma and/or one of her new baby's or other furry
critters just starting out.
You may see one deer cross the road, right behind may be a Bambi or
two so please Slow Down, put the stress and anxiety in your pocket
and give life a chance. It'll help you enjoy your life too.

Side effects of Elk Antler Velvet usually appear in Autumn which
may include growing antlers, an urge to bugle, scrape the ground and head
butt any thing or any body that comes near your harem. A slight inconvenience
but they do fall off in the spring.
