Woke up to....snowing. This, locally unpredicted. It probably won't accumulate, but still.....

I don't want to know what it's like in Florida.

Today I'm planting flower seeds in my outdoor window boxes anyway (not putting them out there yet of course).

I know you don't want to know about it, but...

Miami broke a 31-year-old heat record yesterday when we hit 91. The normal high for this date is 81 and the old record was 89.

Today's high is supposed be a much more reasonable and spring-like 78.

I'm hoping for plenty of rain and snow. Last year we received twice our normal precipitation for the entire year during spring. Everything was green for several weeks and there was good forage for the animals last winter. This year it's dry and dusty. Deer mice abound. I hope our coyotes have healthy and happy puppies. Coyotes keep mice in check as mice form the bulk of their diet.

The cold desert is very different from the Northeast.

Listen to this beautiful song.

LOL Zug, sign me up for that recliner

Saw a glimps of the tornadoes, sad......wouldn't wish that one on anyone.

Great song, HiW.

OT, moms BF just sent me a link from Jim Willie, the SHTF financial guys who's droning on about the collapse of the dollar and how we must buy gold.

Man, he's a nice guy but how many tin foil hats does he have? The markets go down one day and it's panic.

The plan to load up my two dogs and head up to MD to meet two more senior black labs that I'm hoping to adopt had been put on hold. One of the girls has a bit of a health issue that they want to deal with before adopting her out. Hopefully the issue will be a simple one and not a major deal and I can go up there is a couple of weeks.

I did manage to extract myself from the recliner when it was time for dinner for the dogs and myself. Funny how that works.

Sunny but cold today so I'll stick with some indoor chores, I've got plenty to choose from, none of which is very appealing.

A good weekend to all my retired friends here and a special shout out to PhxBarb for her ongoing recovery.

Healing hopes to Barb and those pups!

Snowed here and colder as well. Put off get together with my BFF as they will have more snow than we, don't want to drive into a storm.

Going to putter around in the shop with DH later to put up more parts to sell.

Wishes for a peaceful weekend, all!

If it's 91 now, what will it be in July/Aug?

OMG speaking of wildlife, at breakfast DH looked out the window and there was our fox, standing on the path. It's the first time I've seen 'Foxy' in broad daylight. He's beautiful. Big bushy tail, reddish colored. Of course DH started yelling and with the window cracked he took off up the road.

We had a pair a few years ago, which Dh diligently tried to shoot many times. They ran off and are probably still laughing.
