It occurred to me last night that perhaps I inspired the dung beetle appearance by my rolling that big black tank down to the dam yesterday morning. Maybe not.... I didn't write anything yesterday because I fell asleep waiting for the Lot'o'Water video to upload to YouTube. Woke up at 11:40 with just enough time to get the links and photos posted.
Day two of being swamped in went nice and slow. Benita came by to hang out all day and keep me company. Took a go kart ride in the afternoon to check the condition of the road. The mile and a half from the Field Lab is good to go except for the final stretch to Capt. Kirk's turnoff. It's parts of the last mile from there to the HWY that usually is the worst and I haven't even gotten a look at it yet. Mostly sunny skies with a high of 98 with humidity at 9% - that should make all of the road good to go by tomorrow noonish. Need to get out soon because I'm running dangerously low on refrigerant.
Finally topped off the new 3000 gallon tank late in the day. I'm afraid the pool is closed until next storm.
When I talked to Chuck yesterday, he mentioned he was going to be having pizza for dinner. I started thinking pizza would be an excellent Field Lab dinner tonight and luckily I had all the parts to build one....
