Was 32F this morning, but it is sunny and 36F now, no wind. No rain in sight for next 3 days. It's getting real dry here to. Ground is hard like July. ::) Hit the bushes tomorrow mapping out ground. No peepers here yet, no blue birds or swallows.

Had a woods fire about 15 minutes from me. Someone burning something and it got away from them. Way too dry to be burning!!!!

Up here need burn plans filed with DNR unless a small manageable pile of brush. Usually can burn until almost May before fire season. I would say fire season began here at least a week ago. Field here by the house looks sand dry. We even had a lot of fall rain, she's gone. ::)

Was 62F here yesterday and just as warm for today they said. Suppose to get snow/rain Saturday. ;D Frogs came out here over a week ago now, but they are not singing much. You'll here them some then quiet. :-\

No blue birds or swallows. No bugs active yet I guess, except mosquitoes in the yard. >:(

Out in the back country they are still making syrup. Seen a little snow in the woods there, but just about dried up. Was out at the Hargrove's facility, they are on Chris's scale, only a lot bigger. They must suck some fuel because they have some huge fuel tanks in the yard, but I also smelt wood smoke or soot to. ;D

Yeah, the big maple here in the yard has been flushed for over a week. I hope the grapes don't get in a hurry or they will be stone dead by the middle of June. :D

Yesterday I seen someone a few miles down the road burning a large brush pile, not going to lie made me feel a little worried knowing how dry things are around here too. We always got Forrest fires around me with all the drunk red necks further down the road into the Bush from me :D
I am going to establish a fire road around the perimeter of my land some day in the future for more peace of mind

About 3-4" of white stuff the last two days on the picnic table. Ground is all white this morning. Winter isn't done for us yet I guess.

Foggy this morning. 
Looks like I will have to bring some more wood up to the OWB. Temps a little below freezing for a few mornings. Winter is not over here either.  ;D  Snows here in April and most have a fit about it. Get ready for a fit!!!!!

Yes, been building a smudge most every morning here. Came up stairs this evening and it's 85F. Windows were opened up and that big curtain closed. :D 65F outside and sun a beaming down. I don't think the snow is going to be much for us, they said in the 40's tomorrow, so might be some mixed in with rain at the start. Time will tell. Maple is flowering today.

Mid April is usually the end of winter here when it comes to snowstorms. 
12 weeks beyond groundhog's eight more weeks BS. 
We have had some doozies about now, wet n heavy.

Got some snow on the way for this evening looks like it will be short duration but heavy and then melt the next day, looks like Maine will get hit too

Yes on the snow, but only an inch so far. Have to watch that so far too. At 33° who knows what will happen. The wet stuff is still coming down too.
Just like last night, no snow at work, half way home the ground is white, I could see no snow at my house.

We've had barely a trace here so far, in fact you'd have to look hard because it's not a blanket. Not doing anything at the moment. In an hour it could be a full on blizzard. :D

By the time I went to sleep around 9 it was wet snow, woke up at 2 am it was white fluff everywhere I nearly had a heart attack, luckily it has melted quickly and only a little left. Probably 3 inches or so

My least favourite. Cold/freezing rain.
