    Spring is here ......

    Well came in from the shop this evening to start the Family Day BBQ and what do you know the first of a couple of doves have arrived. I dont know if they were in a hurry to get mating or just flying from tree to tree because they were cold. But they sure are the first signs of spring. I hope these idiots survive the night because it aint warm out there tonight.

    Anyone else up in our elevations seen any birds or others arriving yet.?
    cheers

    We've got doves year-round, and just this morning I saw a robin - in the snow! Spring doesn't really get here until the juncos leave, though. They winter-over here.

    Spring ain't here yet. We've got about 5" (and still coming) of fresh snow on the ground, and it's supposed to go down to 14°F tonight.

    Saw three robins yesterday. Something is up. However, just as I get excited about spring, the truth is that winter will reel one final rage against us. Last year, we didn't get spring until June, so not holding my breath.

    It was here also. It left today.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Watching my snow melt is like studying an ancient ice core. I can see the history of the whole winter.

    Hey look, there's the chains I lost!
    There's the layer of sand and salt I tossed down in December.
    I was wondering where THAT shovel went.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Winter is over. Our brief spring has sprung. Here's a shot from work during Spring Break (no students). That's about it; on to summer . . .

    Well it left the great white north in a hurry. We had a significant snow storm today. Lasted most of the day.
    cheers
