I imagine you noticed that whenever CO got a storm, MN usually got it next. The difference is, COs snow is light and fluffy and is gone very quickly - ours is cement and stays with us longer.

Are you still moving North? We have it pretty good here right now. (I have not forgotten the winter, however.)

Let's see. Tomorrow it's supposed to be 40 with sleet where I live. No sign of spring except driving around I've seen a few things starting to bloom and some very sparse forsythias. This must be our punishment for the glorious non winter we had last year. Somebody send us some warmth!!!!!!!

I was supposed to head up north around May 1st, but it's now postponed. I was recently summoned to appear for jury duty and had to reschedule for May 15th . I'm aiming for June 1st so I don't think I'll be staying for six months, as originally planned. With all the medical stuff I need to take care of before heading to NH, I'm not confident I'll make it by June 1st, but that's the goal. <sigh>

My youngest son just bought a home in Jacksonville Beach, FL, so I've been checking out that area for the winter months. But I just can't wrap my remaining brain around the idea of spending half the year in Florida. I'm thinking maybe I can tolerate Baltimore winters, after all.

Good idea to wait. Today NH is supposed to get snow and who knows what else will
happen. By June all should be well.

I love the rain in spring, just as the leaves on the trees are starting to come out. We have a few days of it here, it's calming. However, there may be freezing rain in the picture if we get the blast from the Midwest. It's amazing what survives even in the cold, even delicate little flowers. I have a feeling that we're going to go directly from cold to 100 degree days, with no real spring. Although it's supposed to be balmy (60s) on Monday.

Bright sunshine, forecast high today 72 with about 5% humidity and no wind. My favorite lake (ok reservoir) was stocked last week with 9,500 rainbow trout. I'm going trout fishing.

Default Hottest thread in Retirement that I can remember

I don't keep statistics, but the "Can this retirement system be saved?" thread has had 201 posts in the three and a half days of its existence. The thread seems to be a home for voluminous posters, such as bUU; using the "Find all posts by...." feature, I note that bUU posted 80 times in about 12 hours yesterday, spread over three or four forums, but mostly retirement. That is his or her right, of course, but I have to wonder if such a practice crosses the line into obsession.

Or at least try to.

Coming home to Zion - if you catch my drift.
The Wahsatch Front is the most pleasant metropolitan area in the world. I'm no city boy but if I were you can believe that's where I'd live. My choice would be Utah County. I'm not LDS.
