Elle,Crosby and Phoebe set out to check on the current status of the Allegheny River along Seybertown Road this morning 20 July 2021. Here is what they have to report and video and photo. If you haven’t been watching Allegheny Outfitters upriver regarding emergency rescues or Kinzua gauges you may want to start following both areas. It appears this crazy rain event that started last Monday really added a lot of moisture to the watershed. Based on what I’ve been […]
All types of things are coming down the Allegheny today due to the high water that has been flowing. This tree actually made LESLIE think of the Loch Ness Monster. What do you think? Today has been a full day of dock work: pull it in and pull it in more with some aid to the neighbors as the river keeps rising. Today was a great day for futsal in the gym. Coach Dave. After the first week of futsal […]
Heat dome in the west, hurricanes in the gulf, rivers rising with the northeast rains. Say what you may about science but here’s a picture. Guess which one is Mondays versus Wednesday if you live in Pittsburgh you know. Duke even received a mouth full of water jumping and not realizing how deep the short became with all the leaves.

Here’s a little Fourth of July photo dump. We hopefully have pulled a new generation of river rats into Knee boarding and tubing. Phoebe and Crosby are still good with just trails. They are not yet ready to swim as sisters, Phoebe tried the life jacket and an assisted doggie paddle, but didn’t enjoy the muck. This time they were able to explore the Phillipston portion of the Armstrong trail.

We found a new water dog for our #rileysriverrat dog pound. Doc, Sarah and Aiden came up for a day on the Allegheny. There were some tubing cherries popped. We learned what decomposing leaves smell like when you step in them and why we need to swim in the river seaweed instead. Linds received a nice love bite from the water. The grill returned to full function with kale and beet greens sautéed, lamb & grass fed beef burgers, roasted […]
Current count is three! Thanks to this long Canada Day and United States Independence Day we all should be thinking of spending our work week during this holiday from our favorite places. Why would you want to drive to and from when your COVID mobility still exists? Take this week to learn a new skill and spend time with those you love. This is for the up and coming executive. It is better than the corner office as it comes […]
Just doing a quick reflection on the mileage from the past few weekends. If you looked at my move and mileage on the activity tracking watch, you’d possibly think I was doing 1/2 marathon prep. Instead, I’m just patrolling the soccer field with either flags, electronic whistle or my FOX-40 micro. The pandemic impacted soccer on so many levels. The Premier League, Europa, MLS and Pennsylvania youth/amateur soccer. The Spring 2020 season was cut short after the first official weekend […]
