sunny 79 °F

We had Don & Barbara over sat nite and I saw what looked like a balloon waaayy up there in the southern sky. The sun had long since set and it was pretty dark here, but the balloon was in the sun, way up. With the scope I could tell it was a genuine weather balloon. They said on tv it was at 9000'+ a few hours later. Pretty cool. It was too far away and no camera adapter to get a reasonable image with.

work

overcast 78 °F

working today... Larry say's " take a look at that" , so I go over to where he's looking and , sure enough, there's a snake in the tow-bar isle. just 16" or so, not a garter snake but not a rattler either, like a baby rat snake or something. Lots of rain lately but there's still only a handful of days in almost 6 mos. that have been cloudy all day. Temps in the lower 80°s now, I wear my jacket...

Acoma

sunny

We went to Acoma pueblo today for the Sept 2nd St. Stephen ceremony . Unfortunately no pictures allowed. The dress of the Indians was very colorful and we watched a couple of ceremonial dances and were impressed by it . There were at least 200 dancers. Bill & Criss took us .

lightening

storm 77 °F

Can't get pictures of the lightening without video capability. We have been eating dessert and watching lightening strike all around us. 15-20 strikes /min. I couldn't hear the thunder till just a little while ago. So we went inside. We watched the light show for almost an hour without hearing anything. So it has to be at least 20 or 25 + miles away cause we can readily hear the thunder from 10 -15 miles ( downtown and by the Sandia's and Manzano's).
