Here comes summer
#1
Right now is my favorite time of the year... at least for this area. But summer is coming! And too soon for me. The forecast is for 80s all week and low 90s next weekend. Fck that! But recent summers have brought worse than just heat.... yeah... smoke. Is 'smokey' the new norm for us every summer?

I don't mind the heat too much... as long as there's a/c to cool off every now and then. But the smoke is horrible.  I don't like not being able to breathe.

I'm planning a trip to GP on Tuesday. I hope the weather holds out. I hate making the drive in the rain.

I've never been a fan of heat. (besides which, the AC on the old buick has become depleted and that's that, no more air) And I think people are very, very jumpy about how summer will turn out.

It's already smokey. The haze is filling the air and the air smells like smoke, and I'm coughing and wheezing in a way I wasn't last week.

Hmmm. I wonder where it's coming from. According to the news there is small fire near the Medco ponds right now.

I've heard that. Sounds about right. I've got my window open and the smell of smoke is coming in. There's the Chiloquin fire too, which I don't know the status on that one.

More spring & summer time rants...

People that leave their dogs outside all day... barking incessantly.

People that lay in the sun all day long playing music so loud that the neighbors can't open their windows or doors if they want to be able to hear their television.

Boo-Hiss rude peeps!

Yes my favorite time of year too. Everything is green. Lots of things are blooming. No heat needed or AC.

My buckeye tree is covered withes these huge flowering buds that smell great.

I think that's it. I could see smoke yesterday looking towards Mt. Macgloflin.

In Jackson county people can be fined for barking dogs. Any other noise is just fine. I had neighbors who would get drunk and ride quads at midnight and there was nothing I could do about it.
I called animal control on the same rental with barking dogs after pleading with them to shut them up. AC came out. Their dogs were not licensed or had their shots so they gave the dogs to AC. Fing lowlifes

I think I could see smoke that way before the ponds, from the Chiloquin fire.

I'm so blessed that my new dog never makes a noise. I think I've heard him bark once, because he was startled.

Well unless you you have idiot foo foo dogs they can mostly all be trained. But most of the dogs that bark all the time are left our alone.
