Threats of thunderstorms all day but only got a spinkle again....was able to get out during a cloudy period and dig two more holes and pour concrete for the final 2 guy wire anchors for wind turbine mount #4. Checked in at the Ranch Supply Store with my friend Julie and she requested a Pepino Swamp Cooler for her RV. She and her husband Whitebear have been spending up to $400 per month on propane for their generator to power their air conditioner. My swamp cooler design works without a generator using only a small amount of battery power from a solar charged power system and will keep their habitat just as cool.
Spent the late afternoon preparing a batch of flour tortilla mix...cooked up 9 tortillas for the next couple of dinners. How often do folks in the "real world" have time to devote 2 hours of their day to do this - and then have the time to photograph the results with a rainbow in the background? Thats why I'm here!
