The clouds over the desert are supposed to clear up this morning so hopefully Windy's battery will get a decent charge after that

Looks like you're hearing the repaired and relocated "ROcky" dasher unless my friend's (I thought) long gone ditter way up in the Inyo mtns and place 8 years ago is still alive...  if the dasher is synched with rainy sometimes it is Rocky. thanks man  - MB/SpM
