Watering

‍‍ט תמוז ה תשסט - Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

Woke up early and did the morning watering. 20-minutes per side. The flowers look like they are flourishing. The tiger-eye is opening up like the picture on the box of plant food and the other flowers have big bright bids starting to open.

Did the morning watering just after waking up this morning. It didn’t rain yesterday and the rain the day before wasn’t that significant. 20 minutes per side.

A major thunder storm hit Denver this afternoon. It was so powerful it knocked out electricity to our block. Xcel Energy couldn’t figure out how it only took out our block but eventually found a¬†transformer in the alley behind our house that had been impacted and fixed it. Nice not having to water manually!

It’s raining again. Not as violent as last night but moisture nonetheless.

Good thing I skipped watering this morning. We got a lot of rain this afternoon. When I started my drive home from Castle Rock it started hailing and was nearly a whiteout. Denver didn’t get nearly as severe weather but it was certainly raining at home so the yard was given a drink.

As I left the office this evening it started raining. As I began the drive up over the mountain pass back toward Denver it started hailing. It was incredibly loud and very difficult to see. It appears as though it didn’t hail at home, however, so our flowers are safe. It did start to rain […]

When I got up this morning I did the morning watering. When I first turned on the hose the sprinkler didn’t oscillate like it should. I walked over and the mechanism that normally causes it to move was disconnected. It may be nearing it’s end. Ug. It also looks like we need taller stakes for […]

Did the morning watering. It’s supposed to be a hot day today and the rest of the week doesn’t look much different with daytime highs in the 90s. Guess summer is really here. 20-minutes per side.

Happy Father’s Day

‍‍ל סיון ה תשסט - Sunday, June 21st, 2009

In honor of Father’s Day, my father-in-law decided to buy me (a non-father, at least so far) a gift. We went over to Home Depot and he bought me a brush cutter and string trimmer which has interchangeable ends so I can later buy an attachment to do edging, or roto-tilling, or chain sawing or […]

‍‍כט סיון ה תשסט - Saturday, June 20th, 2009

It’s raining and this sounds like it might get in the way of our star gazing this evening. For once, I hope that it stops and that it clears up.
