    It's been pretty cold and windy here the past few days. The wind has kicked up a lot of ash from the recent fires, so EVERYTHING is covered in ash again. I mowed the lawn this afternoon and there were clouds of ash dust coming out from under the mower so thick it looked like smoke.

    I lived a year in Tucson back in '94-95.... it was 106+ the day we arrived and were unloading our truck... locals thought we were crazy working in the heat... then when Dec/Jan arrived we were still running around in shorts and t-shirts... again locals thought we were crazy.. they all had their jackets & sweatshirts on... temps were in low 70's and high 60's.... after 15 years in Houston at 98+ humidity, the dry temps felt good.... they all said we would acclimate but didn't stay long enough.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
