Life off the grid in the SW Texas desert. An experiment in sustainable living. NUMBERS AT THE END OF EACH BLOG POST: temp at 8PM,high temp,low temp,rainfall,wind conditions(CalmBreezyWindyGusty).
Glad to see that you got your share of much needed rainfall, even hail!!!Your creek looks deep like the much coveted "swimming hole" thanks to your engineering skills.
Aw yes, ye ole Tumble Bug. Or, as us kids way back in grade school called them "Sh*t Bugs". Spent plenty time watching those critters tumble that crap all over the place. Thank God I was not born a tumble bug!Good to see you got all that rain. I know that made your day.Have not watched the videos yet but, on my way there now.Your wind mills look great! Plenty power to ya John. Take care.
LOL John, The solitude of the desert does such wonderful things to a sound mind. You ARE of sound mind ...right? I remember back many years when I also spent countless hours watching "turd rollers" for hours on end before head'n off to the swim hole to clear my foggy mind. Following your blog....what I do every day...refreshes my memory of by-gone days and gives me an energetic feeling. If only those energetic feelings could be turned into something more productive.Was a grand sight to see the creek full up and run'n over. Very nice video. How did the new pump work out? I suppose the roads got their share of erosion. Sure wish I was there to see.
JohnThank you so much for posting the video of the waterfall on the eastern cliff. I had remarked to you about it when Aunt Kathy and I were there to visit one time and it is so nice to see it in action. Thank you againGiniV
Thanks for keeping this Texan tuned in. I love following your adventures...and spectacular pics.
Funny what a little water will do to some folks!
John,, all that run off water, glad you got it. Have you never figured out a way to filter it and use it for human consumption? Seems to me there should be some simple way to filter it and then a simple test for bacteria for human use.
Looks like a bigger pond behind your dam might be in order. Ought to get a backhoe out there and make short work of it.
These film clips of the water torrents are amazing. I know about flash floods but to see so much flowing water in such an arid place is neat. You would think that it would be soaked up like a sponge as soon as each drop hit the earth,
Holy cow, look at those biceps. I mean, er um, nice pool....
