Jeanette, I meant to comment on that the other day, but one thing and another kept getting in the way. (Life happens.) I'm pretty sure it's a lubber grasshopper, though I don't know what variety. I Googled images, but my connection is really slow so didn't find an exact match. This one is the closest so far.

I was clueless, so I didn't even guess. That is a very good picture!

So how cool are the nights up there now? Ours aren't cool enough yet to turn the AC off :(

SwampAngel, it was in the upper 40's a couple nights, but it's back up now, so the AC is back in service. This is the time of year we get a few cool days, then back to the 90's, then cool, then hot again. Can't wait for continual cool. It's in the 70's tonight.
