A heat wave of upper 90s to low 100s was expected for Tucson Wed. thru Sat., so where do we head to prevent sweating through those miserable temps? The cabin of course. Took off Wed about 1pm and got up to the cool country at 4:30. This is our first trip since we closed the cabin last Thanksgiving weekend. The cabin endured the winter just fine, except the TV and receiver were on (probably switched on with power outages). Guess I need to unplug all the electronics even though we have surge protectors on them all.
After our walk Thurs. a.m., we started the yard cleanup, raking all the pinecones and pine needles in the front. Worked 4-5 hours and then finished up on Friday for a total of 17 big black trash bags full. The back will need to wait till our next trip. Jim cleaned out all the gutters before cleanup. Those pine needles love to stick in the gutters.
