Observations and occasional comments about San Diego county weather - nature - and the world around us.

The thing about work lately - if it's not new equipment on loan to check out - it's lots of people calling in sick.... What's up with kids these days?? Well, not all kids but...
But I digress ;-)
Quick update about 'electric' car for those who wanted occasional news. 2200 miles on the speedo, no trip to the gas station yet and 3/4 of original tank that holds 10 gallons.
This photo shows something that amuses me - lower left corner shows what the car thinks is has for all electric range. The window sticker/gov spec is 53 miles (your mileage may vary) . I've gone 6 miles and car thinks I can go 76 more, hmm..
So on to the new (Ne) blog.
BC might recognize this view if she popped by for a visit ;-)
Weekend before last we hiked a bit along the north shore of Lake Hodges, one of several smallish drinking water reservoirs in San Diego county. And it actually looks a bit like a lake after 4 or 5 really dry years.
Besides the exercise, I was hoping to get a few good bird photos. Hmm, very few and not the best shots - but some ;-)
I could hear them but took a while to see them! Was not good at sneaking so most swam away before I could get a photo, but here is Mr Mallard.
This is a little blown out, but this old snag was a gathering spot for woodpeckers, 4 or 5 were at the top, sort of got the two on my side.
This little kestrel was playing hide n seek with us for a while.
It finally came out for a little better shot.
This local park is open for regular business during fishing season - which is not for another month so we had to leave the car out on city streets and hike much farther to get to the lake than expected and it was a late start. We will be better prepared next time ;-)
And of course ;-)
