Here comes summer...

Looks like a replay of last year. Winter lasted well into spring, then June comes and the switch gets flipped straight to summer. Runoff last year was HUGE with a below average snowpack. If the temps this week are as forecasted, this is going to be like a massive toilet getting flushed on us.

I was up in Fort Collins yesterday and took a ride up to Cameron Pass. The Poudre is a raging torrent already and there's still A LOT of snow up there above treeline.

the lake is probably half filled right now they drained so much off and Breck has no signs that it's melting you can't see any rocks in the bowls yet.

Trust me, after the winter we've had, you're not making anyone jealous. Shit, I never thought I'd say it, but I'm actually ready for some warm weather. Hell, there's enough snow to be able to ride well into July unless we just have a record breaking summer in terms of heat.

Most of Northern Idaho is under flooding alerts right now, parts of Montana as well. I'm bummed because with all this stupid snowpack that never melted, it's going to keep melting gradually well into Summer which means freezing cold water is constantly getting dumped into the lake - and cold ass lakes aren't much fun for swimming or boating. And I'm just not motivated enough to posthole 2000 vertical for a single line... I think I'd rather just go to Timberline in July/August

Now that I have the vehicle running, it's only 78. Feels a helluva lot hotter though!
