Right at 32 now. Going up to low 50s and a pretty good breeze. Supposed to be near 60 and maybe some wind tomorrow too for the Logrite Open House
I believe in the hereafter, because every time I take two steps into the tool crib to get something I wonder " what did I come in here after"

Well the snow turned to rain showers by noon and then some sunny breaks, reached 41. Took a 2 hr ride up to the Tobique River and saw 100 deer in the fields, some eagles and an Osprey. The ice is mostly gone in the main river except the head ponds, but thin ice. Will be gone by month end I'm sure. :)

30F this morning, no wind, and full sunshine, not even a sign of a cloud. The radio weatherman said cloud and grey today. He better look out the window. :D

57F feels hot after 2 months of 30's for high. :D I was transplanting rows of raspberry, spread some sheep manure on the fruit trees and raspberries, put some on the garden, put down mulch. Ground is firm enough to drive on across the lawn and no frost nowhere here, except around the root balls of two old tomatoes. Can't for the life of me figure how a couple tomato roots hold frost. I used some snow as water on the transplanted raspberries. ;D Man out in that sun sure felt hot, was glad to sit in the shade of a pine for a break. ;D :D :D Suppose to be 65F or hotter tomorrow. :)

I have no idea what went on this morning. The sky had changed color. And it was bright out. The sky was a pretty blue,not white or gray at all. Someone had a very strong light on too. Yes,a warm day.

My brother's gravelled drive way is as hard as cement, been that way 2 weeks. Mine is firm now because the snow just went off 2 days ago. ;D Ground always dries out fast around here, no heavy clay. :)

A warm 48. We had a very light rain yesterday. Did not get much water from it.
The past 2 days was great. Sun,sun,and more sun.
The big pile of snow behind the store is going fast now.

Steady soaking rain here last night and today so far. Lots of water, the snow was not making any at all on the ground. The house lot where I am building is pretty much bare, just a shovel full around in spots. Ready to plant a couple clumps of black berries this weekend. I am caging them in since they like to grow 8+ feet with branches, I want them kept in their place. :D I got the raspberries staked and roped. I put the cross arms lower this time, at 30". I seem to always put them too high. These raspberries do get 6-7 feet tall, so if need be I can add another arm a bit higher up the posts. I have 10000 feet of baler twine here, enough for several lifetimes of tying up berries. :D

I was out yesterday for a drive in the rain to see if there was any head pond ice in the St John. She's gone, no sign of any ice even on shore. Gone. I figured it would be gone by the end of the month despite being a cold one. Spring is right on time after all. I bet there is some water down on Waterloo Row in front of the legislature by now.

Colt's foot has been in flower here for 2 weeks along the ditches. Aspen is in flower to, like pussy willow flowers. :) Nice when there is no bugs, but I do have a few mosquitoes and one black fly hit me the other day. I bass starred him right quick. :D

Had our first few 50 days up here over the last week. Still a lot of snow on the ground and ice on the lakes to melt. Calling for some rain and snow tonight then some warm weather coming up. Spring is a bit behind but by June it should be nice out.
