    Crazy weather! Wednesday it wasn't nice at all, Thursday (yesterday) it was beautiful! I was able to get out and get a bunch of ornamental grasses cut down and hauled off. Virtually zero wind all day, and just cool enough that I could keep the sweatshirt and gloves on while working with the crap.

    Then today it's 19 degrees and blowing from the north, supposed to have winds pushing 40 mph. by mid afternoon. No, I'm not even going to bother going otuside to work. I'm not that nuts!

    Yeah I hear ya...and people think I'm crazy when I tell them I much prefer the hot summer weather to the spring/fall. It's predictable. I know what to wear each day. 99% of the time if it rains, it's not til late in the day.

    Hey Jason - would ya'll start closing the barn doors. This nasty crap is coming all the way down to Texas. Wednesday all the trees are covered in blooms. Thursday all the trees are covered in snow.

    Hey don't look at me! I blame Nebraska! I guess we are lucky that it's just cold and blowing, but clear blue skies. Guess all the moisture went way south!

    It's just not right I tell you...

    I agree with fresh...no days on, all days off here in MN (and $0 coming in). Below 0 tonight.
    Will be about 3 weeks before I start shrub trimming I estimate - as soon as we get rid of some of this blasted snow.
