Mon. Jan. 28, 2019 – January almost gone

Cool and damp this am. Didn’t get the batteries changed in my station, so I’m pretty sure 51F is yesterday. It did get nice and warmish, with beautiful clear skies yesterday.

I did manage to get a couple of my other projects done. New style of rat trap was built and installed. If it produces rats, I’ll do a couple more. I haven’t seen any poop in a while, since I vacuumed everything. I did see the rat on the fence though.

Finished pruning the bushes. That is a time definite task and this was as good a time as most. I imagine it is even worse if you are farming or ranching. Stuff needs to be done when it needs to be done, and you don’t have much choice. We’re not quite to “when all danger of frost has passed”, but I will be planting something soon. Not sure what yet, but it’s getting close.

Lots of stuff still going on internationally. And we can’t seem to keep our noses out. As Dr Pournelle often wrote- “There Will Be WAR” here or there or all over the place… it will be ugly.
