It was nice to sit in the backyard for a while this afternoon watching the palm fronds gently shake in the light breeze and to watch my feathered friends darting around from house to house, tree to tree. Seventy degrees feels a bit cool but still nice in the shade. These are iPhone 12 photos using its different zoom capabilities, not too bad, eh?
Around noon I headed out for a ride to see what wind damage has happened, all I found was this torn tree and the port-o-pooper blown over again at the park. I did see orange pumpkin balloons and other odd items blowing down the streets. Every time one of these storms blast through, I find odd items on my property and plastic bags stuck high in the trees. The house was seriously creaking this morning but this house has been here 25 years so it’s pretty tough!
A neighborhood with palm trees lining the streets. Did you know that palm trees are not native to the Las Vegas area? They do however grow very well here obviously and I’m grateful for that. It’s so nice to wake up and see palm trees in my backyard! Today we have a high wind advisory with gusts to 60MPH possible and a high temperature of 68F, brrr!
