The Hobo Camp Fire Is going well #VIII.. Stop In!!!
Good morning all, we usually don't talk about the heat index here, humidity is usually so low that it's the same as the actual temp. We do have a break though, temps below 110 for the next week or so. I still need to change weather apps, the one I'm using is usually far off the actual, that includes past historical data. Still debating about getting the van washed. If I use the MS Win 10 app, I'm good for a week, if I listen to others, we have a good chance of rain this weekend.

I should have some time today to work on my layout. Wiring the control panel should take some time, and I really won't need it for a while, just that it's something that I can do sitting down, and that's a good thing.... 2285_

Good morning everyone, no so hot here after hearing how a lot of the rest of the country is getting. Our actual temps are in the low 100's right now with low humidity (remember, it's a dry heat), while if you add in humidity, the heat index elsewhere is a bit higher than that. We're use to it, a lot of folks back east aren't.

Jim, we used to have a cat (or two), do that in our backyard. No, we never owned a cat, just that someone's somehow liked our backyard. When we lived in Wickenburg, cats were never a problem, too many coyotes around.

Got another large wildfire started just south of Prescott. One small town of Pine Flats has been evacuated. The town of Dewey, where Ray M. lives is just a bit to the north of the fire. He's probably getting a lot of smoke right now as the fire grows to the north. The other big fire just east of us is now contained and has been burning for well over a month. It's still not out, just contained.

Hot for us. 83 now going to 94, tomorrow 97. 100 is rare but it does happen. Heat index will top a 100.
I did see a few things in the new Lionel catalog excluding their very expensive door stops.

Greetings, gang.

It's a balmy 81 degrees with a soggy 16% humidity in Las Vegas this morning.

It has been a spectacular trip so far. First stop was Monday with my niece and her family at Bailey Yard. It has to be seen to be believed. Very typical of the UP though. Bigger is better. Coming down the west side of the Rockies I was getting over 40 mpg according to my dashboard. Glenwood Canyon is also pretty spectacular but the pull offs the recommend for "scenic views" is somewhat lame. One Wed morning I toured the Colorado National Monument. Why there isn't a steady stream of traffic through there is beyond me. I was chatting with the (cute young) Park Ranger who said they were pretty much hidden in plain sight. Only 10 minutes from downtown Grand Junction. Yesterday morning I went through the Valley of Fire near Overton, NV. Very impressive. In the afternoon I toured Hoover Dam. Very crowded but worth the trip. This morning I'm headed to downtown Las Vegas to see their historic district. Then it's off to LA for the weekend.

Frank - thank your for thinking of me.

Don - I'll wave and maybe even holler to you.

All stay safe (and cool).
