And yeah, my old name was "RommelMagic". I love my avatar.


That's right, how you been?

I love the mountain air that moves in, but it really doesn't cool the place down as much as I'd like. I don't have a single window in this place that can accommodate an A/C unit, but I'm not far from getting a sheet of plywood & starting to get creative. The width is still going to be an issue, but maybe a smaller unit might fit. Of course this is Montana & it was still snowing in early June & winter will probably start working it's way back in another 6-8 weeks anyhow.


I've been well, thanks. I really need to get some brewing done. This heat has been keeping me from doing so, as well as life in general. It's gonna be a bitch since the tap water is getting into the mid 70s. I'll have to rig some sort of ice bath for chilling. Luckily I have a 7 port cold plate I got for really cheap that I'll have to find a use for.

I am actually looking forward to clearing snow and driving on ice. However, with the drought, I have not had to mow my lawn in 2 months, because it is now DIRT!
Looking at the corn crop around here, boys buy all the meat you can store. The price is going to sky rocket. Most of the fields of corn here are 2 feet tall and fully tasseled out, without pollinated ears. Animal feed is already so high, farmers here are selling off their herds.
Wife went to buy a roast for Sunday dinner, 25$ for a center cut roast!

I hear ya there, I've been eating a lot more rice so I can still feed all the meat to my cat. Luckily the prices haven't gone up too badly here... yet. But I've got a couple beef shoulders in the freezer & I'm starting to plan out where I can get my elk this year. With the way the foothills are looking, I'm not too sure how high up I'm going to have to go to find them. We've even got fishing bans going on since the water's too hot for the trout & the populations aren't looking good. More like "A Trickle Runs Halfway Across It." With the minimal, unstable snowpack, the Gallatin & Madison raged muddy brown for a couple weeks and then dropped like a stone. Yellowstone even stepped up last week with more bans inside park boundaries. Not good.

What do you know? A year later and the same thing. It's december 4 and it was 74 degrees today. Thunderstorm expected in the next few hours. I have had to turn on my bug zapper.
