El Paso had March and April in May, June through July (hot), September in August, August in September, and now it’s September in October (heaven). As odd as that is, climate is what you expect and weather is what you get.
And the final part of a new project is going in. Photos from 10/2/2014 –
The weather everyone envies. Just don’t forget that scorpions, vinegaroons, diamondback rattlers, centipedes like it too!
The last part of the Sierra Providence East tower landscape is starting – the only lawn on the vast site, my alternate was approved.
We can see El Paso stands out as much warmer than even its neighbors. #UrbanHeatIsland…..nobody in the region measures anything remotely like that, except Phoenix and Las Vegas!
Perhaps this winter, I will see full, dormant grasses at least until spring, and shrubs left alone. Perhaps…
Meanwhile at the medical office building…
Older parts of the campus, designed years ago, are filling in. I was able to make contact with the owner’s architect, to initiate the process of improving their maintenance and plant health, while reducing unnecessary and counterproductive maintenance. I will take the maintenance plan I developed for the tower and ER expansion, and use that as a starting point.
At least the Torrey Yucca / Yucca torreyi and the Fouquieria are standing tall and happy, even some Echinocereus and Sporobulus are left. Yep, I need to make inroads on the maintenance. Can I?
