Monday - Warm. Overnight lows were probably in the 60's, finally, and it may not have hit 90F today, very nice.
There was a big wind storm late Sunday night and afternoon - a nearby PWS shows wind speeds of 37.4mph, my estimate was 40mph. Generally you start getting a "whistle" under the eaves at about 40mph.
The two new awnings were down because the tensioning bungees had snapped. Other than that there was no damage to them, so I rolled the cloth up and put them in the container until I can get more. Oddly these were the two new bungees, with just a few months of use on them, the older set on the third awning date to last year and are still fine. All made in China of course, but different lots and different durability I guess.
I also used the submersible pump to empty the turtle tank water, and refilled it. It takes about the same amount of time as using a siphon to exchange 5 gallons, but you have to lock the cats away and you can't leave it unattended (which may be a good thing, really, if I ever get a new floor).
I went to the neighbor's for dinner and we watched Monday night football,
and then (for me) the first half of Denver and the Raiders.
Sunday - Warm. Not as bad as it's been though. Perhaps the heat has finally broken, though we are almost guaranteed at least one more warm spell before October.
I went shopping with S, picked up some groceries.
Yesterday's intestinal distress was still with me, it was kind of an unpleasant afternoon, and I just had a can of soup for dinner.
Book #34 was The Hive (Formic War #2), by Orson Scott Card. This is the most recent entry in the Ender's Game series, and is actually a (well done) prequel.
