Last night was the beginning of Elephant Days here in Elephant Butte and unfortunately it was the beginning of the rain that has lasted all night and is still falling. The rain brought with it a cool front and after weeks of 100+ degree temperatures it is currently 58 degrees and that makes it pretty uncomfortable for someone who's blood has been thinned by the high temperatures. The weather has literally put a damper on the Elephant Days activities and the highlight event, the balloon ascension was cancelled.
Today I have some sleep to catch up on so it's just as well we have a gloomy day. The Cardinal game last night was delayed 2.5 hours by rain and then went thirteen innings before the Cardinals managed to loose, so it was 2:30 am before I hit the sack. Maybe a nap will be in order shortly. Yes, siestas are a part of enjoying the good life.
