Ice Icing

We have so much ebb and flow of temperatures and winds here. We had a ton of snow before the new year and then we had periods of melting and blowing and melting and blowing. Our daytime moisture gets blown around at night and sometimes freezes like a glaze over everything. Here the moisture froze over a cavity in the snow.

Anybody Want to Buy a Truck?

Fort Lewis Mesa Fire Protection District is retiring their old 6x6 Brush Tanker 74. This beast will go anywhere but unfortunately needs a fair amount of repair work and the department is unwilling to invest in it any longer. It's a monster.

My Thugs

These pictures certainly weren't from today... today was neuter day for both the pups.

These were taken in August on the La Plata River. As you can see, the dogs were quite inseperable.

Station View

Looking to the north from the fire station I have this picturesque view of a bright orange windmill and an abandoned building.


Driving to and from work I pass some pastureland with trees along the fence-row. The trees are apricot trees and this year the fruit was luscious. We must've had just the right combination of temperatures and moisture to allow the trees to become laden with sweet, juicy fruit.

Firehouse Debris

I'm not sure what this is. It caught my eye while out walking the dogs. I thought it might be some sort of hose, but I'm not sure.
