light drizzle again this morning. 7am.

sprinkled for a few hours real light. most rain in a long time but really little. Maybe 1/8 of an inch. and cloudy and overcast all day.

The other day on the road over the mountain it was raining where I had to turn on windshield wipers. at the top where it was paved, and coming down on our side where it is not paved just a light drizzle for half the way down. I am sure that was good for the dirt compacting. No runoff but it was getting damp .

a very light rain/sprinkle in the evening, all surfaces are a bit more than damp, and a little , and mean little pubble run off.. not really measurable in the buckets sitting out and so no worries of mosquito hazards created.

the road construction on the mountain is proceeding, they are ripping up the bad parts near the top of our climb of the mountain now. they only have about 1 miles of the bad part left. No additional final paving has been started.

Very humid last night and today, tropical storm Frank is to be a hurricane in the next couple days, the bad news is it is not heading out to Hawaii like the other have, it is coming to the familiar path closer to baja.

went to costco, amazing how much big time construction on the major road on the beach side from San Jose to Costo area, counted about 7-9 major developments with huge cranes in action. Never seen so much construction going on at once down there.

The road is paved from Los Planes till about 1 mile before our turn off.

some raindrops from one of the two tropical storms... Well Blass is a hurricane as of today i think. not coming our way.

no major additional paving as of last weekend, though could see some markers being inserted that will guide the paving truck in the center of the road.

the road paving construction on the mountain road seems to go at least all the way into Los Planes to where it has the divider and street lights.

They actually paved a section yesterday between the T intersection to San Antonio towards Los Planes about half a mile. It was not paved in the morning when I went to Santiago waterfall (the kids did not have school) and when I returned about 7pm it was paved. No other paving has occurred in a month just road prep. So maybe they are entering road pave mode.

that tropical depression is making the airflow come from the mainland so super humid yesterday and today.     Still not as bad as last year can tolerate it with a fan during the day and last night had to use the AC.

it is so humid it is unreal, like being in florida in the summer... power just went off for 5 minutes.... got to test my power back up system, worked great, just for computer.

Here is a picture as you get on the road to LaPaz as you get past the T intersection.     and one up the mountain.   About 2/3 of the hill on our side is like this, it is easy to drive on this.     And as I mentioned at the top of the mountain they have paved from the eagle rock about 3 miles of the real curvy sections.    So nice up there.   I have not gone the los Planes direction to see how far they have progressed there.

you can see a section they have not dug up near the top, about 1 miles. i assume they will be doing that section as it is now really bad with pot holes.

I took some pictures of the mountain road construction today. The dirt road was actually real nice no off- side road driving. It appears they are letting us drive on it to pack it? and or they will do a massive paving at one time of 7 or so miles and counting. I will post the pictures soon.

FYI montana will not allow us to register vehicles there unless you have a address or declare yourself homeless in person.    

South Dakota has on their books that you can.

also have not been using the AC much lately. Turned it on for about 4 hours in the evening. Slept with just a fan and day was real nice too. So far only a handful of days have I needed the AC. Vs last year everyday and night in the summer.

the roadwork is now towards Los Planes (do not know how far) continued,  to about half way to 2/3 up the mountain.  They finished the 5 mile section as I noted before from the top eagle on.    and another 1 mile stretch that was bad.    They had been working on several section and looked like they were ready to pave and all the sudden now the entire section up to 2/3rds  is in process now.    

I am guessing Sat and specially Sunday are the only times to be on the road else you have a lot of work being done is my guess.

nice this morning and humid this afternoon, turned the AC on at 3pm where the last few weeks did not use it till sleep time and several nights did not need it.

very very encouraging results on my concept of a one way static trap. I am able to allow new born mosquitoes to go past the trap one way, and they can not exet the return way. 100% on two types of traps so far. still need a few more days of testing to see if they get smarter over time. Next I have to try this on mosquitoes that are resting during the day and night. and mosquitoes who have blood and may be a bit larger looking for water.

So I need more containers 1 gallon clear like i have pictured. anyone have some I can have?

soo nice, I needed to put a jacket on this morning.    Appears we received about 1/8 of an inch of rain at my location overnight.


9pm seems we have a low pressure way down south with 70% forecast to be a storm.  No idea which way it would go.

I have some mosquitoes finally hatching from my turtle water.... First one today. He made it through a tough trap, i am impressed. the big question is can he make it out? I post the details of my testing in my mosquito section.

a few rain clouds this morning dripping a little rain. Nothing that even pooled. been humid for about a week now.

was in LaPaz yesterday, the road over the mountain they have a section that is about 5 miles paved now on both sides. It is from the top where the curves start heading to LaPaz all the way to where the old rumble strips were. Really makes this section that use to be the most dangerous, curves and such such a nice section, they have about 100 meters left on this section to pave of this section, they had finished a section from when i drove in to returned.

They have very recently ripped out another 1 km section of the road so they are continuing on and have another couple mile section that are close to being paved.

There was a plan to do this years ago. A few stages with first stage is a plaza, next is a hotel, and then homes behind all of that. Not sure if they have the money for the first stage.
