Low 50 - High 83. In and out of Alpine pretty quick this morning. Got re bar, range feed, bird seed, and beer. I think that covers the four major food groups for the Field Lab. Checked in with Bennett of http://www.alpinesolarsales.com/ His panel order should be arriving in about a week. He and his partner Eric from http://www.alpinefurniturestore.com/ are gearing up to start getting everyone out here hooked up on the solar bandwagon. With over 300 days per year of pure Texas sun shining here in paradise - it's a no-brainer. Keep an eye on these guys over the coming months as the business evolves. No PV yet but full systems coming soon.
Got home at 1PM and dove right in to mixin'n'pourin' concrete. Took 5 1/2 bags for each leg of container #3 as their forms where 17" tall. Nice breeze out of the east so hardly broke a sweat mixing up all that concrete by hand. Finished up and set my coins by 4PM. Passed over 118 to visit with David, Susan,Laurie, and Zuki. They are packing up tonight and heading back to Florida in the morning. Had just ONE Rum'n'Coke and came strait home. Beatrice and 7 others showed up for an early evening snack. They all hit the road north by 8PM to where ever it is they bed down at night. Lots of wind tonight so I will have to tap into some of that juice tomorrow.
