We're not that far away from you. We are already seeing buds on bushes and crocus coming up.

Oh dear. That is not good. They did mow the lawn last week here. And the maple sap has started to run. That is not a good thing.

Beautiful, partly cloudy day. It's 61, but with the wind out of the ESE, the windows are open again.

44, and beagle and I are going for a walk. The winter aconites are abloom, and my daffodils are showing buds here along the river.

Woke up & had to scrape the windows on the car before leaving for work today. It warmed up to 39F for a high today. It's 36F now. Not a cloud in the sky. A beautiful sunny day in SE S.D.

In the high 30's low 40's. We desperately need rain. We have had less than a half inch all winter. I hope we don't get a spring frost or snowstorm. The temp is supposed to go up to the 60's this week. That means the trees will start budding and with a frost or snowstorm, a lot of the trees will be damaged.This no snow all winter has us sitting on pins and needles waiting for it to happen.
