The winter here was actually 2" below average for precipitation although the spring has had some good rain and colder than normal temps. Its almost like being in the desert where its warm during the day then near freezing at night. Supposed to get patchy frost tonight. It was randomly 80 degrees last Sunday. The weather is really screwy. I think it'll climb into the mid 70s again this weekend. Spring has been like this for a while, instead of a gradual warm up the transition from winter to summer is like flipping a lightswitch on and off until its hot every day.

Wow!

No fun, I'm sure. 70s sound pretty good to me right now.

I think we are supposed to be high 70s and even hit 80 this week.

I created a new thread where I can post about the various species that are making use of our wildlife pond:
