Yes. Sunny and 40's, like today. Then Weds and Thursday very windy and low 20's making it feel like single digits!

What a tease. Mother Nature needs to wake up and kick Old Man Winters azz to the curb!

Ready for sunny and 75!

40 & sunshine here. Well have a chance of showers & then a little cooler temps. We really could use a nice rain or 2. I went north over the weekend to do some shopping and couldn't believe all the burning of ditches & waterways that was occurring! It has been pretty windy and I really thought too windy to burn. Even though we just had snow, I still shudder to think if that fire had hit a corn field, there is nothing to stop it any more. The farmers for the most part are bulldozing the trees & fences, draining all the wetlands, and fire would just roar across the farm.

Good morning Ladies. Going up to 49 today. Got a clean bill of health yesterday from my Dr. Phew! I was psyching myself out all weekend long reading about high PSA levels. But I guess someone likes me up there so Ill be sticking around to annoy y'all for a while yet, lol.

Morning Swampers! Into the lie 40's here again today. Tomorrow a high in the 20's with wind gusting to over 40mph. Sustained winds around 20 mph. Going to be a blustery day. Glad today isn't- I don't like the feeling of my little cat bern blown on the highway. Happy to hear you got a clean bill of health Robert!

Thanks Willow. 20 degrees is powerful cold! Are you all prepped for your meeting?

Yup! Got everything ready yesterday afternoon

Is it an all day affair? Did you remind everyone to attend or else? lol

I sent out reminders. I know 2 people won't be there. One will attend by phone. Didn't hear from the others. I expect it will be just me and the exec director. It's this afternoon, but I have appts at 8, 9, and 10 before I head to Augusta for 2:30.

Sounds like a late day. Hope the Director buys you supper!

I doubt it, plus I will want to just head back and hopefully beat the 5pm commuter traffic.
