Here Is My Plan For A Rainy Memorial Day In Montana



Here is the model. We should start maybe the day after Memorial Day. OK? This is the most concentrated rain I've seen in thirty one years here in Billings. The creeks and rivers in the towns and low places all around us can't handle this much water so they are all overflowing. And there is still snow collecting in the mountains which has not started to melt. I think it will be dreadful further downstream as time goes along.



This is what the fields look like, or worse, between Billings and Laurel.  I stopped to take a picture and almost got stuck in the mud on the side of the road.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
