So, we're having what Grandma calls a cool snap! Highs in the low 70s/lows in the mid 40s for a few days. That will be a nice breather!

I can actually walk outside today!
It snowed this morning. It's up to 43* now. The low 70's sounds awesome!

Yeah it is still spitting a few flakes now and again here, but it is warming up and the snow we did get overnight is almost gone. We are up to 36 today so not too far behind you guys. We are so close to the 200" mark, we just NEED to break it. Can't get this close and not make it you know. NEVER thought I would be saying this in April, but we really need another 2.8" of snow to fall this season.

My Dw [ever the frugal housewife] insisted that last week with the high temps, it was time to shut-off our household radiant heat system.

So I shut it off Friday [11 April].

This morning as we were preparing to go to church we could see each other's breath in our living room.

Dw brought home goodies from work tonight [as she commonly does].

Now we have a table covered with whole pineapples and cantaloupe.

KAF! Starwalker! K! TxMom! Anyone else in the area!

Does anyone want a dozen pineapple? How about some cantaloupe?

I can eat one or two cantaloupe, but I seriously doubt that I can eat twenty of them before they go bad. Any of this that is not eaten will go to the chickens. [Our chickens do love all this fruit].

Do you guys want any of this?

I will be glad to stop by on my way back from Bangor today. My meeting with the new client got moved from 3 to noon (he had double-booked himself... no wonder he needed an admin coordinator, eh? ) and I don't want nearly ripe fruit sitting in the BLACK Subaru in the sun for hours, as I know this will be a longish working meeting, plus I have PO and Staples runs to do.

If KAF doesn't get over, or you talk to her and she wants to save on the gas, I will be glad to deliver her lot on the way back from town as well; I have her mason jar to return, so a visit to her place (I get to see her KIDS!) is on the list for the return trip too...

OK, gotta post this here too, since the non-hunters (and those who would like to arm the deer) probably didn't see it, and would probably find it very funny:

Deer Gets Revenge on Hunter

Most of the cantaloupe is going to the chickens.

Dw has filled our dehydrator [a 4 foot tall cabinet I made].

I am juicing the remnants of the pineapple this evening.

Default Hometown hero!!

If you saw this morning's news there was a story of an elderly man who was awakened by 4 men standing 10 feet from his bedroom, discussing what guns to steal. He pulled on his pants, grabbed his pistol off the nightstand and confronted the punks. These guys bolted for the door they had just kicked in and ran for their truck. This 75 year old gentleman stopped by my place this morning and said the only reason he didn't shoot them in the house, was the fact he wouldn't be able to live there with the mess! The police caught these NH residents 5 miles down the road, recovering 10 firearms belonging to my friend. They confessed to a three week crime spree in the towns of Upton, Andover and Newry which the police are investigating now.
Yep, don't mess with our senior citizens because the consequences aren't in your favor!!
His brother is going to the tow yard this morning to see how many times his brother hit the truck.

Wow, this was bottom of page two!

Well the river is breaking up around here finally, and the watch begins for those who live right by the river. The Ice dam is quite large that is slowly moving down stream. A bit wet in some areas, but not as bad as it could have been this year. We will see what happens tomorrow if we get the ran they are predicting. At least it doesn't look like a repeat of a few years ago when Fort Fairfield was under 10' of ice and water downtown. Here is the National Weather Services report for my area.
