Greetings to All,
Think it will rain? Now hasn’t this been some go round of moisture, went from the driest year on record to one of the wettest in just a month. Doubt if we have to worry about fire bans this summer but then finding something that isn’t water logged to burn would be another matter.
Spoke with Mr. Javine up on Osage creek the other day, he is landlocked up on his hill and not sure when he’ll get out to the settlements, that area received some of the heaviest downpours as of recent.
I35 is about the boundary for the real heavy downpours, our neighbors in
As of the 29th Keystone Dam was releasing 80,000cfs with expectation of raising to 100,000cfs, as anyone in the Tulsa area and downstream knows anything above that magic number bad things happen.

Hopefully by 4th of July this monster cell will have dissipated, have enjoyed the crystal blue skies when it’s clear, the rain has washed all the crud away.
Read an article where this weather pattern has decreased the number of tornados due to the lack of the sun super heating the atmosphere. With all the available moisture to work with when the sun does come back in force things might get interesting in a different fashion.

BOOK REVIEW, finished two wonderful titles one of which is rather ironic to the current state of things in the region. David McCullough’s “The Johnstown Flood” Simon and Schuster a bit late considering our usual time period but Mr. McCullough just does such a fantastic job of telling a story so extremely well, I’ve enjoyed all his works, he produced yet another in this one.
As the New York Times stated: “A superb job, scholarly yet vivid, balanced yet incisive” that’s Yankee for “darn good book”
The other and you don’t need to be a dog person to enjoy is John Grogan’s “Marley and Me, Life and Love with the World’s Worst Dog” William Morrow (Harper Collins) publisher. It is a must read that ends somewhat sadly but with some very valuable life lessons, highly recommend this book.
In closing would like to quote from the above mentioned work by David McCullough that I felt rather compelling, “The danger of assuming that because people are in positions of responsibility they are behaving responsibly”
Read the book for the rest of the story!
