We were in California last week and I was told by the locals we missed it (Spring that is).

So, what is he looking at?

He's looking at this. I think I'd be discouraged too.

But, the snow melts quickly and the farmers alfalfa field has turned into a wildlife refuge for ducks and geese.

We did manage to finish the expanded porch in the garage before we left and moved out the old water heater and installed a new one. The new hot water heater is larger and will eliminate the need for the second hot water heater currently located inside the house.

Roger put up the cross beams to support the solar panels. Until the panels were installed they looked like very sturdy clothes lines.

Assembled panels on the floor of the barn.

The WSU Rowing Team helped us out a couple of weeks ago and we now have all but one of the panels installed. We used that one as a display at the Palouse Home and Garden Show.

The Rowing Team was also very helpful in pounding in the posts for the deer fencing we need to install. The fencing will not only keep the deer, the coyotes and the bob cats out but will also keep the dog in. Now all we have to worry about is the owls with the 7' wing span and the raptors.

Panda has a lot of hair that makes her look larger than she really is so maybe they won't mistake her for lunch.

Some of the posts could not be pounded. One of the workers managed to remove 'a few' rocks. Now all that is left is to cement the posts in.

All of the rocks came from that two foot deep hole.

By the end of the day I think everyone was pooped.
