Good morning and welcome to Friday.
Got the day off, and we'll have the #2 grandson.
Maybe he'll want to spend the night, we'll see.
It's 75 at the moment, and headed towards 86.

Nothing like having the grandkids visit. How old are they? Another hot day here. Cut most of grass yesterday for 4 hours and hope to finish today. 2 more hours.

Fair 64°F 18°C
Humidity 94%
Wind Speed Calm
Barometer 30.04 in
Folgers and Orios.
Looks like another nice day in store. We need rain.
The electricians arrived at Oh Dark Thirty this morning to finish the install of the Generac System.
Man, those guys get up early.
I need to finish getting the old Winnebago ready for our next trip. Don't worry, I'm taking you all along. :lol:
This time it's Duluth on Sunday for three days and then to the Blue Grass Festival for the rest of the week.

For Earnie: The reason I load 357 down to 38 special and not just shoot 38 special to begin with, is that the
lead will build up in front of the case mouth after a few rounds, and then it makes it difficult to shoot the
357 after the 38 as the lead build up makes it hard to insert the 357 into the cylinder.

Woke up to 51, almost seemed “cold” outside. :lol: High today is 81 which is nice as it’s golf day. That should make for a really nice day on the course.

We had another wildfire break out yesterday about 1.5 hours from Spokane. It burned six homes in the town of Lind WA. A farmer running a combine nearby was the cause of the fire. He was interviewed on the news and said a bearing failed and started the fire. He has his own fire truck but by the time he was able to get the truck to the fire it was too large to fight. 25-35 mph winds at the time so despite his good intentions there was no stopping it. Today is supposed to be much calmer fortunately. This fire is out but the first fire near Cheney WA is still burning with evacuations in place. Sure could use some rain.

87° this morning with 81% humidity. There's a chance of thunderstorms in the area this afternoon. Just had cereal and coffee for breakfast. I have a fairly busy work schedule today.

Yes, was nice yesterday and only supposed get to 87 today but forecast says back in the 100's by Sunday for a few days and then mid 90's. No rain at all in the 10 day forecast. Unfortunately most rain we get around here in the Summer usually comes with thunder and lightning storms so can actually cause more fires and in more remote areas than human caused fires.

Luckily currently there are only a few fires and no really large ones.

Coffee and cookies.
Fair my behind. It's so overcast and dark that the night lights in the yard are on. I think it might rain.😁
Boy do we need a good rain.
We were invited to Carol's best friends home last evening for dinner. She lost her 51 year old husband a few
months ago to Covid. She's coping as well as can be expected. Sad.
Today I need to get the old Winnebago into the yard to load up for our trip starting tomorrow morning.
The problem is it looks like it will rain on and off all day so I'm going to get wet.

First Sat. of Aug., not sure what's happening today.
I need to setup some cameras, didn't get to yesterday as it rained most of it,
and we needed it.
May load some 38-55's.

90's and humid today. Couple cups of good coffee and off to the Grocery store for the weeks supplies.
Got all my reloading stuff hauled out to the new bench yesterday and sorted out (for now). Have more reading to do and want to get familiar with equipment before I do anything.
Have a good weekend.
