June 9th Another nice Saturday at The Park (wink to BC) and a photo of the latest critters. Cute, but they're going to eat our plants, I know it!
Lovely day, spent some quality time at the SDZOO Safari Park this morning. Some bonus entertainment this morning during and after volunteer work. Close to the end of the 'shift', we caught a glimpse of a family of long tail weasels playing tag around the rocks and sage. This guy was caught in mid air!
They were surprisingly tolerant of our proximity and put on a show for several minutes.
As we were hiking to the cars - this guy crossed our path. About 4 feet long, in no hurry, heading to the creek, hopefully on the prowl for rats or gophers!
Back to the weather, the storm is gone leaving sunny days and high temps in the mid 70s and 1/4 inch of rain in its wake. Weather folks were saying .5 to 1", but it is late April and that would be unusual. Looked like from the radar that maybe SBK got a lot more. We are at 10.8" for the rain season this year - about 2/3s of normal and not likely to get any more until the late summer monsoon (disappointing last summer).
