Home With Mud

Good Friday morning,

No excitement in the forecast, unless you yearn for highs in the 70s, for some time.

Interesting perspective,

  1. We have had basically one day of rain since the start of our rain year Oct 1st.
  2. January, we had 10 days of a high of 70 degrees or more, and 5 days over 80.
  3. The first day of February starts our streak of 80 and over.
  4. There is no rain in sight. Next Wednesday we should get warmer again, kicking temps back into the 80s.

This year is not looking good for rain. I guess that is actually the best thing for Montecito. I was touring the area yesterday while on calls. It is incredible to see the damage up close.

One home on winding creek road off of Romero Canyon had 6 to 8 feet of mud all around it. The attached photo is from the good side of the house.  

Some areas I do not even recognize.

Ok that’s it for now, enjoy summer in February.

Thank you for coming up to do the demo for the Career Fair at Los Prietos. All the boys were fascinated by the chance to see how sheet metal is formed, and to do some of it themselves. A hands-on demo is always the most effective in getting the boys involved. We really appreciate your arranging the demo, especially since you had already put so much energy into the talk and demo you did for the Construction Technology class. The teaching and Probation staff were all impressed by how involved the boys were in your demo.
