Eighth Day of Hunting Season
or, as we call it, Tuesday

No hunting this day. And probably not Wednesday or Thursday either.

This morning's temperature was in the low 20s and it never got above 32 here at the Aerie. We also got snow for a good part of the morning but it didn't accumulate much; just a half inch of light powder. A steady breeze in the 10 to 15 mph range blew out of the north-northwest all day.

After running down to the post office and WalMart with Terry at 1 PM, I spent the rest of the afternoon clearing a couple of stacks of fire wood that would be in the area where the well drillers will be working tomorrow. They weren't big piles, only amounting to about 1/4 cord each, but it had to be moved by wheelbarrow over a slippery, snow covered slope. At least it got moved DOWN the slope and not UP.

Then late in the afternoon I had to take Terry down to retrieve her Jeep Compass. It had an electric short that was causing all the warning lights to come on at random intervals. The trouble started when she left Texas heading west back in October. She thought she had it taken care of by a Jeep dealership in Anaheim, but the problem started again as she was heading east.

It's always something-or-other with a vehicle. Remembering that dealers hate to do warranty repairs (it takes forever to receive reimbursement from the corporation), sometimes it's faster to go through a favorite mechanic. If there is such a thing, and if it's affordable.

My, how I do go on. Anyway, sorry about the lack of cooperative weather. I used to go out no matter what, when I was younger, just because I wanted to be "out there" in the woods.
