Speaking of diversity, we witness some incredibly diverse weather on this mountain. The high yesterday was 64º and the low was 34º. If there had been any precipitation in the air, we might have seen some flurries. I don't know if I could mentally handle flurries in July. So, thank goodness, it was just cold. I still have a hard time seeing hats and gloves in the middle of summer.
Ruthie is starting to train and learn the ropes. I think she is going to do just fine. She is learning the ways of the power tools and the incinerator. Although, I do think we are going to have to get smaller trash bags.
