    Sounds like a stormfront that stalls and floods.

    Good luck.

    Here on the coast of NC, we've had torrential rains up in the mountains that a couple of days later raise our river and creek levels incredibly high. And it doesn't even have to rain here. Were just at the last stop before the ocean. :#

    edited April 8
    There was fresh-fallen snow* on the ground up here when we got home today from our weekend of debauchery :)

    Indeed, we passed two nasty looking vehicle mishaps on I-89 just before the exit we take to get to our house. One was a poor little KIA or Hyundai which was flipped over on its top :( The other one was way, way off the road and wasn't going to be coming out under its own power (or perhaps ever to even be under its own power, ever again -- by the looks of it).

    Spring in New England.

    Been cold and rainy in Northern CA lately, after a really cold and rainy winter. Unfortunately, this means I have to cut the grass every two weeks for probably two more months.

    After a freak and sudden unexpected 2 hour blizzard last Tuesday, I believe that spring is finally -but not officially - here. I keep hearing rumor that we will be dipping down below freezing again soon. So much for the Orange crops.

    Oh, finally! I had enough of this depressing weather. I want some sunny weather and long walks by the beach already. The other day it was so boring at home that we started to search for a hotel for sale in Tenerife with my wife's brother. It would be so cool to run a small hotel in a cute exotic village in Spain and deal with tourists and local people instead of all these old farts who call themselves ''bosses'' and two-faced co-workers.

    We just got a foot of heavy wet snow in this blizzard last night and this morning. Minnesota and the Dakotas much worse in places. F me!

    Spring is DEFINITLY here!

    Flowers are blooming and there's budding trees everywhere. Our Japanese Maples are in full foliage now. They're simply gorgeous too. I've had a few WOW comments on them in the past week.
    tauh0zpvwu4g.png

    Massive pollen in the air for a couple of weeks now. :# Although It might've peaked when these photos were taken with a drone. I've seen the pollen come off a tall Pine Tree once that looked like it was on fire giving off yellow smoke. It's quite a sight to see that much pollen from ONE TREE floating off into the air. It really looks like smoke during some years. Our cars have been getting coated with the yellow pollen for weeks now.

    I've had to take a Benadryl a day for a week or more now. I'm going out to try and do some quick stair expansion at my back porch. It's right under an Oak tree that's sprouting leaves now. :D
