I tried to find some corned beef and hash to celebrate St. Patricks Day at a local restaurant but it was damn near impossible to find...

What with all the raids on the cannabis operations here- hash is all about non-existent now!

Coffee's on.

Chilly out this morning, after having so many warm days. It's currently 12 degrees. It's been spitting snow for the last 2 days. It's actually starting to stick again.

We got up an hour before the sun and did chores and ate breakfast. When the sun came up, we were in the field ready. We hayed until we couldn't see anymore and then went home and did chores and had supper. Usually went to bed as soon as the dishes were done. Didn't even use a clock.

I don't use an alarm clock. I get up between 5 and 5:30. When DST hit, it took me about 3 days and now I'm getting up between 5 and 5:30.

It is kind of nice to have lots of sunshine left over after a work day so a person can have some time with family and friends.
Here's the short story: "Daylight Saving Time has been used in the U.S. and in many European countries since World War I. At that time, in an effort to conserve fuel needed to produce electric power, Germany and Austria took time by the forelock, and began saving daylight at 11:00 p.m. on April 30, 1916, by advancing the hands of the clock one hour until the following October. Other countries immediately adopted this 1916 action: Belgium, Denmark, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Turkey, and Tasmania. Nova Scotia and Manitoba adopted it as well, with Britain following suit three weeks later, on May 21, 1916. In 1917, Australia and Newfoundland began saving daylight."

So it's been off and on since 1918 in the U.S. except during WW2 when the president made it year round to save energy.

Well, it's plain the whole world is bad at math.

Speaking of numbers, the forecast missed by 20 degrees ... down to 26F here this morning, which might be a record for this time of year. Usually our last hard freeze is in mid-January.

You've probably told us at one time or another, but I can't remember. What elevation are you? Where I'm at is only 3960 ft which is pretty low by Wyoming standards. Course, I can go 10 miles and be at 9,000.

In the middle of my forehead; isn't yours??

I'm at 2495 feet... well, to be accurate the ground is 2495 feet above sea level, and I'm at zero absolute altitude.
