    Yellow Grass streets are named after plants:
    Clover, Millet. Brome, Alsike, Rye (~~ whisky ?).

    July 5 is a bit early in summer for the hottest temperatures. Still, weather is what you get.

    Also, note the blue and green (lower temps) from the OR, WA, & BC coast into the Cascades and northern Rockies.
    We knew some folks (recently deceased) that walked (emigrated) across the Alberta/USA border back then. The U.S. was building dams, such as Grand Coulee, and they felt their future was in central Washington State rather than the Canadian Prairies. He worked on 7 of the big dams, then moved on to a farm/ranch.

    My Grandfather, Sandy, homesteaded in 1900 south of Moose Jaw. Started with a sod hut, called a “soddy”. And after doing well in the 1920s, suffered through the 1930s and 1940s.

      First chuckle of the morning. :-) Something is very wrong with Arctic ice, instead of melting as ordered by UN/IPCC, it captured the ship with Climate Change Warriors.

      I wonder if this ordeal will impact any of these hardcore warriors’ sensibilities and their zest for global warming activism in the future. Disillusionment and all that rot.

        Had to be saved by helicopters? That’s not taking one for the team. Not even one of them felt the need to sacrifice themselves to save the planet? Shame! Shame! Shame…
