If there was any question that Spring is on the way,
the first tiny blooms are starting to appear on the
Sonoran Desert Floor.
This morning when I went outside, the "backyard" was speckled
with these little gems.
Around 1230 local I noticed that my Solar Output had peaked for the
day. As the sun gets higher I continue to get new record high output.
Today we hit 475W and 30 amps going into the batteries.
Total harvest today was 207 amp hrs.
Around 2 we had to head to the ranger station as I had some work related
correspondence to put in the mail.
Crossing the Roosevelt Bridge.
Looking back at the bridge.
The dam is just out of sight to the right.
I'll get a picture of that in a day or two from a better vantage point.
Looking up the lake.
Around dinner time tonight I heard the unmistakeable drone of 4 big turboprop
engines running overhead. Of course I had to investigate and saw this C130
flying low. His behavior led me to believe that something was up, so I stayed
out longer while my dinner got cold...
Sure enough, a while later he passed by low, and all of a sudden...
Notice the difference in the color of the sky and you can see how long I
was watching this guy... The sun had dipped below the mountains.
Safe landing boys!
Across the lake the sun had painted the mountains a fiery red.
That concluded another day.
Soon the big ol moon will rise... oh that's another show!
Thanks to all the well wishers.. Kate and I are feeling a bit better
each day. Tonight I could kinda sorta even taste dinner so that is progress.
If we had gone to Mexico with Jim & Kristi we could have gotten some
Z-Pack like they did and perhaps kick this thing faster... but alas, here
in the states you have to spend a fortune and see a doctor to get some
simple medications so its tough it out a bit longer.
