Bring it, Got one more trip up north planned for some snowmobiling this weekend.
As for signs of spring, the dog had a tick on him this past saturday and i heard birds chirping outside the other morning. this sure has been an odd winter.
The urine in the subway does not smell like apple cider anymore.
Three of my best Buds wives are pregnant! And it wasn't even a cold winter............what were they thinking????
I'm guessing still around another month to go here till spring really kicks in, though the days are getting longer.
My folks up in Maine are still seeing below zero temps. Nothing like on the slope here though. Deadhorse was just over -50* today.
:bug: :lol: :exclaim:
No Robins here yet, but I'm burning Aspen during the day, sure sign of spring.
Is that your house?
Well . . . I think we're still a few weeks away from Spring up here . . . but the sap is running and we seem to have more hours of daylight and next month Town Meeting Season begins which is typically followed by the birds, flowers, pussywillows and Mud Season.
We've been having Robins on the fields and the frost heave signs are up. Our two miles of dirt road are like riding on rails during warm days(aka stuck in the ruts). Winter storm warning is up for today and tomorrow, now I have to go down to the barn and put the back blade on again. Only snow drops are coming up so far, still feels like winter.
Not in the LEAST looking forward to Mud. Always seems that that is when I need to work outside the most.
spring must be close...someone just tried to have a Red Sox conversation with me....baseball not really my sport.
see below sign.
Spectacular place indeed! Cheers!
This is the earliet I have ever seen the Jehovah's Witnesses out. Usually they wait until May to bother me. The Mormons can't be far behind.
It's 72 here and the ladies are out on the rye.
It was below zero here this morning. :lol:
Wow. Your ladies are lovely.
No sign of spring here. We just got a wet heavy snow a couple days ago, and are due for another starting this afternoon.
When branches start snapping off trees, does that mean spring is here. I'm trying to see the spring in things, but it's not working.
However, the forecast is calling for 50's by mid-month. We may just transition straight to summer.
The glass is half full, the glass is half full,..........
3 signs here:
1. My maple tree is spitting all over the windshield, a definite sign of running sap...
(Hmmm....Running Sap...wasn't he one of the HEKAWI tribe on "F Troop?")
2. Saw a Red Wing Blackbird yesterday in a swampy area, sitting on a cattail...
3. The Weeping Willows have started to turn golden & are the ONLY color other
than the dark grey tree trunks & dirty white snow that I can see out of my office
window...50 degrees & rainy tomorrow, may cause some buds to start appearing
on the end of the branches in my other maples...
Found the first 2 snakes of the season today. The first a big king laying up by the garage - I would have gotten a pic, but the dogs were harassing it and didn't want either it or the dogs getting hurt.
then a small dirt snake when I was scooping some leaves off the pool cover.
One of the guys I work with always has the old farmers almanac vague statements like - when the daffodils are blooming gotta watch out for the copperheads. Of course I inquired if copperheads liked daffodils :lol:
Foot a snow yestidey. Dag nabbit.
Dang. I want no part of that. Warming up now, so our snow will start going away. Stay warm. Rick
