It's 36*F outside right now (Lubbock). I'm tempted to turn on the blacklight to see which "tough ones" are out and about, but that means I have to go outside too.

Not as tough as I used to be, apparently.

The Monarchs are Coming

Several of us here in Lubbock have noted the presence of numerous Monarchs migrating through our area. By "numerous," I mean "ridiculous amounts." I've lived here 3 years and the best year was 2015, with 20-25 gathered in trees as I was walking along the nature area at Dunbar Lake (Lake 6). This is substantially more than that. They were everywhere from about 5:00 - 7:00.

May they find their way into your neighborhood so that you may enjoy them, too.

Note: I spent late morning and most of the afternoon in Hale County, and saw nary a one.

Live Falcon Cam

Is anyone else obsessed with UT Austin's Live Falcon Cam? After numerous attempts to see "Tower Girl," the resident Peregrine Falcon, I finally got to see her today (@ 12:54PM).
