It actually feels and looks like winter!
Pulled the last of the traps and the wind was blowing snow in behind the truck fairly fast.
More storms coming in over the mountains and the wind at the house is moving the road runner's leg really fast.

Arco to Carey is now closed due to snow and drifting.

So much for a early spring.

I was meaning to warn ya about conclusions and weather predictions in early February; they CAN bite you in the butt. Also, recycling topic subject headlines. But, that's just me, there's no rule, as such.

Just kidding. But hey, I've seen blizzard conditions in May, in SOUTHERN Arizona, so it CAN happen.

Just settle down and enjoy civilian life. [Smile]

Good hunting. El Bee

edit: If we didn't like ya, we wouldn't pick on ya.

edit: and "He who shall not be named" made a grumpy comment about what do you expect? Intermountain region, etc. [Smile] [Smile]

The tan lines from my flip-flops last summer are starting to fade.
Brutal conditions.

Got a number of pocket note books my father always carried in his front shirt pocket to keep track of feed prices, number of bales on either of our two pastures, number of piglets born or claves etc. It's noted inn bold letters, SNOW MAY 11th, I can remember it, just not the year?, never saw that occur again in my lifetime there.

Yeah but I was there! Had to put on the chains, which I ALWAYS carry anyway. And, it blew in from the EAST and 40 miles from Tucson, on the Papago, of course. There's something about mysterious weather patterns coming up out of Sonora, always scrambled. Assume you folks have heard about the monsoons and the frogs?

But, they are always somewhere else, like over there, not right here where we are. You know? I mean, it's AWESOME and all that, but you don't really get dumped on, seems like? But, I agree, we need to do something about it! Thanks for mentioning it!

Vic, we need you here. On this. What about the heat lightning? What did Dad say? Ever done Sasabee? (just nod your head)

Used to have family picnics in Sasabee in the 60's, was a beautiful area. Have hunted that whole Altar valley area only a few times. With the introduction of antelope, they only allow coyote hunting in the months I don't like to hunt coyotes. Far to many Border Patrol and illegals as well as other hunters in that area anymore, plus it's a bit of a push in distance to run for hunting for me?

I had to look up heat lightning, never heard of it? Wiki tells me it's simply lightning so far off in distance the associated cracks and booms are not audible, so apparently, Ive seen heat lightning thousands of times.

Well yeah, I'm talking back in the day. Haven't been there in a long time. But it is a cool area, used to be.

Actually, I do remember hunting once about ten years ago and the damned coyotes were spooky as hell. I could hear them shooting at 3 points. Fuck that! Arrivaca.

But, down around the border, it always seems kind of exotic, to me. I've mentioned before, actually climbing the fence to drag a coyote. Those days are over! Can't even believe I did that? And, not just once. Dumb ass.

Good hunting. El Bee

Ive shot my share of Mexican coyotes, by setting up right near the barbed wire fence......just never crossed it to retrieve them.

That's what I'm talking about. You are just smarter than me. Of course we always had to bring them back for check in, otherwise there was no point.

But, yeah, mainly all we had was a double strand of barbed wire fence, two fences side by side, which actually made it easier to climb over.

Those days are pretty much over. Now, it's just strolling down Memory Lane. lol

Good hunting. El Bee

edit: come to think of it, since the monuments were well past the barbed wire, sometimes, I guess we weren't technically in Mexico?

You know, I've seen the trash for years in the desert between Yuma and Tucson because that's where I concentrated. But, the first time I did a little hunting between Nogales and Tucson, I was literally shocked at the backpacks, plastic jugs and sleeping bags. And, there is a sort of valley that runs along 19 most of the way. I suppose most of the traffic is at night, but boy, just judging by all the discarded stuff, it's more like a landfill. There's not yet flocks of crows and seagulls, but with a few more Doritos and cookie crumbs and they will show up. It's really amazing, you have to see it to believe it.

And, I just had a thought. Instead of stringing razor wire on the border, they need to get it along that corridor. Every mile. Oh, and when you get a heavy rain, all those damned jugs float and pile up. I'm wasting my time talking about it, you cannot visualize it without seeing it.

Good hunting. El Bee

West side of the state is getting pounded by the weather. Any elevation is getting snow like in the old days. Road are closing due to drifting and blowing snow. Avalanche Alley is closed now. Looks like from Idaho City to Stanley. East side of the state a lot of roads are closed due to blowing and drifting snow.
We seem to be in the donut hole. 41* cloudy and a south wind so there is melting going on.
Glad I don't have to or need to drive anywhere. Couldn't get there if I wanted to.

It's been raining here all day and forecast is to continue all day tomorrow, only harder.

But, I know we need it. I'm still getting cabin fever. Good thing I bought 4 more books at the thrift store.

edit: 1 Crichton, 1 Forsyth, 1 Ron White and 3 Hillerman.
Right now I'm half way through Poland by Michener. Figured it was my duty to learn something about the old country. It's actually quite interesting.

Good hunting. El Bee

I have this Lady Friend. She just took delivery on a new custom designed Mercedes (S550?) and said there will only be 100 built. Now, how do I respond to that, given that my truck is 15 years old and badly in need of paint? She has reconstructed breasts, BTW. I don't think this is going to work.

What to do, Miss Lonely Hearts? ko ko?

Good hunting. El Bee
