This ain't right!
Yesterday was the first day of spring. Beautiful, 60 degrees, spring was really in the air. This is what I woke up to this morning!!
Oh, you poor thing! Up here in North East Minnesota, we are suppose to get around 4" of snow. Otherwise we were in the high 40's and up to 50 degrees for almost 2 weeks. We already know that spring isn't here, it's the Law that it has to go back to winter. Even in the last few weeks of April.
I spent all my years when I was young wishing I was older. Now I spend all my years when I'm old wishing I was younger....
Same thing here in Maine.. Sap is running, Robins have arrived, temps getting up there where you can actually enjoy being outside without 3-4 layers of clothes... BOOM.. 4-6 inches coming tonight & into tomorrow!
Oh Well.. It won't be long before we have Blackflies & tourists to complain about..LOL
It's not the "class of license" that an amateur holds..
It's the "class of the amateur" that holds the license.
Must be headed from the Pocono's up to Maine, Hopefully the last one for this year!
We had a couple inches of rain starting shortly after we arrived home yesterday from the dog show.

I saw the map. Yesterday, at the time of the Vernal Equinox, it was 70 +/- degrees--and there was a cold front on the way. So the storm that rolled through at 1:00 this morning was the official first thunderstorm of Spring 2011.
I awoke in a mid-sleep roll and noticed flashing. At first, I thought it was a static discharge between the dissimilar fabrics of the bed covers. And when I heard the thunder, I was still just asleep enough to think for a mere second, "I never noticed that before. I better be more careful when I roll or that noise will wake her [my wife] up."

Ham Radio, Amateur Astronomy, and Model Airplanes - what better way to spend some time!
No time is ever wasted that is spent LEARNING something !
Don't worry, we had SNOW here in San Diego too last night. But, it was at 6000 ft. Maybe down to 4000 ft.
Northwest NJ got the same snow that hit WA8UEG. Second day of Spring, and we got 4 inches of snow. School is closed, yet another snow day to make up. More snow is predicted for Wednesday, with low temps around 20 degrees for the end of the week.
The snow is my fault - I put the snow blower back in the shed. Good thing I didn't take the snow tires off of the cars, or we would have 2 feet of the white stuff!
It was 70 degrees last Friday. So much for Spring.

Had our first T-banger in West Michigan last night. It's supposed to 'ice pellet' tomorrow and the next day. I finished the turn signal project on my Harley this weekend. I might just go for a short blast before I have to put it up again.
"The best number is 73. Why? 73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror (37) is the 12th and its mirror (21) is the product of multiplying, 7 and 3. ... In binary, 73 is a palindrome, 1001001 which backwards is 1001001."
-Dr. Sheldon Cooper, (Jim Parsons), "Big Bang Theory"
"Just to invite your attention to "73" in Morse code--also a palindrome."
