    The two seasons we have are rainy and hot at the same time(really high humidity); and mild by our standards/hot by yours, and dry. Six months of each. The rainy season is also the hurricane season.

    Forth rail bridge. 123 years old still handles 190+ trains a day. 64,800 tons of steel used to make it, ten times as much as the Eiffel tower. 7 years to build. Cost the lives of 63 men and Outlasted the 1960's forth road bridge which is now being replaced. Cost £2.5 million in 1890. Pretty cool.

    The snails here in San Jose are quite impressive. I've taken quite a liking to the curious little critters.

    Sure beats the tarantulas in New Mexico!

    yes, those are morning glories. I was amazed how quickly they grey from seedlings just a few months ago. We moved into our new place in mid april. That's just two months of growth.



    the place really looked like a prison yard with the rocks and zero vegetation, but we've effectively changed that.

    everything here was seeded at the same time.



    i only regret that i never did get around the planting tomatos, which I've been saying i'm going to do for three years now.

    Mating cicadas



    Two-and-a-half-year-old triplets we met in the park, adoring the cicadas.

    Hey Gomango. Not sure of the weight but it was about 33 inches long, and heavy. Pic is when I released it. I caught it on this.
    What I call my "skinny" Clouser. Made with slinky synthetics instead of buck tail. Very small and sparse.
