    85 here in Columbus, there was frost last Friday morning. Absolutely no spring whatsoever. Right on into summer.

    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; LAT International speaker cables, ZU Mission IC's and power cables all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    Other; S60'S, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    There are three things that give a man a false sense of courage, a keyboard, alcohol and a firearm.

    We were supposed to get some rain here in Central FL, and it’s very overcast but no rain yet.

    This is taken from a upstairs window, and the outside is a little dirty, and we don’t have a way to clean it, so excuse the smudges in the pic.

    That would be a picture of my yard if I got rid of all my weeds. Sprinklers solve that, don't they?

    yes they do. although our yard is all sand, it takes a long time for it to grow. usually all the grass that is showing is a nice vibrant green, but I hit a sprinkler with the lawn mower a few months ago and we fixed it last week, so in a few weeks it should be back to normal.
    we are kinda lucky we have any grass with the amount of water (or should I say lack of amount of water) with the sprinklers broken :#

    Cool.

    I noticed with all the new homes getting built after the builders are tearing down the old homes around my area, they are bringing in some topsoil to go on top of these sandy yards. Then they bring in SOD. I don't see any sprinklers. I believe these new homes are rentals for the UNCW students. Most yards are small around here. This area close to UNCW is transforming FAST.

    Now I just went out to get the mail. Nancy cut the grass yesterday evening. I looked for bare spots but I see a lot of grass growing and with the weeds cut down to a few inches, you can't tell where they are anymore. YEA! There might be hope after all. :D

    I just need to call Tru Green and see how much the extra service will be! 30.00 for the first I guess.

    I just found a pic. I took a few weeks ago. Look at ALL the bare spots. I'll bet I had grubs eating in those areas before I spread grub killer on my whole yard. Front, sides, and backyard got covered with that grub killer. The front does look better already though.

    Tornadoes are Mother Natures worst wrath. I've seen HUGE pine trees that were snapped in two separate places. 10 ft. from the ground and at 30ft. up. 3 people could stand in the diameter of these trees. I didn't have a camera then but sure wish I did.

    There were multiple homes that suffered damage like your sister-in-law's home when that tornado touched down 2 miles from my home here. And I heard it!! The frieght train sound is REAL! It like the biggest train engine rolling past your home in slow motion. The sound just goes on for a minute or more. Super Scary too!! I've lived through a bunch of huricanes and have heard the relentless high winds but that doesn't compare to the sound I heard that night of that huge tornado down the road from us.

    I hope everybody up there was safe and sound and had no injuries or worse.

    Well, that's what happens where you live, isn't it?

    Another gorgeous spring day in northern New England.
    Nice weather up here is sort of like monkeys and typewriters -- as the number of spring days approaches infinity, one of them is bound to be nice once in a while ;)
