Today will see rain. Amount 5 to 10 mm(0.2 to 0.4 in). The wind will be southeast at 20 km/h (12 mph) increasing to 40 km/h (25 mph) gusting to 60 km/h (37 mph) this morning. The high will be 9C(48F).
Tonight will bring more rain with an easterly wind at 20 km/h (12 mph) becoming light after midnight. The low will be 5C(41F).
It's back to the cuckoo clock project. I was making some adjustments to the positing and the thing fell to the floor.:). The case is pretty well a lost cause. The old brittle wood broke in a couple of places. Oh well I guess I'll look on the web for clocks and see if I can make a new case.
It's a good thing the great granddaughters weren't around when the clock fell. Mom wouldn't be pleased with the new words they would have learned.
I extended my walk with Abbey yesterday. It dawned on me that I could get around the area the Queen told me not to go into due to semi's coming out of and into McCain's Western distribution center. I followed the railway spur McCain's uses to ship by train and where they bring in oil for cooking the fries. From the railway I can go behind the plant and come out at a little used gravel road. Following that route I'm back to a 3 1/2 mile trek. I didn't think the extra mile would bother me but I sure was stiff last night. I wonder if Abbey felt the difference. With her gopher hunting she nearly doubles my distance. i don't know why I didn't think of that route sooner.
