LIT, don't know if you've seen this, but two weeks ago the place was almost dead.

It's still morning here in the West, and that coffee is tasty, thankee mucho.

Good to hear from you LIT and Scattered Thumbs.

I managed to get through the fourth without going out and causing any mayhem.  Starting on Friday, our neck of this valley sounded like a war zone every day; as early as nine in the morning, some enthusiastic soul would start shooting shells off, you know, the kind you see in the big fireworks shows?  BOOM - --- -- - BLAM - SPUTTER-POP.  And so it went until about ten or twelve at night; people on the next street would get cranked up late afternoon, and continue --------------- .  Now, I've been around enough stuff that blew up without me being in control to make me jumpy, and by Monday night, I was tired, real tired.  Glad it's over.  No company, just me, Mrs. Hairy, and the critters both of whom resided in my lap or hers when they could.

Weather is summery, here.   Huh Huh Grin Grin Cool

Y'all have a good day.

Later.

Howdy y'all.

How are y'all likin' the heat?  Highs here have been around 100.  Lows in the 60s.

Anyway, I'm on the hunt for a new job.  The town just isn't big enough to support five employees at a gun store, so my being the youngest worker, I was laid off.  That's okay, though.  It gives me a chance to do more things.  Like find a real job.   Roll Eyes  I think I may have one lined up over in Nevada, so I'll let y'all know how that goes.

Uh, sorry, Roo.  Did I miss anyone else?

Weather; a subject of some serious consternation amongst some folks.  My Baby Bro is an Air Force trained "Weather Observer", and also of an extremely liberal political bent; swears that the changes in the weather are all mans fault, that there were never the sorts of patterns and changes that we are seeing now, since records have been kept. I asked him "what about before records were kept?", and he said that didn't matter.  We tend to disagree on a lot of things.   Tongue  It's warm here, been in the mid to high 1-0-somethings the past several weeks, with a few excursions into 1-1-? something HOT LAND; some days have scattered clouds, but others, like today are bluebirdy days, breezy, relatively dry, and mostly tolerable.  I feel for you folks who have that high humidity; we think we have it rough here when the Rh gets into the 20s, and "monsoon season, usually from about August to October is a time of discomfort for us Desert Rats; it has come early this year, I hope it goes away early, too.

I remember my six months in Memphis in 1960; arrived at midnight on July 8, and departed at about the same time on December 22.  The night I got off of the bus, it was about 85 or 90, and the air was WET.  I had just come from the Southern California Desert, across through the dry southwest, and the trip had been relatively dry until we got into Arkansas.  I was seventeen, and had never experienced humidity like that; it took some adapting, and the first night I was on base in the barracks, I woke up in the wee hours thinking I had wet myself and my rack, I was sweating so; but I managed.  When I left, the train pulled out at almost exactly midnight, the weather was cold and spitting snow.  I got a couple of weeks leave, so I stopped at home before heading on to San Diego for duty.  Got off of the train in Palm Springs - the Palm Springs railroad station was, still is out in the boonies several miles from town - and the weather was DRY, the sky was marvelously black and clear and so full of stars it looked like a carpet, it was cold and windy, about 25 degrees.  I actually wept.  Then I hitched a ride with the U.S. Mail haul contractor and rode the hundred miles home with him.  At eighteen, I figured out that I am a true Desert Rat, and have never ventured very far from The Great Southwestern Deserts since.  I do not like humidity, you may keep it.  Grin

Well, I got a late start this morning, and the day is scooting on by, so I think I'll go find something useful to do.

Later.

I'm use to it (HUMIDITY) Just got back from Evansville Ind. NCOWS National,  temps the week before were in the 70's
by the event they were 96's but the humidity was in the low 30's ...
My pard John & I were acclimated to high humidity so we had no issue, it was hot, sure...  but easy tolerable.

My experience with  desert SW is when I stayed in Tucson AZ  100 degrees and very little humidity , made my nose bleed  some
and a stoll across a carpeted room would static shock the HELL out of me when I reach for the sliding door...
got me so many time I lost count....made me mad as hell too.... I'd just forget, and zang  it'd get me again !  Embarrassed
I don't miss that at all !

Not too bad here at the moment, low 90s, some humidity, but not too uncomfortable (for me). Rain again this morning, usual for the 4th of July week around here, seems to rain more often than not around the holiday. Heading up toward Nebraska in a few minutes to pick up the formerly broken Blazer. Stopped on the way home at the LGS, scored a 5lb jug of Trailboss. So I'm set for that for a while. Still plan on stocking up more on components, for the next few months. My crystal ball says there may be shortages again about the end of the year.....

A fresh pot is ready....get you some if you on'to.
Hot today, and humid.  No surprise.
Should get off work shortly...going to stay out of the heat.  Have several projects going, so I'll work on them in the air conditioned environment.

Iced Tea on me, gents.

We're in for a doozy of a thunder storm it looks like.  Dark clouds all the way around the valley, humidity at about 90%, wind blowing at about 10mph constantly and gusting up to 30mph+.  We're already dry as a bone, so any lightening will certainly spark some fires.   

The chickens are already roosted at 3:30pm and the deer have taken cover under the trees in the front yard.  I'll let y'all know how we fare.
