Clear and damp, with a little coolness, rapidly heating up. It was only 72F when I put the kids on the bus yesterday, but it got warmer throughout the day. I’m glad I didn’t have to get in the attic at my client’s house, but using the ladder in the yard was a bit sweaty. I think today will be even warmer, but maybe some of the humidity will blow out.
There are a lot of mosquitos this year, and they are even biting me. They normally don’t, and if they do, it doesn’t leave a mark. Wonder what it’s gonna be like at the lake?
Which is where I’m headed later. Have to get loaded up and make a pickup on my way out of town. The auction had the wrong times listed, and I thought I would be able to make it. I guess it’s good I didn’t drive up last night… although I would have liked to start the day at the BOL, not driving.
Did get some stuff done yesterday. Got the NVR to display image from the existing cams. Well, mostly. I may even be able to re-use a couple to extend coverage with the new system. Can’t order the cams until next week because B&H closed for a long holiday. Memorial Day weekend must coincide with a Jewish holiday this year. Maybe every year, but I never noticed…
In any case, I’ll be back out at the site to swap out cams in a week or two. In the mean time, at least the NVR is recording.
I’ll be taking a load of stuff up with me. Mostly not food, but I’ll add a couple of buckets if I can. I saw a pair of rats on the patio yesterday. They’ve eaten all the stuff they can get into, except the stuff that exploded, so they aren’t wrecking more, but I’ll refill the poison baits anyway. Cleaning up that whole area has been pushing down the list for a week or more, but that was when I though it was a possum in the mess. Possums I can live with, rats, no. So it’s back to the saga of the rats for me. Good thing I bought those buckets of bait blocks.
Stack some rodent and pest control. They’ll be increasing as city services decrease, and you’ll be on your own. Remember when there was nothing in the stores? That will happen again.
Stack all the things!
