The Grind

Here’s An Update


The map for monitoring the West Entrance, Yellowstone National Park, air quality has its own page now, (click on the map to visit site.) The dots are a bit close together for easy “clicking” & we may move them. Approach the left dot from the left, and the right dot from the right, and you can probably get both pages. CURRENT OZONE & WEATHER DATACURRENT OZONE POLLUTANT & WEATHER DATA.

The boxes are working very well with the new boards and the telemetry is just about real time with the new clocks and chips. This should allow for staggered entrances for buses, diesel automobiles, snow coaches , and snowmobiles.


Got to fish yesterday afternoon. The snow was like a mist of rain: very small flakes, about the size of a pin point and just everywhere. There were a few Baetis in the air but no rising fish. I took a smallish rainbow on a size 8 soft hackle. The little fish looked like it was growing a moustache. I also had a big fish on the line, it jumped twice, ran far, jumped again and spit out the hook, I’d guess it might have gone a bit over 19″ but that’s just a guess.

Winter is making a point. The weather is heavy and the quick breezes are not biting, but they are brisk. I’m waiting for the first real snow to stick. Then we’ll calibrate and watch the results. Siting of sensors is still touchy. May need a whole new location for box two – we’ll see.
