Beautiful Summer Preview Before Spring Returns Morning Coffee Muses

Beautiful Summer Preview Before Spring Returns Morning Coffee Muses

It’s quieter than usual out this morning. The cottontail managed a quick escape this morning… from a hawk gliding in low over the yard. I don’t think the cottontail was the main target , I think the hawk thought he had a squirrel on the ground. In my book the hawk can cull the squirrel population all he wants. They’ve been growing way too numerous these past few years…

The neighborhood pileated woodpecker is announcing his presence this morning. Moving through the little patches of woods that still border Mustang Bayou. It’ll be a sad thing when the woods are gone and so is the pileated.

The prognosticators are foretelling of a chance of rain when the cool front come thru. My worry this time of year is that the weather oracles will miss and the front will stall in Conroe. I mean, come on, I’ve been anticipating the two days of 50 degree mornings for a week now. Now don’t get me wrong, it won’t (or at least isn’t supposed to) actually reach 50 . But it will be in the fifties, upper in the morning and lower on Monday. A good fifteen degrees cooler than mornings for the last little while.

It’s that time of the morning, the Wal-Mart gulls are changing parking lots. They are actually laughing gulls but around here we only see them in the big parking lots. Every day a few or a lot will fly over the house coming from somewhere and heading somewhere else… laughing as they go.

Another cup of Joe is calling my name…

    1. Wow, even in the fall I almost never see Kerrville that cool. And the summers we used to camp along the river… even the water was never that cold. Enjoy yourself Linda.
