For everyone that is sick and tired of RAIN, and enjoying lush green grass, this is what I have been looking at since the first of April. Total rainfall for this year has been under 7 inches, some eastern states got that much in hours. We did have clouds for a few days, brought the temps down to the mid to high 80's but now we are in for another heat wave this weekend with temps in the 100 to 110 range.
Cal Fire has arrested 2 people in the Coarsegold area for arson, can you believe and man in his 40's and a 46 year old woman. What are they thinking. I don't understand someone that deliberately does that. Coarsegold had over 20 fires in their area in the last 8 weeks.
The big fire in Mid Pines area is contained at just under 1800 acres and no houses or lives lost. It was started by an abandon campfire. WTG Cal Fire.
In the picture below there is a mountain just to the right side out of the picture, there was a fire in that area contained at 150 acres, haven't heard of a cause of that one yet. It was put out in a few hours.
Last Sunday I decided to join the fiber group for a few hours and get in some spinning time. When I loaded my wheel, bag of wool, potluck salad and assorted
other junk stuff I left the door to the front porch open. Monday morning Bella decided to have a hissy fit and run thru the house barking then I saw the dove flying around trying fly thru a window. So opened the door and left it open for about 10 minutes, while I made some coffee, (hard to deal with doves in the house before coffee). Well didn't see it after a while so I closed the door. Tuesday morning I kept hearing a noise like a very large mouse chewing on paper. No mouse, just the dove still on the porch behind the curtains. Found a wicker basket, trapped the dove, slid a broom over the top of the basket and put it outside on a log. Had to find my shoes, then went outside to find a pan to put some water in for the dove .... it was gone. Now besides bird poop all over my window sills, (and chair) I have poop all over my truck. Right above where the dove is sitting there is a nest. Yesterday I saw 2 big dove tails protruding out both sides of the nest..... these guys need to build a bigger nest next time.
So until next time, have a good weekend ...............
