Two More Days of Heat, then more Seasonal Temperatures

What a crazy year it has been thus far. Really just goes to show who is in charge and it aint us!

With record breaking heat overwhelming our area and much of the west, a cold front will drop out of the north and bring our temps back under control. Saturday will bring clouds and wind ... there is even a chance of some rain. here is a look at the forecast for 11:00 am on Saturday:

Temps will not get out of the 60's on Saturday but will quickly recover to a very pleasant mid-70's through most of next week.

I would be remiss not to compliment my good friend Sven over at Unofficial Rose. If you have been keeping up with his posts, they have been a terrific combination of back country conditions, ski area openings and current events. Imagine the casinos being safe enough to open, but not Mt. Whitney?? Huh? I guess the virus lives well at 15,000 feet with average wind speeds of 30 mph. Who'd have thunk that?

Looking ahead to next winter; we are seeing pretty much neutral ENSO with a possibility of a weak La Nina. Of course that could change and really does not mean much. Most people believe La Nina means dry conditions and oftentimes that is the case. However, our wettest winter on record was a La Nina year where big storms can quickly spin up, stall out over Tahoe and we are back in POW heaven, so think positively.

A couple of things to consider; What few businesses are open need our help. I have been out to dinner 6 times since the King of Nevada allowed his peasants to open up their restaurants. However, the restaurants remain empty for the most part. I assume that people are scared. Time to grow a pair people! These businesses need our help and the risk is nearly zero unless you are over 65 with a pre-existing lung condition. If you are brave enough to go to Walmart, then you should be brave enough to go to any of our fine dining establishments and sit down and enjoy a meal.

Secondly, whether you lean left, lean right or consider yourself somebody who lives in the middle; remember how quickly our governors stripped us of our freedom. The establishment is loving this. They need to leave office and never return. In November we will be given the opportunity to do just that.

We live in a free country ... time to exercise our rights!

Stay tuned ...
