My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

Night of the Moth
Unusually HOT night last night, but that wasn't the only thing unusual! I woke up about 4:00 AM this morning because I was too hot to sleep. Got up and turned on the Swampie and ran it until about 5:30 until it cooled down enough for me to get back to sleep. During the time I was up I had the fly swatter in hand, but it wasn't to swat flies it was to swat moths. They were everywhere and evidently they aren't just attracted to light, but must also be attracted to body heat because they were swarming around me. I think I must have swatted 40 or 50 of them and there are still plenty in here for me to swat now. Just swatted about another 5. Not sure what the heck brought them here unless it was the heat and I still don't know how in the heck they got in here??? The flies are still bad and now moths. I wonder what next?
