Spring'kle

Cooked up two batches of cheese this morning.  Nice thing about making cheese - there is wait time that allows for other things - like prepping for rain.  My efforts were doubly rewarded with 2 lbs. of cheese and a rainstorm this afternoon.  Got a good pelting with pea sized hail for about 20 minutes.  Mr. Floppy took it like a man with his back to the wind.  My boys figured out the barn is a good thing after running around like crazy when the storm began.  Not enough rain for the creeks to flow, but I caught about 500 gallons of new water off my catchment systems.  63,90,55, .24",B, 0

That photo of Floppy reminds me of Eeyore...Oh well another rain on my parade.

Rain in the desert is always welcome!

That same storm is due to hit the Houston area in the early morning hours. We also got another line in front of that one that probably dumped an inch of rain. Much needed and glad to see it went through most of Texas, as it's needed.

Michael wanted me to tell you that he is so blessed to have you and the friends of the field lab sending him get well cards and words of encouragement. He is so thankful for all his friends out there and wanted to let you know so that you can let the folks know that he is smiling and fighting back against the cancer.
