Well the lightning is out of our fire district. We have several burning in the Mountian Forests that I can see from my house. They will be bigger by morning. Lot of small one several miles from the house lightning started. One guy was hit by lightning and was transported to the hospital. Not sure how he is doing. Going to bed lots of work tomorrow.

forrest fires and lightning are a yearly threat
living in the mountains, i found that out in the
late 70s while living outside of snowmass,colo.
take care up there. i think one of your neighbors
to the east of you is posting on the easy chicken
message board, i am getting simular reports of
weather from you guys, plus some interesting rattlesnake encounters. below is what she has to say.
Our temps have been near 100* all week with a gentle breeze. We are still in the mid 90's but the wind had kicked up and is blowing everything everywhere. They are forecasting thunderstorms for the mountains with the possibility of us getting some over the weekend but with the way the wind kicked up we could get one at anytime. I can forecast the weather just about as good as those that get paid to do it around here. There are no ugly clouds yet but living in the middle of farm land it is hard to tell what is coming with all the dust blowing around in the wind. There seems to always be a haze in this area caused from the dust. Fortunately tornadoes are rare but they do happen. This state has had a few recently. This area had a very wet spring, not good for the hay farmers, lots of hay laying in the fields when the rain came. Some that I talked to said it was the worst they had every seen it. I could go for just enough rain to keep the dust down.
