Sunday 17

Sunday 17- I did my stretches and ran two miles.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 40 and 60 degrees, slight breeze, humidity around 41 percent, sunny in the morning then getting cloudy and nasty 3pm.
According to the National Weather Service: “M.L.King Day: Rain. High near 55. South wind between 11 and 21 mph, with gusts as high as 29 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. Monday Night: Rain. Low around 41. South southwest wind between 13 and 21 mph, with gusts as high as 29 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%.”
There’s an “Epic El Nino Rainfall Expected in California” and it looks like it’s going to rain all week according to the National Weather Service, so I decided to get everything buttoned down and prepare for rain. I cut up a whole lot of firewood so I’ll be nice and cozy while I ride out the weather. I have no place I need to be this week so I won’t have to drive any long distance in the rain; after Friday’s accident I don’t feel like driving anyways.
My neighbor Ginger sent her daughter by horse asking help on patching her trailer roof before the rains come. We spent almost two hours on top of her trailer patching it up. I had to cut some sheet metal into squares and screw them down over two vents that were missing. Around 3pm the weather turned nasty. The sunny sky was gone replaced by clouds that looked mighty full of rain. We were finished by 4pm and I drove over to check on Stoney who was watching cowboys and Indians on TV.
I got back home just after sunset so I wouldn’t be on the roads without lights on my truck; the headlights were taken out during the collision. I practiced my guitar and read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today” about high energy astronomy, and “The Cell: a Molecular Approach” about metabolic energy; Gibbs free energy and ATP that went completely over my head. I watched “Nature: Clash, Encounters of Bears and Wolves” on PBS about grizzly bears and wolves in Yellowstone National Park.
It started raining and I called Stoney to let him know because he wouldn’t hear it over the blaring TV; rain is big news out here!
I started a new book “The Lost World” by Michael Crichton. I’ve seen the movie a couple of times but never read the book and books are always better than the movies; well except for the special effects, but then again it helps to have a vivid imagination when reading!
I did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
