HOT

Prepped for the hottest day of the season so far.  Cranked up the PepinoII and chilled the house down to 61.9 this morning.  Running the swamp cooler all day, it only made it up to 82.8 inside twelve hours later with a high of 110 outside.
 











Had a visit this morning from the Mahanays.  They tried to come out for a visit just one year and a day ago but my road was too swampy because of rain so I met them at the GrubShack.  Glad they finally made it out to the Field Lab for the official tour.  Got a mug from them with an award winning photo they shot during last years visit.

Benita just passed the 1,400 fans mark on Facebook today.  Haven't seen her granddaughter Penelope for a couple of months but she just happened to come in today with her momma Beatrice.  I think they knew this was a special day for gramma.  Penelope laid claim to the food bowl right away.









It's been 6 months since I last checked on my battery systems.  Only had to add a little water but I think it's time for a cleaning overhaul.  101,110,66,0,B

JW. Are the wind gennies still working well or have you switched total solar panel?

I believe the wind power self destructed some time ago.

2 turbines got destroyed...2 are tucked away in the Field Lab museum. Still have parts to assemble 4 more but I found that the sun is much more reliable out here.

That's an interesting looking temp gage. Are you happy with it? Would you mind sharing the make and model?

Hi John, It was nice visiting with you this morning! My hike up in the Chisos was nice, but very hot - right about 100 degrees. Hope to visit with you again.

For not checking on them in six months, the battery bank looks pretty good...
