“Above normal precipitation is favored for areas of the … Northern and Central Rockies,” the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Maryland-based Climate Prediction Center said this week in its 6-10 day forecast. It made the same prediction for 8-14 days and 3-4 weeks out.

Wednesday, Thursday and today the smoke has been horrific–if you didn’t all ready know, we wouldn’t be able to tell we lived in the mountains. Over one million acres have burned so far, homes have been destroyed and people have died. We so need that “fire season ending event!”

Thursday we spent the day in Billings–lunch, a routine doctor’s appointment for the Cowboy and a major Costco run.
The Cowboy has made great progress in the toyhauler–the flooring is installed and he is finishing up the trim work. Once all his tools are out and I’ve cleaned I’ll take some photos of his restoration project.
From our ride on Tuesday.
My sister and I are planning a trip to the Outer Banks early next summer. We are searching for a rental home–have any of our readers ever stayed in a rental you would recommend in the Outer Banks? Do any of you have a favorite area?? We are favoring the southern area of the OB’s as we understand it’s much less crowded???
