Fer Sizzle, my rizzle...

It is a bit hot at the ranch today:

But what is impressive is the dramatic change in temp, 3:30 pm, 111 degress.:
but 1 hour, 39 minutes and 88 miles later. 66 degrees:

In other news the road has been regraded and a fresh load of decomposed granite dropped and compacted.

Work to minimize erosion of the road entrance was also done. Mari Landscaping once again came thru and did a great job.

84 years

When my grandmother was born:

My grandmother died last week. This has given me the opportunity to reflect on how much has changed and yet how little time we take to appreciate the changes that define each successive generation.

84 years is enough time to see societal norms shift, to see technology begin to supplant human interaction and to see what was once thought impossible, become routine.

I only hope in the next 50 years the change I see is as beneficial as the change my grandmother experienced.
