Interesting you should mention "El Horno". I'd never heard of it; but the Sales/Marketing/Community Involvement guy that our company hired actually moved here when he retired out of his last post - as SSM* at Pendleton. He'd been posted here a couple of times (MAWTS-1 and the old 2nd LAAMB; knows a few of my Jaycee buddies from the Corps); and the other day he saying that the climate was often nicer here than in some parts of Pendleton - except for last week!. He obviously spent waaaaaayyy too much of his hitch in offices if he thought last week was out of the ordinary - it had only gotten up to 118* before the storms blew in Thursday night Still Dreamin' EDIT: Hijacking the thread back! I've got the ice dumped in the gutter and the blue fuzz vacuumed off the beach. Couldn't find enough grenadine for a gutter-sized Tequila Sunrise; but a truck just dropped off 1000 gallons of Lime Juice and 100 lbs of salt! Anyone for a swim in a big margarita?
