    good morning all. I need to get going, the motorhome is parked out front and the trash man is coming, and the dear teenage daughter across the street has once again parked opposite the motorhome. I can just see my humongous mirror dangling from its wires... so I sit here drinking my first cup of coffee, trying to wake up, and listening for the roar of the trash truck blocks away, so I know if I'm running out of time. Nadene wants to work in it today and clean up after our trip, and then back to storage, but one more trip! At least! Guess we have to head South...

    Going to start getting motorhome winterized. Bummer Ron, don't tell my wife that. She thinks I can drive it in the snow....wrong.

    45 and overcast, but it's supposed to clear up and we should see 70 degrees today. If it's as nice as yesterday, I'm going to mow the lawn.

    Ya, I know my dinking around for 3-4 hours is 15 mins. work with the right equipment. It does help give me an idea of what I want it look like when it's done.

    It's a really odd feeling to see that space opened up, like whose property is this?

    Another good looking day out there, hope everyone enjoys theirs.

    Wouldn't you know it, I had the windows open too, and there was a gust of wind and it blew the door shut, just as the shutter went off! Now it is no longer raining here. I tried.
    I'll bet it was a very cool gust of wind too. The kind that gives a temporary chill sensation.
    there are 2 kinds of oats. Oats in front of a horse, and oats behind the horse.

    You can't get away from some erosion in a rain storm like that, but good preparation (terracing, ditching, rip-rap rock, and grass) will mitigate the damage. I have some areas of gray/red clay/chipped caliche that just ruts like crazy in a 1" rain, much less 4-1/2". I have other areas that have the surface covered in round gravel up to 1" diameter where the soil has washed away and left the gravel to accumulate over eons. Those surfaces have mostly self-healed and do not erode unless you do something silly like scraping away the surface gravel.

    It's really scary, but it was 48.5 F here this morning with a huge dew that is still glistening on the grass so I can't mow.
