It has been very warm here the past several days. This led to a massive midge hatch. They love the BARC, for some reason, and pretty much cover the building when they are out. Fortunately each hatch only lasts a few days.
The heat really pushed things along in the TundraGarden. Everything was blooming at once.
It was so hot for several days that the woolly louseworts were starting to fade almost as soon as they started. I was away for several days and missed the peak of their bloom this year.
Naturally, all that hot weather brought a thunderstorm, even in Barrow.
I didn’t stay out to take pictures of the thunderstorm or the rainbow after, but it rained very hard. It has been a bit cooler since. In fact we’ve been the cold spot in the state…
