My driveway is like a small stream! the water is running right down it from the thaw. I ran out to the store for a couple of things. On the way back a boy of about 14 was walking in the middle of the road, listening to his IPOD. He was looking at the screen and didn't see me coming. As we live on a very narrow road and there are kids in the neighborhood I am aware to look out so, I stopped the car and waited. When he looked up he was startled, he walked to the side, I passed and waved. A little while later he knocked on my door to apologize. I was so thrilled I never asked his name. I will if I see him again. It made my day.

This is crazy. I'm sweating in a T-shirt outside. This kind of weather is fine for late spring or early summer, but I want winter back!!!

T-shirt my butt. It's still too cold for that . Of course, I think that anything below 80 is cold. I'm still wearing my union suit, a wool shirt and a sweatshirt...but at least it *is* warm enough to do a little work on the truck (replacing sprung hood hinges).

When you move here you will be able to where that outfit 2 to 3 weeks out of the year. But keep it handy because you never know when it will be and then it's gone.Ya need to invest in some thermals!

Worked in a t-shirt again today, have to love it. Outside all afternoon and it was so nice. Even the sprinkles of rain that blew by once in a while were not too cool. Zymer, you will get used to it. This is so very warm for this time of year it is crazy.

I got the chicken coop re-built, and a shelter built over our propane tanks. I can't get the little bit of old tubing out from the flare nut, and now it is dark. I will finish tomorrow. It should not take long to re-flare the copper tubing and re-connect the propane line.

It was mostly T-shirt weather here today. I wore a raincoat as I was mostly underneath the eave drip-line. So I was being dripped on a lot. Though I was very sweaty.
