His and her strawberries. First ones this year. There will be many more.

@ai6yr I ate just half of one of those and was full. Saving the other half for lunch. 🤡

Too funny. Can’t make this up.

Currently if King County WA needs to produce an evacuation map they only do so as a PDF. County emergency management (EM) staff says it would be very expensive to have county GIS staff produce an interactive evacuation map.

I volunteered to write data conversion code (geojson > kmz) so King County WA could use Google maps as an interactive evacuation map.

EM staff says policy prohibits them from using outside help that is not officially approved. So I contacted county procurement asking how I can get approved as a volunteer consultant. See pic for their reply.
🙄 🤦‍♂️

Local foodbank will get some of our primo organic lettuce today.

Went to the foodbank and made my pile of just-picked lettuce on one of the tables. I had quite a bit. Volunteer says "Did you grow all this"? 😲
Me: Well - I didn't steal it from the neighbors." 😁

@ai6yr Our foodbank is fairly local in downtown Redmond WA. I stopped on the other side of town for groceries.

Ugh, totally wasted open house. Lookee-loo City. I'm so glad this was our last one before we leave. The rest will be after, and the house will be vacant.

Sigh.

So, with that, I'll perk myself up (and hopefully you) with another dopey gif.

I can't believe it'll be a week from tomorrow!

Have a good evening, everyone!

@GottaLaff Once upon a time many years ago our house in Wyoming did not sell. We packed up and moved back to the PNW leaving an empty house behind. Eventually the house sold and yours will also.

1/_ 🧵 Many counties (including mine - King County WA) use the CodeRed system for alerting people about a wildfire evacuation. Recently I traded email with county staff and got some details about how this works.

If your county’s emergency management web page shows they use CodeRed then there should be a signup link. When you signup, enter your address or use the map by dragging the marker, zooming in and repeating until the marker is where you live.

If my area is ordered to evacuate then I want to get that message by every means possible. We have a landline so I entered our “Home phone” number, my cell number and my main email address that I check the most often.

Usually soggy King County WA (county seat - Seattle) is hiring for a Community Wildfire Protection Planner. Good! Nice to see local officials taking wildfire risk seriously.

Here is the latest look at the near Fort Nelson British Columbia. That town has been ordered to evacuate. The red outline is the perimeter as of early today but there is now a lot of additional satellite heat detections outside of that perimeter.

This would be a great deal for someone with need to build a garden bed, but the timeframes this person have in their post ("must be gone tomorrow", ie today) are RIDICULOUS (unless you live next door). Have you ever moved that much weight before?

@ai6yr

  1. Lift several blocks onto taligate
  2. Climb into truck bed
  3. Lift and place the blocks forward in the bed
  4. Climb out of truck bed
  5. Rinse and repeat

Got garden weather?
39 and rain near Redmond WA this morning.

Mini greenhouse has several kinds of onions grown from seed and ready to transplant, some carrots, lettuce, and two bell pepper plants. Spinach and radishes have already been harvested and those areas will be replanted with carrots, radish and onions. I am curious if I can get Walla Walla onions to mature planting as late as May 1.

The pic with the raised bed has Davidor Shallots on the left and Walla Walla onions on the right. The Wallas were planted last fall and overwintered in the greenhouse. In the background are strawberries, garlic and early potatoes.

Just sitting here minding my BBQ ribs and a swarm of bees showed up :shrug: - maybe they would like some smoked pork ribs?

@ai6yr If you could just distill that magic elixar and market it then you would be fixed for life. Assuming, of course, that there is a large enough market of folks that want random bee swarms to show up at their place.

To read NOAA’s forecast discussion, open the map, click inside any red-outlined area and follow the link. I expect the discussion for various forecast areas will be updated as the day goes on.

The shaded areas indicate where NOAA says severe weather is mostly likely to happen today.

Each time you open this map you will see any current warnings for tornados (red), severe thunderstorms (yellow) and flash floods (green). For details, click inside any outline and then follow the link.

You also will see the latest weather radar on top of the area with the greatest risk for tornados today.

About those phone apps that display property lines...

Popular apps that display property lines include LandGlide, OnX, Regrid and various others. All they do is display a copy of the parcel line data maintain by the counties. If the county parcel line data is bad then the same bad data is displayed by these apps.

The pic below shows a map I recently made for client using the surveyed description on the client’s deed. The black lines show the parcel line data from the county GIS server.

If this property owner was using a cell phone app instead of a custom map then they would never find their corner stakes.

@ai6yr Ha! Back in the day when I invested in vacant recreational property I once found 3 back lots of a river front subdivision that the developer never sold. And they were never put on the tax roll. Each lot was several acres. I tracked the developer down and bought a deed for not very much, got them on the tax roll and sold them.

@ai6yr I suspect the owner was compensated when access was cutoff.

Got swallow?

The swallows are back. Yea! 🥳 🎉

Both tree swallows and barn swallows nest in our neighborhood. We can sit on our deck and watch them make a touch-and-go over a small pond in our pasture to get a drink. Also, the barn swallows land in our garden to get dirt for their nest. Best part of all - very few mosquitoes at our place due to these mini jet fighters.
