Yeah, well -- you don't have to drag the rest of us down with you ...

As of this Thursday, it will be over for me. I'll be in Kenya for a few weeks. It's their summertime there.

~90F every day with a chance of lions.

We may finally know the answer to "Does Peegoo taste like chicken?".

So -- who are you leaving in charge of the tech help desk while you're away?

I just shoveled 6" of heavy wet snow. It's only the third snowstorm here in SLC that required clearing. We're at 60% of normal precipitation so I hope winter carries on for another month.

I’ll go for that when I see the geese or the robins.

Meantime, I am hoping that this is right.

Woke up to snow on the ground yesterday morning. Forecasting mid-70s tomorrow and pushing 80 on Weds.

While we're enjoying sunny days, temps have dropped into the low 40s and strong winds ripped SoCal yesterday.

I woke up to 26 degrees this morning. Very cold for SoCal. As Jack said SoCal winds just ripped yesterday. I had to wind up all the patio shades as they were about to be ripped from their mountings.

It's supposed to be 60 daytime this week with the overnight lows right at freezing. My pigmy date palms might suffer and freeze. Possible showers on Thursday, We need rain badly. My part of town has had only 1.7" since last July. Normal is about 13" coming in the winter months.

It's 70 here in the DC area today. Blazing sun and it looks like a good day to go sailing on the bay.

I'll bet a lot of boaters are looking at their shrink-wrapped tubs and thinking really hard about it.

20degrees F this morning, was in the high teen's over the weekend. Hard Ice packed roads off the main drags and we still have March to go. 1-1/2 cords of split wood left, and 180 gals of #1 fuel in the tank I'm cutting it close.

That is it... March 7. They are here. Stepped outside for a moment and heard the geese. Looked up and there they were. First group this year. It is now official... Spring has arrived in the North Country no matter what the Nor’Easters are doing one after another.

By the way, we are due to be hit by the latest Nor’Easter over the next few days, but...

The Geese are here!!!

The geese have been on the move down here. Lots of Arctic birds- buffleheads, little auks, brant geese, among others- winter over here on the southern New England coast, but they start making their moves as the birds who have been farther south start moving up, like the red wing blackbirds, who appeared March 1. These big equinoctial storms either pull them up or keep them back.

Last few years there have been some snowy owls, also snow geese and sometimes more European birds that were blown off course and end up here. Tropical storms in the summer will often pick up more southern birds, like pelicans, and deposit them up here.

March and April are usually the snowy months up here in the High Rockies. Hope that holds true, because we've had very little snow so far, which means fire danger in the summer.

Everybody is hoping for a big 2' dump.

That said, I'm out the door right now to go skiing. There's enough snow for that up at el. 10,000.

This started me thinking. I usually see several large flocks of geese down here in my semi-rural area. Not a goose this year, not one. Very few ducks too. Must be the lack of water, they went somewhere else.

Have fun Ragtop, we got basically nothing in SoCal this year. Man-made at best, yuk.

Winter is officially over in Tampa Bay when the Canadian snowbirds from Quebec go home and the greens fees are halved. We have a couple months yet eh?

(Highs this week are low 80's but that isn't how we measure seasons here).
