June 2022 - Summer Begins


Recommended Posts

The GFS is still outrageously cut-off with the NPAC trough next week. Not going verify anywhere close to reality with that.

It shows high 80s for the Willamette Valley 👀. I'm good with mid 70s.

I don’t know if anyone remembers the DGEX model back in the day, but the current GFS almost reminds me of that. 😂

Though at least the GFS’s silliness is predictable..DGEX was just an acid trip.

My impression of Billings is massive oil and gas refineries and it literally stinks.    And casinos in regular restaurants and gas stations.  Of course I think that is all of Montana... but always seems really odd to me.       

Ya gotta get off the freeway.  Take Hwy 1 in Drummond down along the Flint Creek through Phillipsburg aka P-burg (neat little town, the Sweet Palace has the widest candy selection I have ever seen, as well as awesome fudge.)  I have helped run cattle up the canyon just north of P-Burg, and my wife's uncle owns grazing lands in the canyon.  P-Burg also has a really good brewery.  Lots of small/medium working ranches between Drummond and P-burg.

From there it goes up through Georgetown Lake and on to Anaconda and back to I-90...absolutely beautiful, though to be honest, I think it is better to start on 1 in Anaconda and get back on the freeway in Drummond.  Beautiful views coming over the ridge and down into the valley by P-Burg

200 from Bonner Junction (just east of Missoula) runs up to Great Falls, and while Great Falls is nothing to write home about, the drive on 200 makes it worth it.

I also like the drive east out of Great Falls on 87 to 89 to 86 which dumps you off in Bozeman via the Bridgers.

There is also a route from Garrison through Helena that spits you out in Three Forks.

93 down through the Bitteroot valley is supposed to be beautiful, though I have never driven it.  The Ranch for TV show Yellowstone is actually in that valley.

 

The Freeway (Montana Autobahn) has lost a little of its luster since they bumped the speed limit up to 80 in places.  I managed to get a few triple digits runs down before learning from a MSP family friend that a lot of troopers don't like the new speed limit, and will actually cite people for going 1 mph over.  I also NEVER saw a speed trap on I-90 prior to the 80 mph speed limit.  Along these lines, the little towns and hamlets and backroads are notorious speed traps.

I saw some nice looking clouds over the Coast Range today. I also hope to hear some thunder this weekend, I don't remember the last time I did.

Yeah and the massive oil refineries are a no go for me. There are some nice areas that you don’t see from I90 but I don’t think I could ever live there.
 

Whitehall is a super cute little town! Again though, I’m not a big fan of semi-arid climates. They get less than half the amount of precipitation that Bozeman does. 

I'm fine with a semi-arid climate. I don't remember Whitehall. I'll have to look it up.

And to think January was the homecoming king in 1969.... so much promise.

You're probably right. Then he had his 10 year reunion in 1979. Before that he started exercising, lost some weight, and finished Alcoholics Anonymous. His resurgence was brief. Shortly thereafter he took a slide down the nearly vertical slope, and he has never recovered.😭😭

The forecast said it would hit 71F today, it did not.  It hit 63F but was noticeably muggy.  Overcast all day, no clear sunshine.  It started to sprinkle which became some random stray showers.  It is now cool, 57F. The sky was pretty much formless today except for defined clouds towards the mountains.

Rather dark, almost dreary.  It was never bright today.  Kind of odd lighting.

Never been there, my wife went there a lot as a kid to see her step-grandparents and hated it...mostly the town but she wasn't too fond of the grand parents either.  They chain smoked around the grand kids (this was back in the 70's when 2nd hand smoke wasn't harmful to kids).  My mother in law doesn't really have anything nice to say about Billings either. 

I occasionally threaten my wife with moving there just to get her riled up.  I occasionally like to take a walk on the wild side! 😁

Billings is like black licorice. People love it or hate it. There's really no in between. I like sagebrush, prairie, and cactus. So it appeals to me.

Some great discussion here today. Was fun catching up.

Looks like PDX missed their first 80 by a degree. 79/58 spread there. 78/55 here with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Some very cool clouds this evening, especially to the west.

Many spots should have another shot at 80 tomorrow before it cools down moving into Friday.

80 sounds splendid. I'll cross my fingers.🤞

Scenery wise it is different from Bozeman or Missoula for sure but it's kind of its own flavor. There are plenty of badland features in and around Billings, and the mountains aren't that far away.

There are quite a few places like that across the West. For instance some people think the Great Basin Desert is ugly, some people think it is beautiful. I generally fall into the latter camp but it really depends on where in the Great Basin you are.

Can’t stay indoors 24/7. And AC costs money..unaffordable to keep the house under 75 all day (especially now).

We usually crank the AC at night to take advantage of the lack of solar radiation and to sleep better. But during the day we have to set it around 76 or 77 to avoid a gargantuan electric bill.

You know Phil, you could move to WA where electricity is the cheapest in the nation. Sure you'll get less cool thunderstorms and no Derechos, but we won't hit 90 for at least a few more weeks.

True, it's trash or treasure. I really like the front range climate. Cold fronts are snappy. You don't get that too much in the PNW.

Nothing beats warm like growing up in SoCal in the 90s and early 2000s. Even with it over 100 we still had to go outside and play. 

I spent many a youth summer in Shafter. Typical days were 110, and my great grandparents had never heard of the concept of A/C in the 1990s.

Mostly clear with a low of 52 here.

GFS goes pretty crazy with the ridging next week the last few runs. Shoes close to our first 90 at face value. GEFS, Euro and EPS all look more muted though.

If my Covid symptoms would relax a bit I’d definitely head for the hills for this!  
Regardless of the virus it sure has been nice to sit on my patio early morning enjoying coffee and the birds singing.  Been quiet pleasant indeed.

I have literally never said any period is going to torch this year.    And I would bet serious money against any torching.      All I have said it that July-Sept will probably end up a little drier than average.    Maybe like 2011 or 2012.   And probably still a little cooler than normal... or maybe average at best.

I can't wait to get enough vacation time built back up to be able to take off and do stuff like this.  I am finally in a job that I think would be cool with me saying "hey I'm gonna take a couple of days off to storm chase."  I should have enough buffer built up by this fall to try to catch a fall storm from the deck of one of the ferries out of Anacortes. 

 

For today, I am stuck working.  I don't think we will see anything in my immediate area, but maybe mother nature will offer up a nice surprise to help me celebrate my 50th lap around the sun.
