Sassy,
Yes, the prairie dogs and ground squirrels carry plague. When one of them dies, their fleas abandon the dead ship/body and climb on the nearest animal. So we stay away from dead ones and crazy ones.

Star,

Colorado is simply exciting and invigorating. You don't just live there - you LIVE there.

Mags,
Yes I finished as the rain started to pour down. We got severe winds last night and a big limb fell off a large oak in the front yard, so I had a morning clean up to do.

Good morning Overs.

Dee, thank you for the new part.

We have some serious cloud cover this morning, needed lights on to see my breakfast.

Have a good day everyone.

Thanks, Dee.

Itchy, hard to believe snow in Colorado at this point in the year. We have finally had early summer weather this past weekend with temps ranging from 65 to 83 during the day.

Have a good day to all!

Mags!
Too funny! Vultures tearing the limbs off trees! Everywhere in Colorado is breathtaking. Sorry not brag, just fact. Snow wise, here is why:

"This elevation map of Colorado illustrates the number of feet or meters the state rises above sea level. As you can see, all of Colorado resides at over 2,000 feet above sea level. The Great Plains cover the eastern 2/5 of the state. The Rocky Mountains run north to south through the central part of the state.

At a mean elevation of 6,800 feet above seal level, Colorado has the highest mean altitude of the 50 states.

Colorado's low point, 3,315 feet above sea level at the Arikaree River in Yuma County, is the highest low point in the nation and is higher than 18 state high points.

The highest point in Colorado, Mount Elbert at 14,440 feet above sea level in Lake County, is also the highest point in the Rocky Mountains and the second highest point in the Continental United States. It's located in the Sawatch Range in the western-central part of the state about 20 miles east of Aspen."
Source: Colorado Base and Elevation Maps

Andy,
Us too but the storms aren't raining here, they are in a circle all around here, but not over us? Click on Microsoft weather in the start menu and go to Princeton LA 71067 and click on the radar symbol. Very weird weather here!

Paul,
That shouldn't be all you get today.

Sassy,
Re snow see the above. I miss four seasons, where summer weather is not 105° with 75% humidity. Enjoy! Sassy my favorite fishing lake is an alpine lake in a mountain crest that is inaccessibly snow bound until late July and in August has four foot snowbanks under the pine's shade.

Star,
Thanks, I will keep as much snow as mother nature sends my way.. Bear in mind it melts off the roads as soon as the sun comes out and everything is dry within 48 hours. And warm again. I've seen 55° in July in the Springs, and 75 degree Christmas' too. So winter isn't always, and either is summer. And the dry climate moderates both cold and heat.

Well the first appointment hasn't come to fruition yet, hope it picks up soon. I'm heading out to go see some of the damage from the storms yesterday. Mine was an easy cleanup. I just piled it all on the burn pile.

Bye!

Hiya Overs

Itchy, there’s so much space in Colorado, well in USA too! We’re just a tiny island in the U.K. that would get lost in your country. I don’t expect it feels any different being in whatever size country we’re in I guess? that’s my thought for today,

FBL Congratulations on getting your book sales out, I’m sure the orders will keep on coming.

We’re having some summer here at the weekend, so the forecast says, and next week too! It’ll be nice to see some sunshine....wonder how long before they’re saying there’s a water shortage!

Have a good Wednesday, my friends. xx

Good morning Overs.

Itchy, very strange.

I have a family of starlings https://www.rspb.org.uk/birds-and-wi...-a-z/starling/ camped out on one of my bird feeders, squabbly things. I'll have to get another feeder for the other birds. DD has just counted 15 starlings.

Have a good day everyone.

Mags, in spite of the big size of the US, most of us, I think, associate ourselves with whatever state we live in. It’s a bit like the European Union, I think.

Have a great day, Overs!

Hiya Overs

Sass, yeah you’re right. Thing is we live in our own world and circle, it always fascinates me the size of it all. Mr.M has been talking too much about the universe to me, it’s rubbing off!

Hope you’re all well my friends, have a good Thursday xx
