    must be that global warming I have been hearing so much about
    Hit em'hard

    No such thing as Spring around here lately. We go straight from winter to summer. High 20’s and freezing rain here now and looks like another week of a high in the 40’s and rain/snow mix.

    It's Springtime here. I've seen a couple of 80 degree days. A cold snap came through a few days ago. Gave highs in the 50's. Yesterday was a beautiful 70 degree day. Spring breezes are here. We have those until mid June. Lilacs in full bloom, and leaves almost full on trees.

    We had temps near 85 on Friday. Saturday was 30 with blizzard conditions all day. Cold today and almost 60 tomorrow. Daughters post prom was canceled but prom went without a hitch. Worried about her all night til she got home. She was quite surprised to see this old man up past bedtime, lol.

    Here in inland NH we currently have a mix of freezing rain, sleet, snow and Lord knows what else. Basically a pretty crappy day. It is right at 32 degrees so we will get a bit of everything today.
    Crappy Sundays are reserved for the casting shed and cleaning the barn....and not in that order.

    I went west from Kalispell yesterday for a shoot. The snow is going away in my area, but I was amazed at how much snow is still on the ground just a little way west.

    We have about 10 inches down since yesterday & it is still snowing a little & blowing as well. I will be going out to snow blow & clean up at around 4 PM. Our town roads have not even been plowed yet except for emergency services routes.

    Missed out on the Trout opener yesterday, but I know some who braved it & got their limit in brook trout. I stayed home. I am older than they are & call that not going out in that stuff, "wisdom". ( If they fell in the water in those conditions far from shelter, I hope they were prepared to deal with the results of the bath in those conditions. I know how, but am not gonna do it anyway not worth the fish or the fishing if it is miserable, IMO.) I can wait til warmer weather myself, The season runs to Sept., so it is not a need to rush thing for me...

    I like the 4 seasons , but I prefer them to run there normal course in time & be regular about it. Mother Nature must have not got the memo this year, or is just "sleepin in"...

    I have outdoor things I want to do that requires warmer weather & I like to garden, so this is kind of ticking me out a bit. I prefer to shoot in warmer weather & the rounds are piling up. Need some stress releif & get back to my training regimen again..

    Its in the mid 40's here, overcast, with the wind at 18. Got a fire going, just finished reading a book. Looks like a freeze warning for tonight. Yeah, Global warming! Just finished a round of severe thunderstorms with numerous tornados.

    WHAT? Only 4 seasons? Here in New Hampshire we have SIX seasons: Summer, Fall, Winter, spring, mud, black fly then spring!

    The earth is in a cooling trend and will be for the next 50 or so years. Look into the mini ice age. It is a normal cycle and the Global climate change butt holes are going to use it to try to prove that they are the all seeing and wise men and know what is good for us.

    So be prepared for cold wet springs and summers. Don't believe me???? Look up the "year without a summer"

    Well here is our last three days. Friday was heavy rain and 3/8" size hail, then Saturday the snow and sleet started followed by a day of snow and it is still snowing. The snow is so heavy you can walk across the top of it and shoving is only possibly by chunking it to break it apart. Yes turkey hunting starts this week but not sure if I should where white or camo?
