P (ost) h (ole). D (igging). again

I am now back in Arivaca, AZ. For the past two days I have been toiling on the ranch. Yesterday, I put in some new fence posts to tighten the barbed wire around the perimeter. While I was gone in California some cows wandered onto my uncle's property. They have free range grazing for cattle in Arivaca. Today, I worked on refilling with dirt a ditch next to the house that resulted in the guest room flooding last year. In the next few weeks I will have alot of physical labor to perform before we get hit with the monsoon rains. We already had one big rainstorm yesterday.

It could be worse, ever try digging post holes in a recent lava flow?

No, I have never dug in recent lava flow. The work is not too bad. I do it the morning before it gets in the hundreds and drink alot of water.
