the end of winter?
Beautiful day today...hope that was the last blast of winter. A great sunny outside to work in. Got a better amount of steel up in the air today. It all began as I checked my journal from last year on this date. 365 days ago, the sun rose over the mountain east of me at exactly 8:22:50 AM (according to the atomic clock in my weather station). Having found that information just in time - I watched as the sun peaked over the hill at exactly the same time as it did last year. Pretty spectacular to see the world work so precisely. Will be pointing the live streaming video cam at the hill tomorrow. Tune in at www.stickam.com/thefieldlab to see it happen Sunday morning at exactly 8:22:25AM central time.
Got a good bit of welding in this morning up until my 1:30 lunch break. Quick snack then got another hour in before the most recent Field Lab tour. Dona Lu and Wanda (mother/daughter team) came by after viewing some land SW of me. Looks like I might have another part time neighbor. Usually when I meet folks coming to this area to look for land, my immediate impression is they don't have a chance of making it out here. DL on the other hand left no doubt in my mind that she could easily make a go of it. Kind of refreshing for a change. 50,69,26,0
