Gopher Tortoise Day

Monday January 10th 2022

The weather pattern continued the slow change from warm and humid to cool and dry. It was sunny until late in the day when clouds started to filter into the area. Scattered severe thunderstorms were reported in the area. It stayed dry here, but the high seventies temperature dropped as evening approached.

I made a trip to Home Depot for some bolts and other stuff to complete the TV installation. As often happens with projects like this I didn’t get everything I need. I was so proud of myself for finding the exact bolts I was looking for in the Home Depot maze, I forgot to pickup an additional item I needed. Another trip is on tomorrow’s agenda for Locktite to keep the bolts from vibrating loose.

While I was out I stopped at Walmart to replenish my food supply. The shelves were not well stocked for a large Walmart. Several items I wanted were missing from the shelves. Why weren’t there any boxes of cornflakes on the shelves? Both Kellogg’s and the store brand were missing. Also, I couldn’t find any bagged yellow onions. There were plenty of loose onions. There were other things too, but these are the ones that stood out as particularly odd. Is it a supply chain issue or just low staff to keep the shelves stocked? It isn’t a significant impact to me. I have enough groceries for another week and a half or so.

I only got one walk around the park in today. The weather at the end of the day was blustery and cool. My walk was during the middle of the afternoon. After seeing my first Gopher Tortoise for this trip yesterday, I saw four more today. I don’t know where they’ve been hiding, but they were out today.
