Linda and I about worked ourselves to death last Friday filling in by hand over four hundred feet of trench at the observatory. We should have spread it out over several days (or hired someone) but I had a solar outreach event on Saturday and the rain was supposed to start on Sunday. The rain did start Saturday night and still hasn't stopped. Saturday evening a neighbor called and said the observatory roof was partly open. Luckily he had a key and closed it for us. So Sunday we had to run back out to the observatory and check it. No rest for the weary. Now I only need to hook up the electricity to the RV (without frying myself) and we'll be good to go.
I have two more bird photos for you today. The cute couple are cardinals and their nest is in the front yard. As of Sunday, the mocking bird eggs in the observatory warm room still hadn't hatched.
