Bust out the oars!
Good day, readers. As you can imagine, yesterday was a genuine gully-washer not only on the mountain, but throughout the region. Mt. LeConte tallied 2.5" of rainfall on Monday, the bulk of which came during the night. We're just a week into the month, and already we've kicked last August's rain total to the curb (currently 4.25"). With this last deluge, we've also emphatically crossed the 60" mark for total rainfall/snow melt this year. Temperatures seldom wavered yesterday, as our high was a mild 57, followed by a nearby low of 53. The sun is fighting to break through this afternoon as the front pushes east, but more rain is dominating the extended forecast. Stay dry out there, friends!
The crew has been on a hot streak of late when it comes to gathering for a "game night." It's been something different every evening so far, but last night's festivities included a couple hours of "Traveling Pictionary" over popcorn. Needless to say, with this group's sense of humor and creativity, it didn't take long to get every one of us giggling grandly. The above is an example, appropriate for anyone and everyone who may stumble upon today's blog entry, in which those of us participating did a remarkable job of staying close to the first person's original theme. The same can't be said for most of the other story lines that unfolded as the papers were passed around. I wonder if tonight's gaming will bring about a repeat performance or something new!
Take care and have a great day.
