After I closed all of the windows and soaked up some excess water I just had to get some sleep. Closing the windows meant it wasn't going to get into the upper 40's inside, but it was that or have a lot of wet stuff as the wind was pretty relentless. I managed to doze off in between flashes and booms and was the portrait of sunshine and happiness when I awoke at 5:40.
The drive to work isn't bad, 90 minutes and it's the amount of time I'm awake before I would leave from the city house to arrive on time. I don't have a set time, and that's good, I encountered some high water and had to backtrack a bit.
|Water was up to almost the top of the tires|
|Turned around and headed back toward the higher ground|
I love running downhill but my quads aren't appreciative today. That means they won't appreciate tonights planned downhill fun.
We did some yard and flower bed beautification, cleaned out the garage and removed the cinder block burn 'pit'. It's all coming together nicely and is allowing for some relaxation in between projects.
Here are some more photo's from this weekend. I'm heading down on Wednesday with a few hundred pounds of food/supplies and then we will both be back on Friday for ATV weekend excitement.

|Have to check the stovepipe cap, seems to be a small issue|
|1/2 way point between the two houses, surrounded by prisons but nice view of Pikes Peak|
|West of the cabin, looking South East|
|End of the 'road'. I'm going to hike up there soon and check it out|
|I think this was looking towards the cabin from west to South East.|
|Random scenery shot this morning|
|More scenery from the weekend, close to the cabin|
|Rock in a 5 minute stare down with a local|
I forgot my fruit salad at the cabin, so it's an early lunch for me.
