When I talked to Lovely Daughter today she said it reached 38 back home today (Minnesota) and was melting. It's about time - the January thaw is just a bit late.
I think we're in the flight path of these little critters. I hung a humming bird feeder on the tree outside the windshield of our RV and I get heavy traffic most of the day. Mornings are really busy as are late afternoons. The antics of these little guys are amazing. They're just like helicopters when they stop in mid air and stay there, then buzz on to somewhere else. The first morning we were here I got buzzed by one so close I thought he was going to get caught in my hair. The next morning I got within 3 inches of touching one that was hovering at the feeder.
Today has been a frustrating day. Our generator seems to have died. Ole and Big Brother have worked on it most of the day, sending me to town for parts, etc. But all to no avail. We're dead and the only guy who works on these generators won't be back until Monday. $$$$$. Fortunately we have solar power but we're supposed to have rain and cloudy weather through the weekend. Imagine that - in the desert - rain.
Oh well, at least there's no possibility of us freezing to death down here (snicker).
