Current temp: 80 Wind E25
Talk about a blow, this is the fourth day and forecast to not let up until Friday. Off in the distance in those pics you can see the reef. Inside the reef the waves are six feet of better, more than I would like to venture out in. The tanker ship which brings diesel fuel to the power company has been tied to the government dock for the last four days. When he doesn’t go out you know it’s bad.
This is one reason when you plan a trip here you want to give yourself as many days as possible. There are a few places you can go up the creek and get on a lee side but you are very limited esecially when the wind is blowing this strong.
I have not made a conch salad for quite some time now. I got too much flac from all the girlies who whined about it being way too hot. When I make it and add the goat pepper, I figure if a little is good, then more is better. I will admit that last batch was a bit warm and even had the Montana boys wimpering a bit. If you noticed Hank was bitching like crazy about it being too hot but he ate a big bowl. The sweat was streaming down his face but he kept eating.
Frank corrected Chuck’s comment on the Big Hole ice conditions. He said around his place at Troutfitters it is still iced up and that Chuck needs new glasses. I would assume though that from Wise River down stream it is all open.
I also heard they closed Silver Bridge. Don’t know if it is temporary or if they are planning on building a new one. I don’t see anything wrong with the old one but a few minor repairs. Frank said he would try to find out the facts.
