The state fair is a week away which means it's raining nonstop. Folks even refer to August spells of rain as "Fair Weather." After a beautiful and dry summer, the party is over. Not to worry, as we have trains on top of trains to dig into. They really never get old.
I was able to squeeze in an overnight trip into the Chugach State Park last Saturday and it was a bit soggy in the end, though a sunny Saturday made it all worthwhile. The snow will be here sooner than we expect, so a little rain is fine.
After a very busy summer, our household is just as quiet as could be. No complaints about that. We're happy to just enjoy our trucks, trains, and cars.
