    Oh, duh. In Wyoming, we still mark the roadsides with long bamboo poles.

    Of course I could have answered "experience" or "trial and error". ;-)
    Poles are also common here.

    Quite pleasant weather today. Not too hot, not too cold. Partly sunny, partly cloudy and a mild breeze.

    I observed the wind and clouds for a while while waiting out door: On the ground, the wind came from the east. The puffy clouds above blew in from the west and then there was a layer of clouds above coming in from the east. Fascinating.

    To translate (encapsulate?), it's really really hot- and dry, and there's a really bad fire in one of our National Parks.

    How did you get to be such a brilliant translator?

    Our weather continues to be nice though we had several ferocious fronts blow through yesterday that took some small branches down. Seems to be a good year for snakes; we have several in the yard. I don't mind having them but I wish they'd stay off the patio and front steps. Stepped on one poor little guy a couple of days ago and would like to avoid repeating the experience. He was under the arch of my foot so lucked out and didn't get squashed severely.

    I'd gladly send you some of the rain we've had this summer if we can get a small portion of the heat in return....

    Oh, the poor thing. I take it you don't have a lot of poisonous snakes there?

    Deal! Now we just have to get Mother Nature to cooperate and we'll both be set.
