Spring Showers Bring the Flowers!

Yes, we do need some rain for the flowers.  Although our red buds, cherry and pear trees and many flowers have already hit full bloom, we still need some rain.  Weather forecast pretty much on track, partly cloudy and mid 40s tomorrow, chance of showers Tuesday and mid 40s; mid 50s Wednesday and partly cloudy.  Back to chance of showers and upper 50s Thursday…good news Friday with partly cloudy and lower 60s and partly sunny and mid 60s on Saturday. 

Saturday, we did have no generation until about 1:00 p.m., as projected, with the equivalent of slighly under one generator for the balance of the day.  Today, the projection is for a low one generator all day.  Think the all day part is correct, but they are runnint just a little higher than one generator.  Tomorrow’s projection is for a low one generator all day.

Both Wednesday and Thursday, Jim had Clay and his younger brother, Tucker, on the water for half a day.  The boys had a good day on the primrose & pearl midge and a size 18 gray scud.  This time, they got to try their hand at pulling a size 12 sculpin bugger. 

True Grit! – Yesterday, Cathy, who is transferring from Nebraska to Virginia for a new assignment on the USS Harry Truman, spent half a day on the water with Gina.  Since is was lightening and thundering in the a.m., Cathy sat in on the fly tying clinic.  Around 11:30 a.m., they saw a clearing, so off to the water with hot coffee, hand warmers, and fly rod in hand.  Tough day on the water, thank you weather.  Got some mist and got some fish!  Fish were not too interested in midges, but took notice of the olive floozie and filoplume.  Yeah!  Good luck Cathy on your new assignment.
