Good morning,

Round two of “please vote for me” Click through to this Grant Myrdal photo gallery and scroll over the photo of me (red helmet, brown gloves, big happy smile) and click on the green thumbs up. I could win a new pair of skis, and I sure need them! Thank you, and please share via Facebook and other social networking. It’s going to take a lot of votes to win.

Oh yes. Another lovely day. With thunderstorms in the forecast tomorrow, we should have a stunning sunrise tomorrow and Tuesday and a gorgeous sunset Monday night. Make sure your camera is charged!

First off, a million thanks to the 62 of you who showed up to work on the Whoopdee trail yesterday. I think Steve was relieved and thrilled to have such a big turnout. Thanks also to Jeff and his crew for their work moving logs from Seven Streams. There are only a couple of logs still down on the trail (and many muddy patches). However, Toilet Bowl is not open, and salvage operations are ongoing there. Please stay out. In addition, there are many trees down on 8-Track, so the riding is quite limited. Just keep that in mind. And… there’s a HRC sign at the bottom of Seven Streams saying the trail is closed. That said, I went running up there yesterday and ran into 15 or so very happy people out on the trail. Know that your hard work is appreciated.

On to the Mt. Hood forecast: The freezing level will be above 10,000 for the next three days, with SW wind in the 15-20 range. Tomorrow brings a pretty good chance of thunderstorms, starting around 11am and continuing through the afternoon and evening. Tuesday just looks sunny.

In Gorge wind news, we’ll have light easterlies today, switching to light west wind. Tomorrow starts off with light easterlies, swinging to the west and picking up to 17-20 in the afternoon. However, those thunderstorms are going to make windsurfing and kiting a bad idea tomorrow. Tuesday starts off with westerlies at 17-20, fading in the afternoon as an upper level low swings up the coast.

For events, you have the Waterfront Park weeding party today from 9am on and a CGORA ride at Pine Mont starting at 10am. Tomorrow night the film “Garbage Warrior” plays at Andrew’s. I just wanted to say “garbage warrior.”

Have a great day today!
