It has been forever…and there is so much to tell.
I guess I can start with some of the latest news and work backwards.
It has rained and rained and rained and rained and snowed and snowed and rained here… We’ve had 2 weeks of wet weather, but the last four days have been phenomenal. It is Memorial Day weekend, the first popular camping weekend around here, but most campsites are flooded, or mudded in, or still deep in snow. Our creek is overflowing and flooding various points scattered throughout the ranch, but nothing of real importance. Sites in many towns are flooded though… remember that when you build your dream home ten feet from the creek bank! I have never seen the Nowood flood so much… or Crazy Woman Creek. I wish I’d taken a photo of that, but I was a little preoccupied at the time. That’s the story of Crossing the Big Horn Mountains in a Blizzard on May 22. For a country that averages 12-14 inches per year in moisture…we have almost 2 inches in the past four days. It is green, but soggy!
