Actually it was a decent little rain in the afternoon, cooled everything off, and it seemed like it was enough to wet the beans and hopefully start them on their "trip" to become black and inedible for donkeys. But no........within minutes of the rain quitting, the sun came out bright and hot, the humidity must have been close to 100% and within 1/2 hour you couldn't hardly tell it had rained. This has been the weirdest monsoon we've ever had since we've been here. This week is suppose to be over 100* in Tucson every day, this time of year the temperatures should be heading for the low 90s by now.
I guess the fire in the Little Rincons is out. There was a facebook page to keep everyone up to date on how it was going. It hasn't been updated since the 22nd and we haven't seen any smoke, so I guess that's it. Yesterday John was under my race car and he heard 2 large claps of thunder that he said was REALLY close. He said it really got his attention, so he squirmed out (he hates my little cars, there's no room for wiggling) and came in the house and just beat the rain starting.
The reason he was under there is, the fuel pump had lost pressure it would still run, but had no power at all. He spent a lot of time under there while I was gone to Benson yesterday. When I came home he said the remanufactured fuel pump he just bought had less pressure than the one he took off. So he had to take it off again, and O'Reilly's is suppose to get a replacement in today. I hope so, I'm suppose to race Saturday night and we have 2 main events to run in one night. This car is such a basket case he keeps threatening me with parking it and racing the freshly built Cavalier. I just want to finish this season, hopefully in 5th place. I don't want to bring the Cavalier out and get it wrecked, then it wouldn't be pretty to start out next season. The car I was driving when I smashed my knee was 21 laps into it's 3rd race, so we didn't get much mileage out of it at all.......!!! LOL
Thanks for the pictures Linda
