Yesterday I spent the day burning brush around my older sisters place, then last night I relaxed and watched baseball. This morning, having coffee and reading the paper, then after renewing my stupid Colorado $46.00 fishing license, I'm going trout fishing.

Default Interesting new thread in the Ecomics Forum

There is a new thread in the Economics Forum entitled "The great senior housing sell off". It's a link to a Chicago Tribune article which contains an interview with an urban planning professor who thinks that there will be a glut of houses on the market by the end of the decade as boomers reach their late 60's and put their homes on the market in order to downsize. He believes that there will not be enough buyers for those houses. Worth a look if that's a topic which interests you.

Sleeting here this morning! I am at the mountain house, hubby is at "home" this week. I stayed here after Easter to get workmen lined up over the next month and not one has returned a call. Not good.

The roofer had an appointment to do an estimate last Thurs but it snowed, so end of that.

The largest snowfall in recorded history (we are told today on local media) happened on April 5th in 1987 - 12 inches. Glad I brought some winter clothing! It is definitely not Spring here yet!

Eased back in the recliner a couple of hours ago and had a wonderful snooze. Woke up to find huge snow flakes falling fast here, with about 1-1/2 inches accumulated so far and that will likely double before it ends.

Ah, April in Minnesota.
A crapshoot!

The spring I remember as the best was 1977.
By Easter Sunday ( April 10) I had a deep tan from going bareback in the farm fields and nearly all small grain was already planted ( 82 degrees on Easter Sunday)
One of the most perfect weather years ever.
Great crops.
1986............no fieldwork started until May.


Sounds like this spring will resemble 1986 more than 1977.
