Today marks seven months since the last time it rained at TFL. Had a very close call this afternoon but only a 5 second burst of tiny/wind driven droplets. Pieced together newly purchased parts for some catchment on the north side just in case. Since this portion came together well - I can proceed to hook up the rest. New calf from the post 2 days ago came in for a visit with a crew. My friend JD brilliantly named it Ilford ....after the black&white printing paper I used to use back in photography school.
Had a peaceable kingdom event tonight with the longhorns and rabbits all having dinner together. 79,93,54,0,W
