almost a storm
I found that it should be pretty easy to schedule in some regular webcam time in the morning as long as I'm online checking out the daily news at sunrise - so stay tuned. For those of you who missed it - this mornings show featured breakfast with Benita. Got a bit of a surprise when I went to get bird seed this morning - a raccoon helping himself. Closed him in till I could get the camera - got one shot and off he went.
Nice cool morning so I shoveled 6 wheel barrow loads up to the east entrance and bucketed it up to fill the top 6 courses of cinder blocks on that end of the greenhouse. Quick break for ice tea at the GrubShack then back to pop an experimental blueberry cake in the solar oven - blueberries courtesy of Ugly Betty and Lynn. Cooked for about 45min then the clouds rolled in. Had to finish it off in the propane grill. Started to sprinkle as I was trying to finish stacking block so I shut down for the day.
The clouds rolling in were backed my a nice looking storm. I was sure that the Field Lab would get hammered with rain but only ended up with .17" and lots of nice lightning and thunder.
