Last week this time we were putting the final frenzied touches on the "get out of Dodge rig." A week later, we're completely unpacked, settled in and by day's end we will even have the whole property weed whacked and looking good again. Meanwhile, here's our periodic "Tale of Two Places" weather comparison. A really big storm is smacking Idaho today. There are blizzard warnings posted here and there and some areas might get as low as 30 below. Idaho Falls is progged to endure a balmy minus 12. (Note: Balmy is relative to -30.)
This morning's low here at Montezuma Well is a chilly 21 degrees. There's a heavy frost outside. That's great as it will make weed whacking even easier today. Weeds go down a lot faster when their stem fibers have been frozen solid.
The temps were in the upper to mid-30's during campfire time. However, the sky was crystal clear and there was no wind. We've put up a large format view of The Mogollon Rim taken last evening. If you click on the small version, you will get a very large version so that you can pan back and forth and maybe see some detail in this view out across Montezuma Well Nat'l Monument.
It's great to be unpacked. Today, we're going to wait until the frost thaws and then attack the remaining weeds. Hopefully, we will get the firewood stowed and stacked, too. The Goatherder and Son Josh might pay us a visit today. Gary W. stopped by for a great visit last night. Gary's been known as "Lizard" for at least 40 years. We might stop calling him Gary W. and switch to Lizard. If the shoe fits....
That's about all the chatter we have this morning. Enjoy yet another day of Hearty Cheers! jp
