since i have nothing else to offer this evening, three more shots from yesterday. first, we had a little rain that fell during the night, leaving drops in the morning yesterday. second, another angle of that sunset yesterday later on in the evening. third, looking up at the moon yesterday evening.

ah, the wind's not that bad. i just drove into town ... dodged a burlap sack, a bale of hay, a sofa, an rv ... nah, it's not bad. not bad at all. even some of our radio stations are off the air, presumably because the wind's knocked their antennae around.
AUUUGGGHHH!!!! stop the wind, please! i need to concentrate!
just so you know, we're getting beaten to death by high winds. the advisory says 40 mph; i'll eat a spare shoe if it's that low. it just ripped the stakes out from my aspen tree tie-downs; had to go out and re-set them. i hope they'll hold.
there's virtually nowhere in new mexico to hike or backpack, as of today. carson national forest has partially closed. i can forget wheeler peak for now. obviously they chose to close today because of the impending memorial day weekend.

preparing for a 9 am gig tomorrow. few postings, if any, today.
