With sadness we watched Larry and Geri roll down the driveway Tuesday morning. We tried to talk them into staying longer but they have lots of stuff on their plates right now and needed to get moving.
Monday was another hot one here in Montana, 90 degrees—ugh! We cope with the heat by leaving the house windows and doors open at night—the house is right cool by morning—sometimes as low as 60 degrees. Before the sun starts to hit the open windows and screen doors, I close everything up and turn on the ceiling fans. The house will stay comfortably cool until about 4pm when the sun starts to come in some of the south facing windows. We also have an electric awning over the west facing dining/living room windows which I deploy before the sun starts to come in those windows. If it gets too bad we retreat to the basement!
Geri and I kept the washer/dryer going almost all day Monday. Poor Emmi received a bath and haircut—much to her dismay but I bet she is now more comfortable! Larry washed his truck and Michael gave the Can Am and jeep a bath.
When we drove to the Mill Creek area last week, it was very cool and very windy. We lost a roof vent on our long cargo trailer—Michael was ambitious and replaced that vent—I think he got a bit warm while up on that roof!
And it’s Clarks 2 Pack Rats 0!!!!! Yea us!! And yea Emmi—she alerted us to the fact there might be one of the buggers in the jeep this morning and she was right! Michael set a trap and by lunch time he was successful!
