    woo hooooo!

    We had some optimistic flowers and trees here a week or so ago and now thier lovely flowers are wilted and lying on the ground.

    I have been watching the squirrels take some fairly large things up the trees from my perch in the LR which looked sortof like a breaded tenderloin. I kept wondering what the heck it was until finally I realized it was flower bulbs. Yikes! The little bastaerd!

    Here in Oregon, sunny here on Sunday and rain today. At least the temperature is starting to moderate and the Daffodils are in bloom.
    I did get the '55 President out yesterday and took the wife to breakfast.

    Having ventured into the Northern territories before, which 2 weeks is summer scheduled for this year?

    Thinking about the optimistically "Early" flowers...just after dawn on March 9, on my way to the York, Pa. swap meet, I was on Interstate 77 near the Va., N.C., state line. At the North Carolina Welcome Center, the median of the highway was awash in a sea of proud bright yellow daffodils. As many of you in attendance know, that Thursday, there were 70 degree temperatures close to York. The next morning, we awoke to sideways snow. The snow was soon gone, but the cold rushed in and lingered. Friday turned out to be much better than the morning snow indicated. I got in a full day of fellowship & parts shopping.

    The next morning, I decided to head home instead of going back to the swap meet. My only stop on the way home, was to get gas, at Fort Chriswell, Va. After leaving I-81 headed south on I-77, I again saw those pretty flowers at the N.C. welcome center. I think the cold front followed me all the way home. I awoke to sideways snow 587 miles south of York, Pa. I'd be really impressed, if those flowers survived the high mountains of that N.C., Va. area.

    The weather report from south of the equator, well for 3/4 of the east coast of Australia is torrential rain! A week or so ago the newspapers were saying Autumn had been cancelled because of the prolonged summer. So we should have realized that after relentless humidity we would be in for some rain! It's been a week and a half now and I'm over it ! Bring on Winter.

    Not to dampen your post John, but I just returned home to BC yesterday from 97F Arizona. I am now dealing with several feet of snow! AND it is coming down as we speak.

    At least, according to the calendar, it is spring. But, even though only a few days ago, while it was still very cold here, the mocking birds, bluebirds, cardinals, and others, were already singing their "spring" songs. Even the flying vermin known as European starlings, have their beaks changing color, from the winter black to warm weather yellow.

    Anyway, you have not "dampened my post." After returning home from errands today, my poodle walked out to the pasture with me. Lifting his little leg next to my gate...he was the one who dampened my post. Today started out beautiful. Temps reached into the 80's. Then, about 5pm, over the mountains thunderstorms come tumbling in. It is still raining, but for a while, there was heavy hail, lightening, and a lot of wind. Just as various birds around here are fighting over "territory," so is Spring & Winter. I'll have to wait 'till dawn to survey what has been blown away by the wind, flooded by the rain, and beat into the ground by the hail.

    Regardless...Spring has arrived, and I hope some of us can move on from the "cabin fever" that seems to proliferate and amplify on the forum every winter.
