Some Good, Some Bad

Bad: The King Fire has passed 95,000 acres.

Good: It's 43% contained.

Good: It rained all over the fire.

Good: It rained all over here too.

Bad: Not enough to make any difference.

Bad: National Weather Service says at least 3 more months of drought.

Good: Went fishing. The local weather guesser said it wasn't supposed to rain over in Alpine County where Upper Blue Lake is located.

Good: It didn't rain in Alpine County.

Bad: Nobody said anything about wind over there.

Bad: Windy and cold. Welcome to Fall.

Bad: Got skunked unless you count the duck I caught.

Good: Duck released from being tangled in my fishing line unharmed.

Bad: He pecked the crap out of my hand.

As Porky Pig would say, That's, that's, that's all folks. 

Windy and cold

Cloudy, windy, and cold

Waves, windy, and cold

Still windy and cold.
Think I'll have a cup of tea.


  1. Mark, sometimes you can't win for losing. Glad you got a little rain. Sorry you didn't catch any fish.

    I can't believed in rain out there---I heard on the news they caught the guy that started the fire that is burning now--

  3. Good -- Bad, what a great format. Glad you had so many goods. And, again, I always learn something on your blog, like don't ever catch a duck...

  4. Good to know you got some rain.
    Bad to hear the weather was cold and windy.
    Good you saved the duck.
    Bad the duck pecked the crap out of your hand.
    Good the duck didn't crap all over you, period!

    1. Not yet, Yuki. Keep your fingers crossed. Maybe soon.

  6. Good points all.
    Love the term "weather guesser"

  7. 43% contained is great though. I hope they put that fire out soon.
