Good 30º everything is frozen foggy morning.
Yesterday the rain, except for a few real pouring episodes, it mostly stayed just drizzling and the temperature got as high as 40º.
We got a total of 1" of rain.
There was snow at some places along the river, but we didn't get any here. I was surprised. There is some up on my mountain though...
My goosie-gooses showed up for a snack and a couple ravens joined them! Took this through the door (with screen door) so not as good, but didn't want to scare the ravens!
The turkeys were out and about as well as a couple deer. Bruiser wanted to stay dry, so he sat on the porch railing and kept and eye on the critters!
Friends and former neighbors PJ and Dave have moved to Quartzsite Arizona. They bought a piece of property and were having a prefab home built. For now they are living in their motorhome....
It was to be delivered this past Monday, but in the process of delivering it, it was blown over on the freeway...
PJ said both halves have to be rebuilt now and they won't get it until mid April.
My friend Trish commented on yesterday's blog that Elisha Otis was a strange name to be given to a boy. Otis was the elevator guy! It's not just the first name that is so odd, but it's the last name it's paired with! So, I looked into strange names and found these. OMGOSH!!
