Monsoon in Portal
We've been getting some wonderful monsoon rains here in Portal. Last week at our house we had 2.1 inches in just 4 days. Last night we had a gentle rain all night long 'til 7am this morning. Got another 3/4 inch of rain in the last two days. The creek is running again and things are greening up. The insects are really active. I watched a bunch of Dung Beetles clean up one of Mr. Browns poop piles! I'd been looking for the dog's poop so I could clean it up, and I hadn't found any in a few days. Now I know why! The Dung Beetles have been cleaning it up before I can get to it! I was amazed at how fast they cleaned up the whole pile! Check out this short video of their super strength and endurance!
Bud & I bought our dream house in Portal in December 2013 and find ourselves in a heaven on earth in this beautiful friendly community.
