Tuesday 09

Tuesday 09- I did my stretches and ran a mile.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 35 and 57 degrees, SE winds at 4 to 18 MPH, humidity around 67 percent, mostly cloudy skies with rain in the late evening.
According to the National Weather Service: “Wednesday: Showers likely, mainly before 10am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 50. Northwest wind between 7 and 17 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 39. West northwest wind between 9 and 14 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.”
Ginger called asking me to feed Princess her horse because she had car problems and couldn’t make it; I told her no problem and moseyed on over. Princess was glad to see me and the carrot I brought her.
The Weather Service is saying that a bad winter storm is coming tonight so I drove down to Stater Bros. to get so supplies. There were a whole lot of folks in the store probably doing the same thing.
I got back home to practice my guitar and then I read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today” about Earth’s atmosphere; “The Cell: a Molecular Approach” about RNA viruses and reverse transcription; and Digital Electronics Course about encoders, decoders, multiplexers, and demultiplexers; yikes!
Got an email update from a family member of the dirt bike rider who crashed Sunday night: “The rider & passenger were riding down Copper Moon when they were struck by what he originally thought was a large tumble weed. Which turned out to be a huge ball of barb wire and wire fencing(said to be as large as an front door) Who knows how long it had been traveling around the desert with the extreme winds we experience! Needless to say the wire tumbleweed got the best of him. He did have a split second before impact to turn his body blocking the object from hitting his girlfriend who was his passenger. Thankfully she walked away with a scratch on her hand. He wasn’t so lucky. He collapsed his lung, his mother who arrived before medical help, did CPR on him for over a half hour! He is still hospitalized due to his extensive injuries; collar bone, leg, fractured vertebrates, collapsed lung, not to mention the superficial wounds made by the barb wire.” Now we know the rest of the story! I hope he recovers quickly! That was mighty brave thing he did to take the bike down so as not to get his girlfriend hurt!
I watched “NOVA: Extreme Cave Diving” very intense and very dangerous but fascinating!
I wrote my column for the newspaper and sent it in. I did my stretches and lifted weights; 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!
