Summit Up 8-15-12: Boring you with our lame weather stories

Summit Up
Special to the DailyThey're a little hard to see but holding up the SDN at the big motorcycle rally in Sturgis, S.D. Aug. 10 are Lisa and Tommy Yacono, who marked their first wedding anniversary at the event.

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that’s still drying out after that all-day gully washer Monday. Dang! We thought we was in the rain forest or Seattle or some such place. Pretty rare to see it rain all day long in Summit County like that. Although we do remember that one summer back in ’92 when …MILLIONS OF SUMMIT UP READERS: Really? Weather recollections? If we wanted to hear that kinda thing we’d go visit our Great Uncle Junior and activate his meteorological anecdote mechanism with a suitcase of PBR and some Funyons.SU: OK, point taken. Although we’ve heard Great Uncle Junior’s recollection of the Great Gully Washer of Aught 7 is quite fascinating, followed as it is by his parables of the swarm of locusts, the plague of boils and the basketball-sized hail that ensured Doomsday for all those who didn’t follow his particular flavor of Zoroastrianism.But we digress. From not, we’re not sure but here’s something completely different:An Angel Alert!! Angel Alert!! going out from Sean and Kathy Butson of Dillon, who write thusly:”Monday afternoon our house caught on fire in Dillon. Due to the extremely fast response from Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue and great neighbors like Jim and Bonnie Hamilton, however, what could have burned the entire house down ended up being only minimal exterior damage. Although their work often goes unnoticed, the men and women of LDFR should be commended for performing their jobs quickly and effectively. God bless Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue and the Hamiltons!”Wow, good to know that worked out OK for the Butsons! Many heapin’ helpings of good karma to the folks who helped them out. It’s good to know someone’s got your back when the house is a-burnin’!On that note, folks, we bid you a happy Wednesday and what have ya. We out.
