Spring

Where did spring go? March was warmer than April so far. Trees trying to bloom with snow on them, what has happened to mother nature? Fishing on Lake Erie has been next to nothing due to high winds, high water levels and cold temps. Maybe we will just move into fall early which would suit me just fine.

speaking softly as I say this, I think Mother Nature is a little Tipsy......

SouthEast Alaska stole your spring. Bwah, ha, ha! It's been mid-50's, sunny, flowers and trees are budding, robins are already back, birds are coming back to nest, and I may mow my lawn in April for the 1st time in recorded history. Usually I don't have to until late May, or June.

I think we had a sum-total of 8" of snow this year. That's great news for my back, but bad news for the hydroelectric facility as it means the snow pack melt will be less, signaling an early kick over to diesel-electric power generation, and therefore higher electricity costs.

Ha! No sooner did I type my earlier reply, than yesterday we got 2" of rain during the day. Well suited to have it run-off here, but makes ya want to snuggle up and watch movies all day. Which is what I did.

I hope west Texas is also getting some rain

I know east Texas is flooded but wasn't west Texas stuck in a drought for several years? It would be nice if west Texas is getting some extra rain they could use it.

I made a big pot of stew and let it simmer all day.

It's perfect for those grey dreary days...

Hopefully venison stew! Although I have some caribou that I was gifted that I need to look into turning into a roast or chili.
