Wayne Riner Photograph Thoughts...
"A light evening breeze blows the valley fog across the divide and falls into Wakenva Hollow. On the horizon is a storm lit with the last sun of the day. All we can hear is the soft sounds 
of distant thunder."

August temperatures were below average and rainfall above average with no days reaching above 85 degrees in the City of Norton and the mid-upper 70s atop the High Knob Massif ( * ).

*Refers to official air temperature readings as any thermometer
exposed to sunlight would have read much hotter on any day.

"With an evening rain shower, the rainbow appeared with white clouds and blue sky." 

August rainfall totals reached 7.00" to 8.00"+ 
along the massif from Big Cherry Lake basin into headwaters of Bark Camp Lake, with local amounts under 5.00" reported along northern slopes 
in the City of Norton.
