Just a good time to start the countdown.
Father's Day is just two days behind us, and I'm afraid I can't stand it any longer. I've got to start venting my impatience waiting for the duck season.
I know the very worst of this season's hot weather is still ahead of us, and I hate the heat, but I choose to keep my eye on what lies beyond it! Autumn!
Hey! Only six more weeks and the Big Desert general Elk season will begin here in E. Idaho. Not that I can imagine hunting big game in 90*+ temps (There is something to be said for the aesthetics of the true hunting seasons. Ya know?), but it surely is a sign of what is to follow!
So is pre-season NFL football that kicks off the first week of August. It's football for crying out loud, and that always heralds a coming change!
By the middle of the month here in E. Idaho, it still gets hot during the day, but it usually takes all day long to get there, and the evenings cool off soon enough to sleep well at night. On the average year we begin to get the occasional Monsoonal rains that come just often enough to clear and cool the air, breaking up the seemingly endless stretches of unbroken 90*+ days we see in July.
Now, if only we can hold out 'til August.....we'll have more good things to talk about then.
