What a truly great last day of September it is in Oklahoma. The cool front and the rain came as predicted. We’ve had about just under an inch so far at my official Deer Creek Weather Station. Brand new rain gauge and everything after I accidently destroyed the one my wife bought in May with a weed-eater. It can happen. She gave me that same look way back when I almost caught the outdoor sofa on fire smoking a Dominican cigar.
I do not drink coffee in the summer. This was my first official autumn cup of coffee and it was a perfect fit to today’s beautiful weather.
We missed the 3-4″ precip just two miles to our southeast, but still an inch is much appreciated after going completely rainless out here for the first twenty-nine days of September. We would have gone 0.00 as far as September precip if not for this morning.
Saw on the local news there was a mountain lion spotting in Luther. I totally believe it since Pauli and I spotted a mountain lion at dusk on the forest ridge of our property about three years ago.
Some of the neighbors out here thought I was becoming senile until the big cat showed up on my neighbor’s camera at night in his backyard.
Pauli’s was sitting next to me when they were talking about this on the news. It’s almost as if she knew what they were talking about. The fur rose on her back…kid you not. Prolly have to walk her along the ridge at dusk this evening to calm her down before Thursday Night Football.
When she saw that mountain lion she was like White Fang with the grizzly bear. Swear to God. The dog is fearless.
What a great day to listen to music and stalk a mountain lion with your alpha champion diva lab.
This is prolly what we’ll listen to just about 7:15 pm as we prepare for the hike-expedition. Pauli loves this. It gets her stoked like Rocky running those stairs. No gun. We just want to see him again. Maybe he’ll eat my little MAGA neighbor at some point. Just kidding. Seriously…I was kidding.
