It has been raining for the last couple of hours (first rainfall in several months) and the smell of creosote is very potent. It smells similar to sage, which happens to be one of favorite smells. All the folks out here who are catching their own water are very satisfied right now.
For those of you who have bookmarked www.earth-language.com, I am working on fixing the forwarding. I recently changed domain hosts and so there is a bit of a lag. I also purchased www.earthlanguage.net, which will probably become the default domain name for this blog. Feel free to bookmark it. I tried to purchase earthlanguage.com awhile back, but there is a cybersquatter who owns it and wants $10,000 for it. earthlanguage.NET comparatively was a bargain at only $12.99 .
