    Looks like spring is starting :)

    Well woke up with wild winds this morning but to my delight the geese have arrived back in flocks. Not long and winter will be outta here.

    Looks that way, got 50's - 70's all week here. Checked the NOAA site earlier this week and they were predicting the La Nina effect should level out by summer, possibly putting us back into normal seasons again.

    No, the 'mini' ones, but the full sized ones are up and growing, too - they're bigger/higher than the daffodils and tulips right now.

    Snowing outside right now. Northern Michigan got buried with 20" snow yesterday. In one county all the roads were officially closed. This was on top of freezing rain so there is lots of trees down blocking the roads and knocking power out for 1000's of folks.
    I'm a certifiable tree hugger. (it's a poor mans way of determining DBH before cutting the tree down)
