July? We are happy it’s over!

We’ve been fighting the weather this whole summer. July really wasn’t much of a summer month. I don’t think we even hit temperatures that came close to seasonal. Yesterday morning we could see our breath. The month of July has been more like Sept or early Oct. No sun tans among our crew. I am wearing a sweat shirt and rain jacket again today.
Yesterday the weather prevented us from getting all our groups moved and today we awoke to more of the same. Needless to say we are tired of rain, and fog… and cold. I have to give credit to our pilots however. Safety is our first priority and if we need to set down to let the bad weather pass; so be it. We have done a lot of sitting and setting down.
I’ve noticed that Alaska and the Yukon Territory have been having warmer weather than we’ve had this month.
Let’s hope August is a little more seasonal weather wise.

ps. The fishing has been good; the fish don’t care about a little water; in fact I hear they like it.
