illusion of progress...

Very nice sunrise this morning. First stop - reposition the IP cam. Next, decided it was time to start moving the roofing materials since they have been sitting in the same spot for months now. Re-stacked about 2/3rds of it into the greenhouse courtyard before it started warming up. Made a run to the mailboxes then chilled down in Pepino Land and logged 14 more orders - just in time as the tshirts and mailing envelopes arrived via UPS this afternoon. Some burrows came by around 4PM for a snack.

My plans for 241 burger night were foiled early today due to an ominous forecast. Storms all around me late this afternoon then the winds and a quick dust storm hit at 7:15PM. 40+mph gusts. Heavy rain and pea sized hail from 8 to 8:45. Not much fell on me but enough west of me to get the creeks flowing - pumped 2200 gallons into storage. Thank you... 73,98,64, .24", G

Not much rain here either, but lot of high wind. The old pole barn a few hundred feet east of the legion vanished. (it was there this morning) Seen any of it out your way?

FANTASTIC time lapse video neil! I had to watch it several times just to watch the clouds.
You're right JW...beautiful sunrise! Your photo of it is wonderful but I'm betting your live view was a lot prettier :o)

Love the raindrops evaporating as quickly as they fall near the end of the video!

Not pleasant to be there but the picture of the dust storm is awesome.

We got caught in that just south of Alpine - grapefruit sized hail left some pretty hefty dents in the truck roof! Thankfully most of it was only gumball sized...
