Got the north beam welded into place this morning. The cow already knows where the new late day shade will be. Ominous weather in the area so I shot down south for last minute provisions. Storms to the left of me...storms to the right - just 2 hours of drizzle here. Not enough to add to the pond - a better chance tomorrow afternoon. I had a feeling that I wouldn't get a gusher because Benita stayed close by all day. Usually when a big storm is coming, she takes off. I wouldn't be surprised if her horns tell her how bad the weather is going to be.
Hiked around after the 2 hour drizzle and checked a resurrection fern coming back to life on my south 20 and the queen mother of FL Cat's Eye plants with a millipede crawling around. 84,109,78, .17, B
