Pete and I picnic at Fort Defiance a lot when we head south when riding.   NIce park.  We always sat at the point where the rivers meet.

It's under a ton of water as shown above.  :-(

Prepare for more. We had over an inch & a half rain again yesterday. The river where I camp is again at record height for this time of year again this morning. It just doesn't stop raining. No knee high corn around here. What was able to get planted is struggling to get ankle high. Sad.

The lakes take what they want also. The southern shore of Lake Ontario is still at historic high water marks, causing BILLIONS in damage. The International Joint Commission, which controls the out flow of the St. Lawrence River-the main drain of the Great Lakes-refuses to change the lower outflow limits they instituted in 2017, and want to create more "wetlands". They sure accomplished that.
 Our home is on the banks of the Oswego River, which flows into Lake Ontario. Fortunately, we're on high land, but have lost twenty to thirty feet of shoreline land since that plan was instituted.

It's been a tough summer all over.  Things are wet, soggy and flooding in the "lower 48," and Alaska is hot, dry and burning up.  It'll be a summer to remember, for sure.

Our access to I-55 finally opened up after being closed since 4/9.  I doubt it will stay open all year. The Meramec is going to be over it's bank most of the summer.  As Lou said it doesn't stop raining.  This week has been better but when we get rain we are getting it in large clips.

Bruce losing that much land, sucks.

We could sure use a little bit of that rain up here.  There are over 150 forest fires currently burning in Alaska!  Our area, south central Alaska is blanketed with heavy smoke.  It's bad enough, that everything gets a coating of what appears to be powder-like ash.  And the smell of smoke is very strong.  Meanwhile, there is a burn ban from Homer to Fairbanks, at least for campfires, and locally, there is a total burn ban.  In addition, we are getting notices from the weather people that this hot weather is causing unusual snow melt up high, and rivers are beginning to rise and could ultimately go over their banks.  Strange summer all over, it seems.
