The weather has been alternately cold, 30-35 degrees in the morning and 40-50 in the afternoon, windy with 40-50 mile per hour winds that blow dust everywhere, with overcast to sunny and partly cloudy skys. Just like in Texas, wait a while and the weather will change. Delta is beginning to experience fires due to the winds and dry conditions.
Sunrise now is about 4:30 AM and sunset at 11:00 PM. The 5 1/2 hours between are twilight, not dark. We are so tired at night that the lack of true night darkness doesn't interfere with sleep.
Then it's back to work cutting wind-felled birch trees and cutting them up for firewood.
