  • The End's in Sight!

    it's been a long, cold, wet, snowy, icy winter this year here in western kentucky and surrrounding areas. there's still a tiny bit of snow on the ground from where it had drifted, but it's almost gone now. the weather finally got over 40 degrees and is expected to hit 50 by the weekend! but, what was most encouraging was i got a Burgess seed and tree catalog today and, i took this little pic. it aint much, but it's a start (daffodils, always the first to bloom here)

    Kentucky, like here in the N.GA mountains, historically has had some heavy snowfalls in March. So until the blackberries bloom we're still under the gun. The daffodils are up here also though, in some places they are pushing up through the snow. My wife's cat sat out in the sun today for a few hours, a sure sign that spring is close. :-)

      I actually have to cut the grass this weekend (at least I didn't have to til March; past few years, I was having to cut grass in Feb. Can't wait til the time will come when I don't have to cut it til April (like it use to be). lol

      Cool that the grass (assume it's Blue; lol) is coming through Craig.

        got to 50 today. spent most of the day outdoors

        nice, john. i would guess the mountains might hold the snow a bit longer than here.

        it's actually daffodils, lyle. they often come out early like this then get hit with a short cold spell, then come on all the way.

        ya know, i always wondered where all this blue grass is. must be in eastern ky.

          Not to rub it in, but thought anybody living in the snow right now would enjoy this shot of Laguna Beach California today....

          this is somewhat directed at gary richardson, whose hardware wisdom i trust, but please, anyone, feel free to comment.

          my computer has lasted a good long time, probably 4 or 5 years now, but finally blew a gasket...somewhere. it started showing signs a few days ago, at least obvious...

          Torrential rains and wind expected in Phoenix
          by bpurvis
          Man, we hardly ever get rain, but when we do... The 2nd massive storm system heading east from the coast should hit us tonight and drop 4 or more inches in 2 days. That's as much rain as we often get in a year. Wind advisory warns of serious gusts.
