06:25, 66F, overcast, dark, windy.. dry as a bone although the radar shows rain just to the west..
hmmm. rooster quiet. bacon for breakfast. maybe an egg, too. and toast.
07:10, it's raining - kinda, sorta.. a drizzle, anyway. crows calling, rooster's up.
09:15, 68F, mostly cloudy, wind SSW, 5-10.. rain didn't last long but hoping to get more. got 4 eggs. 6 does in the cactus field under the oaks that border it to the west. beautiful, graceful creatures. time to wind it up.
ran into a heavy rainstorm on the way to CK. it must have skirted the farm. got 0.2" on the rain gauge but the wind probably dried it up.
medium low tide at CK with black skies to the SW.
just got a drizzle, but winds, 12-18 knts. overcast and blustery. clearing in the afternoon. the west wind drove the tide in. very high tide at 16:00 when I left.
65F at the farm at 16:30. sunny and breezy. all the love grass from the pasture was piled up on the east fence when I got back.
58F at 18:30. got 2 more eggs. venus brilliant in the west. jupiter up above, stars bright until a mist rolled in.
