Snow and Rain

Drusky,
Our "moisture" season normally begins as early as November with the first snow. We rely a lot upon snow pack in the mountains to provide irrigation in the spring and summer. Actual rain usually begins in April and can go as long as through June. We are a fairly dry climate here, so the actual rain fall is not a lot. With as dry as everything is here now, I expect the fire season to continue through the end of September or longer. Thanks for asking.
Blessings,
Arlen

Nice vid Johann, that song is rather creepy though. Who is it by? I'd like to Google the lyrics. Come to think of it there are creepy lyrics in many songs.

That's just Barry.....
Still learning to fly!

Don't know why I'm doing these vids!
They need editing,.....
Uploading to Vimeo takes 3hours and crashed twice.
Then some more converting time....
Quality goes for a ball of chalk
but,
Still fun to do and share!

Who needs to get back in the workshop!

Ninja toes? Makes me think of that story about these Ninja Crows in Hamburg that learned how to pluck the liver straight out of a living toad in one go.

Thanks!
Hehehe
I had to laugh,
The other day, whilst spray painting a fuz.
(Over spray going every where)
My wife asked.....
Why are you doing this?
"I'm learning a skill"
What for?
With an academic tone, I replied that,
" It's part of life's rich tapestry of experiences"
Oh no, she replied....
Just something else I have to manage!

Video's will just have to fall within this useless skill category!
