Tuesday 19

Tuesday 19- I did my stretches and lifted weights; the ground is too soaked and muddied to go on a run, dang!
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 41 and 54 degrees, SSE winds at 4 to 22 MPH, humidity around 61 percent, stratus clouds covering the whole sky bringing lots of rain later in the afternoon and evening again.
According to the National Weather Service: “Wednesday: A 50 percent chance of rain after 10am. Cloudy, with a high near 52. South southwest wind 8 to 11 mph increasing to between 17 and 20 mph. Winds could gust as high as 28 mph. Wednesday Night: Rain. Low around 38. Breezy, with a south wind 22 to 25 mph decreasing to between 11 and 14 mph. Winds could gust as high as 34 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%.”
My insurance company claims department called to take a statement for the accident last Friday and said that they will supply me with all the information that I need to file a claim with the insurance company of the guy who hit me. Giving the statement made me relive it, which wasn’t very pleasant for me. I realize now that if he hit me a fraction of a second later he would have hit the driver’s door (where I was seated) and may have flipped the Gross Polluter over and done some serious damage to me and the truck!
I went over to Stoney’s where he was wielding a part of his woodstove that he broke trying to repair the vent. I brought along a part of my woodstove that had cracked in two and had him wield that too. When I left it started to rain, and it rained all day.
I’m feeling kind of restless not being able to go on my runs or evening walks, and I think I gained a pound or two. When the weather gets better I’ll return to my routine but until then there is much I have to do around the house to keep me busy.
I read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today” and “The Cell: a Molecular approach”. Then I read “The Lost World” until late into the evening; just like last night.
I watched “NOVA: Riddles of the Sphinx” on PBS.
I wrote my column for the Hi Desert Star Newspaper and sent it in.
I did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.

I am just a guy out in the desert amazed at the things out here where I live, the folks I call my friends, and this that we call the Internet. I am excited to share them with you!
