Chat on the Deshler railcam indicated some heavy weather there Thursday afternoon - with damage in some areas of Ohio.  

Hopefully the severe weather will be out of it's system by the time I get there Saturday.  I've gotten slammed on three different visits.

Pretty much all packed - just a few things to gather and get loaded on the truck.

I believe there is some headed your way - lots of reds and yellows, though.

(normally - that could be a whole month's worth of rain out here .... Gotten 3" in 10 days in June so far ...we're almost giddy, but also aware that the snowmelt is just now kicking-in and Monsoon Season has not kicked-in yetConfused)

 

As green around here as I've ever seen it.

Mudchicken Nothing is worth taking the risk of losing a life over. Come home tonight in the same condition that you left home this morning in. Safety begins with ME.... cinscocom-west

Around here it is the middle Georgia rain forest.  trees hanging down every where especially over streets .  Every taller vehicle knocks limbs and leaves scratching their paint.  Cannot keep all my head knockers cut.

Lots of trains in Deshler this weekend.  Woke at 0200 to a train waiting to get out on the E/W from the SW wye as two westbounds raced each other (one on each track).  Before I fell back asleep, another train came 'round the SE wye...

It was cool to see 911 coming through town Friday.

Back to trainwatching.  Maybe I'll put the drone up again today.
