Oregon State Dept. of Forestry just announced red-flag fire alert and the official beginning of fire season for NE Oregon. I haven't checked USFS Wallowa-Whitman NF yet, but it looks like a bleak year for dispersed camping.

It's the second week in June....

We could use a break from the rain here... Luckily this week has been drier than was anticipated.

The western slope in Colorado is in a severe drought as are other western states. We were up in Wyoming last weekend and though the area we traveled through was still a bit green, I can tell things were starting to dry out. And like Timm said, it’s only the second week in June! Too hot, too soon!

Its been off and on rain and humid heat. It's been humid enough that when you touch things, it leaves a damp streak.

We're pretty dry here on Vancouver Island too.

The city of Victoria had a record low amount of rain in April.

We got a little bit of rain the last couple of nights, which will probably just serve to convince folks that the fire hazard has passed when it hasn't.

But maybe enough for one last chance at morels this season....

Nice trout! Browns in the Golden Trout wilderness?

Been pouring down here since yesterday. For a couple days before that we just had mist. What we have now is the kind of soaking we usually get in N. ID in the spring (well before June).

We had a wet for us May so temps were below normal, in the 80’s. The rains dried up over a week ago so it’s back to our normal 100+ days.

This is below the fish diversion dam, but talked to a guy that said browns are above dam also.

Cook Quick No.12 Okeeff & Merritt Los Angeles. T. Marsh dates it mid 1920's-early 30's 16x9x4 inches lid acts as extra tray, no side wings and 'happy face' burner. Very much like kampkook No 3.
Catch and release fishing. Get camera ready when fish is still in water, quick toss to bank for picture then release to catch again.

Daryl,

Those svea123’s are real gems. I love both of mine.
For those of you experiencing a drought,
I’d be more then happy to share. We have had 2” in the last two days. It has rained here for the last 6 days now. It’s time for a break.

An inch would be real helpful around here. What's it cost to ship a few thousand acre-feet to 97828 through USPS?

That pop up storm dropped 1.60" on us. Not sure I have a container that USPS would accept. Sorry.

Looking at Lake Oroville and they are pulling the boats out or they get stuck in the mud. California is drying up.

Back following our infamous Blizzard of 1977 in Buffalo they got rid of a lot of the huge snow piles by loading it into empty rail gondolas that were headed to warmer climes to melt. Too bad something like that couldn't be done right now.

i will just show up with paint, a roller, a brush and a ladder, drought over. every time i paint ,a half hour later it rains. doing the lower trim on my house. now if i garden or plant something then i get drought conditions. maybe i will paint first and garden later in the day and get a happy medium.

We found an equally effective trick. After a week of 90+ degree weather, the powers that be decided that the tent city and porch shelters at the pub needed to come down. Since then, it's been highs in 50s-60s, windy and drizzly. Not the best conditions to enjoy an ale and a meal while siting outside at a picnic table.

OTOH, while it isn't enough precip to break the drought--or likely even bring up that last rush of morels--it was enough to allow the firefighters to get a handle on the two large fires in the north end of the county.

Very hot and very dry here in Wisconsin. Like July/August weather. The farmers are worried. But I guess farmers are always worried.

Poor farmers in Arkansas are under water. Feast or famine as they say.
