The huge storm that hit Lajitas HARD just sprinkled on the Field Lab last night. Heard sketchy reports of some blown off roofs and flooding. I only got .21" and just some 35mph gusts. Glued to the Doppler radar last night and was sure I'd be pumpin' water out of the creek but no luck. This vehicle for sale down by Bee Mountain Hardware had its top peeled off - bet the asking price will go down.
Stacked more block and fetched more sand today. Only worked about two hours what with a lunch break and a trip down to Study Butte to stock up in case of more rain before I get to Alpine next week. Had to free up the outside truss with a quick sturdy stand so I could use the scaffold back inside the courtyard. Finished off the east wall and now ready to build forms for the concrete cap that will top it off.
Decided on the webcam to buy for my future live feed. http://www.stardot.com/netcamxl/index.html Will be sending that video to the fieldlab dot org site but will still use the stickam.com site for live interactive video from time to time. Two live feeds for the price of one! For now I am broadcasting live from about 7:30 to 9AM for the sunrise and the Breakfast with Benita show at http://www.thefieldlab.org/webcam.html 86,97,63,0
Don't forget to tune in tomorrow morning by 7AM eastern time to catch the NASA moon impact vehicles. http://www.nasa.gov/externalflash/lcross-centaur-separation/
