The Weather Did A 180!The weather did a 180...going from the 90's down to 24 in the mornings for a few days as a British Columbia low barreled through. We're back on track for high 90's every day and no rain in site until fall. The brush and trees in the chaparral that surrounds us has a fuel moisture so low that any spark will set it ablaze and roar up the canyon. Going to be a very tough year for wild fires and this is the last year I will be responding with a federal Fire management team and going around the country. With the restrictions on our movement when we are on two hour, it's tough to get into the back country.
Here's a shot of the deville in the front yard with the pond and waterfall in the foreground. We're thinking of having a permanent "camp" right there and use the trailer as a guest room.
|The cactus are blooming and the hummingbirds are back in force. Next...coveys of baby Quail running around the place.|
Next up is taking the tin off and rebuilding the front end Birch and supporting wood.
