What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Fridays

Bette cleaned out the flower beds and I raked the yard (collecting everything pulled out of the flower beds). Disappointed to see a lot of dead grass in the new dirt areas.

So, when there's snowstorms in January and February along the East Coast, Fox News goes on the "so much for global warming" jag. Now it was 80 degrees today, the spring peepers are singing out there tonight, today I stirred up more than one cloud of gnats doing the raking, and unprecedented rain and flooding in the NE, and not one "hey, might be something to that global warming" comment. Of course, climate affects weather, but weather is not climate. But I would expect their brains to function in a similar fashion. Guess that they can't even be consistent in their illogical stances.

Just heard the owl. He's a few months early. Going to go listen to him.

It was heavy duty spring here too. 80+ temp. And despite being a clear day here, there is so much pollen in the air it looked like mid-summer smog.

Atlanta always has pollen from hell. This year it will be worse, seems the early pollen producers stayed dormant because of the super cold weather this year. So all the pollen will hit the air within about a 3-week period, instead of spread out over 6-8 weeks.

I suspect my uninsured butt will be at some doc-in-a-box before it's all over to get prescription level drugs.

WendyB, wow, pollen compression zone. Hope you survived it.
