Re: I was waiting for Aliens--- They're here!

Quite a few stories floating around about these pieces of 'art' are hilarious. A good distraction for folks who are obsessing over certain news item at the moment.

Re: Mindless chit chat

Lost another tree in the backyard with the winds this last weekend. Allergies (for me) have been the worst these past few days. Hopefully, we don't see temps in the 90s anymore. I am sure there will be some warm days in December. Probably back up to 85+ in January...

Re: Animal Battles

Some friends of ours in Ahwatukee filmed their outdoor cat killing a speckled, fairly similar behavior, even down the rolling around after it killed it. Neat video.

Re: sleeping bag purchase decsions

I have a UGQ Bandit that's rated for 30º and 0º, I really like both quilts. I have used the 0º bag in below freezing conditions twice and have no complaints. Good luck on your purchasing decision.

@Jim_H
Also located near south mountain... According to my weather station we've never dipped below 100º yet, maybe this next week, but I doubt it. Not looking forward to a January when it's still in the mid 80s and probably a few weeks where it reaches 90+.

What I am looking for is a bu...

Oxbow Fire

I was told they're roughly half a mile apart and burning on the northbound side of the 87 at MP 247. Not good.

Looking at historical data for Sky Harbor it appears we are in a similar pattern as 2017. Wouldn't be surprised at all to see 118+ before the end of this month.
