After all the heat and smoke and pressure of Summer, the sun has clocked around again and is rising at the right end of the dry-creek feature. As we head into Winter a few days of mild weather remain, and the opportunity to finish some yard-projects before it begins to rain.We look forward to the changes in temperature, and the chance we might get a little snow eventually. Rain will be an indicator of where we need to dig-out drainage channels – many of the rivulets have been upset by burrowing squirrels and will need repair, and so too the main channel. Mainly rain will bring relief from pressure, after the long, hot and smoky, Wuhan Virus plagued year of political torment and unrest. Fortunately we remain free and the chaos remains distant.
