Last Week Of February

It’s the end of February. Winter gasps out its old man’s breaths in a final, desperate attempt to give the Black Rock Desert some water. Or at least that how it seems to those of use with a Black-Rock-O-Centric mindset. Three inches of snow fell on Midian Ranch in one night; not too bad, until one considers the fact that seven inches of snow fell on the Spoo Ranch slightly further up the mountainside. I don’t think its going to be enough – my guess is that we have a long, dry summer ahead – but a little is far better than none: especially when all of your water comes out of a natural spring funneled into a ½ inch PVC pipe.

I don’t like to jinx myself, but everything seems fine out at the ranch. Tina and I have decided to move in late April and put the Richmond house on the market, regardless of how ready it is or not. Homes are going for a small fortune in our neighborhood right now, and we simply can’t miss the spring home buying rush. Once moved (and sold), we begin on the dozen or so construction projects that have long been off for far too long: the construction of a 40-foot front porch for the ranch house, a massive kennel for the dogs, two new 1000-square foot warehouses, a half-acre garden. The list is as endless as the rest of our lives.

Oh, we plan on working on something else too… but we’ll let that be a surprise.
