I got up early this morning, before dawn, and went for a drive. There's a big lake east of us, and I wanted to be there for the sunrise. Part of the trip is made on a four lane road. Even though it's Memorial Day weekend, nobody was stirring. I don't think I saw two other cars in the thirty minutes I was on that highway.
It was pretty clear even that early thunderstorms were on the agenda for today. This afternoon we've had terrific rain, hail, and lightning bursts right overhead. Thanks to the ferret bad weather warning agency I had time to go through the storm procedures and had no equipment damage. I even got up on the roof, in that hard place to work on, and got that done before the rain came. My wife held on to the rope anchoring the ladder, and it was no trouble. She wants me to build a platform there to work on, and I think I will. It will be a sort of extension of the porch.
Sunday morning is a good time to be driving down the road, with a cup of coffee in the cup holder, the dogs in the back of the truck, and not a soul to be seen. I took this picture one handed, without using the view finder, and through the window. Not too shabby!
This is the new show on the Sportsman Channel that I think looks pretty good. I'm going to watch the first one and see how it goes.
