Global Confusion

After our flood earlier this month, some of the vegetation thinks we were washed into the Southern Hemisphere. Stuff that should be happening in spring is happening now: Here’s a lime tree with new growth, buds, and flowers. This usually happens in the spring in late February and March. At this time of year, the […]

No Doggy Door at Night for a while

UPDATE Number 1: Our mixed up friend, Heather Carter, won yesterday. She got about 38% and her 2 opponents got 31% each. She runs in the final in early November. There may be more updates to come.   The latest I’ve heard is that Carter will win and Carter won’t win. For those interested, Ducey […]

The house across the road and two doors down suffered a collapse of a section of their block fence. Nobody was hurt and the horse was removed OK-you […]

Was that Noah’s ark that just floated by?

UPDATE: TV reports that New River got over 5 inches (13cm) of rain in five hours at one point. It’s still raining on and off. The flooding has washed away a van. There’s a woman getting rescued by helicopter from her home. We’re OK because we have Kali who drinks water like a fish. http://www.azcentral.com/videos/news/local/phoenix/2014/08/19/14297783/ http://www.abc15.com/news/region-northeast-valley/anthem/rescue-in-progress-2-people-trapped-in-new-river-home […]
