cows like water...
Didn't realize till this morning that we had an overnight rainstorm at TFL. Would have missed it entirely except for the evidence on my solar panels this morning. Probably lasted about 30 seconds. Discovered today that it is not easy to transfer water to plants when one has over 50 thirsty longhorns milling about. Gave it up after I started pumping the first tank load. Will have to wait for the spring break longhorn crowd to loose interest before "mooving" on with this effort. Did 4 Field Lab tours today...very cool custom camping vehicle came by this afternoon occupied by the Texas McBeast family. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Texas-McBeast/123261863173 78,92,50,0,B
