Mr. Kurtz, as you well know in your meanderings north rapid creek is boiling and south rapid creek is slathering, and whitewood creek is bleeding chemicals and all 3 forks of the bos elder creek are dry like the bones of a beast. Harding county isn't colored in your map and I submit to you sir that it is as dry as the beast itself. My point is, you gave no take and neither did I. What's your take, sir?

it's all about water and gonna get way worse before it gets any better, grudz; more dry lightning and scattered storms midweek.

keep your powder dry: you might need to snort it, ol' buddy.
