Day off due to heat
Capped off last night with a very fine lightning show just NW of me. Got a sprinkle from 9:30 - 10:30PM. Checked the rain gauge this morning and it had .03" of rain and 5 dead bees. Kept a low profile and took a cue from Benita by today staying out of the heat. I reckon I'm just gonna have to get up early and get to work before it gets hot if I want to get anything done out here this summer. I thought I had given up having to roll out of bed early every morning to go to work.
My advance copy of Texas Monthly - July arrived in the mail today. Three good reasons to pick up this rag at the newsstand... 1. Great cover story about Ted Nugent with photos by my old friend Dan Winters. 2. Nice blurb about the Field Lab with the photo by my new friend James Evans... 3. And a piece rating the best and worst legislators - that's gotta hurt a little...
Pieced together this video of the storm last night - edited down from a 3 minute shot. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLcrfR2_LYs
