My trees are budding out as of last week. I don't think this will hurt them. It's still in the 40s here.


I'm still using Windows 8! lol One of these days.....
So glad I delayed my trip to Zion NP planned for next week as I would be traveling through Arizona and Utah. Hopefully the weather will be nicer two weeks from now.

Been a busy day. Creek near my house is out of its banks. Moved everything out of basement as a precaution.

So rainy, cold and windy lately in Sun City West AZ! I do miss snow. Had a friend fix up boxwoods a few days ago - two bags of potting soil out in the rain last night. Unopened, should be okay.

Glad I didnít sweep up the grapefruit leaves! There are twice as many now.

The snow will be mostly gone in a few days. The next ten days look pretty good with blue sunny skies. The good thing about snow here is it's pretty but doesn't stick around. My roommate's boss has to drive down here from Flagstaff and didn't have any problems yesterday so I guess it wasn't 'that bad'.

Same here. The parks along the river are closed due to flooding.

Bright sunshine this morning and 15 degrees. Trail behind my place is dry, went for a nice 2 mile walk with my dog. Supposed to be near 60 with sunshine today, I might actually try to sit outside and read.

Yesterday was almost 60 degrees with some sun, today is 60 with sun. But later this afternoon, temps go down to 30'ish and rain and snow expected.


Tomorrow is the St. Patrick's Day parade with very cold and windy forecast.

It turns out the snow melt and rain are causing as many issues as snow and colder weather in the National Park that I am visiting. Rock slides, roads and trails washed out and closed, river overflowing, flash floods, etc. More rain predicted next week but I am going the following week so maybe it will dry up some. The good thing about retirement is that I can be flexible with my plans.

I have nieces and a nephew that live in Sioux Falls, SD and got sent pics of their flooding today. Holy cow!! I have pics we took at the Falls last July and it just looks like a huge river now flowing like crazy. One big bridge looks like it could go anytime. I've seen other places on the weather channel this week too. Looks like Indiana got hit pretty hard with flooding and a friend in Illinois is grateful to "live on a hill" with the river nearby.


Not exactly a peaceful coming into spring, huh?
