Not much blog worthy happened today. The bright blue sky with only a little wind allowed the temperature to reach the mid 80s. Tomorrow is forecast to be the last comfortable for a while. Starting Wednesday the high temperature is forecast in the 90s and by the weekend the 100s. I’m not looking forward to it.
In addition to my two walks, I took up train car counting today. During breakfast for some reason I found myself counting the cars on a westbound train across the field to the north of the park. I lost count around one hundred cars on the four engine train. The fact that I lost count caused a minor obsession to find the next train to count. I watched most of the day, but never caught another one from the beginning. I notice the trains more at night. The sound of the train whistles and rumbling carry better in the still night air.
