07:05, 66F, mostly cloudy. songbirds belting it out. roosters crowing.
07:30, bright orange sunrise. line of showers out in the gulf have disappeared. rats. hoping they reappear as the day heats up or whatever .. we need rain! caught another mouse. took it down to the hay barn. it's these old cracker houses - not mouse proof at all. and then the rat snakes come in. dog even found a young possum once - under the couch.. and folks wonder why I have several dogs ..
eastern skies bright gold now.
lower suwannee wildlife refuge has an open house today from 10-4.. might go. but I should do my garden. they'll have food.. decisions, decisions..
14:20, 76F. overcast SW wind with gusts. it rained - just a shower. just enough to get my clothes wet.
went to lower suwannee. the food was good! had swamp cabbage! the talk from a fellow from mote marine lab was even better than the food - about shark movements. with an aside on sturgeon in the suwannee and pythons in the everglades. very enjoyable and informative. rained there too.
seems like there might be a break in the showers. will have to keep an eye on it so I can get my clothes in before they get wet again..
16:20, 75F, wind SW with gusts. after a lull in the rain, it began to drizzle. got my clothes in and hung them around the house. distant thunder except for one big clap over the house. made us all jump.
18:10, another break in the rain that gave me enough time to feed the sheep and the donkeys. then it began to pour. got 0.7" rain. more thunder.
19:30, 66F, rain ended. SW breeze. clouds golden to the east. rounded up the dogs and fed them.
20:00, 68F, SW breeze. overcast. not going to see that crescent moon tonight..
