The electrical distribution system has always been a mystery to me, but it is capable of becoming even more mysterious.

The View from Mudsock Heights: It's Time Once Again to Do Something About the Wasp Nests

By Dennis Dennis | Jun 10, 2009 at 17:58

It looks to me as if this is going to be a banner year for wasps. I知 no expert, but the population of paper wasps seemed higher the first few warm days than it was any time last year. And this year they seem kind of berserk.

One thing the flatlanders have on us is thunderstorms. Not that we don’t have them, but the hills keep us from enjoying them as much. And as a thing of beauty, a good, big, hot-day thunderstorm is without parallel.
