Good afternoon, just stopping for a short visit, think I'll pass on the coffee, though.  It's raining or drizzling from time to time the past two days here in the great southwestern desert, enough to keep the streets wet and the eaves dripping - not too good for outdoor activities that are not of an urgent nature.    I am eternally glad that I don't have to put up with that nasty white stuff any longer, except for an occasional unusual event; at 2,500 ft elevation, we are some below the normal snow line in these parts, and even a freeze is rather uncommon in this valley.

Well, it is just about my nap time, so I think I'll wander that direction.

Later.

Afternoon all.

Rain is at a stop for a moment.  When it is here, it's been slushy.  Going over the hill to church we got white stuff on the car.

Morning all. 

No water falling from the sky yet.  Supposed to get 1/2 inch of rain, or up to 3 inches of the "other stuff."

I think I'm coming down with something, which is an inconvenience.  I haven't worked long enough to get a day off, either.

After waiting all day yesterday for stiff stuff from the sky, it finally started coming down around 1900.  Woke up to about 8” on the ground.  Going to get to try the repaired snow blower in a little while.  Thought I’d be nice and let the neighbors sleep in.  as the temp is going to be right about freezing for the next few days, I doubt the white blanet out there is going anywhere soon,

Didn’t see any coffee or water on, so I’ll get it going.  I’ll probably go for some hot chocolate when I get back in.  May lay a fire in the fireplace for later this afternoon, just to get things toasty in here.

I'm feeling better today, though my sinuses are definitely plugged.  That's okay, I guess.  I wasn't planning on any flights/mountain ascents. Roll Eyes

The magicians at NOAA are calling for a half inch of rain today, high of 45 with wind up to 10mph.

Sounds like a good time to stay indoors, Slim.

Our weather guessers weren't too far off today.  high of around 55 when the sun decided to peek around the clouds.  WInd gusted to around 10, and a bit of rain.  I took my 223 and went up to a clearing on the mountain with some coyote calls and tried my luck.  While I was up there, it started dumping white stuff on me with a vengeance.  I high-tailed it down to lower elevations, built a fire and ate lunch in a little shelter thing I built last month.   Not a bad excursion.

We were in the 40's today with some drizzle. Since I've been fighting the "Green apple quick step" for the last four weeks, I found out today how weak it's made me while helping my associate cut up several downed trees. Wiped me out pretty bad. Good thing he got called away during our lunch break, I didn't have to answer the bell for this afternoon. just sat the rest of the afternoon, but am feeling better now. I believe I've now got things solidified at least for now. Roll Eyes Tongue

Morning all.

Weather is 34, with a 1mph wind (if you can call one mile per hour a 'wind' )from the south.  The weather service has changed their minds four times in the past hour as to what today is going to bring, so I'm just going to stay inside, I think. Roll Eyes

For some reason, I ended up not sleeping much last night.  Kept waking up, so I'm going to the coffee pot for seconds.

Had light rain to start this morning. We finished getting the one pine tree we cut yesterday hauled out. Moved the axles that were on the two new homes that came in in the last couple weeks. Those things are heavy and awquard to handle. Having muddy lots didn't make it any easier too Roll Eyes Undecided
