Yet another torrential downpour just a few hours ago; the Mettowee must look like chocolate milk about now.

Just when it seemed like the water was coming down a bit, another storm sweeps through and the water is rushing like crazy again. And I heard Thunder on the way over to Scotties so …here we go again.

This is not helping area golfers much. I got out Sunday for nine holes and that was nearly the extent of the good weather. The best day for it looked to be Saturday, most of the Rick’s Ride bikers came back within red faces from the sun. Some of the courses must have dried out a bit. Milestone was nice even if every low-lying area was full of water and you had to watch where you stepped.

Too many days off the course though, I was not consistent. Started off good and then it all went south in the last few holes. I’m getting the hang of that course now, especially knowing that I can go way left off the ninth tee and still be in position for a shot at the green – just from the second fairway.

More later?
