Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Three shorts

Long day full of meetings. Lots of driving. Lots of sitting around waiting. Mostly about taking classes and future directions. But that also means a day of being offline. So catching up with the internets.

Now, as the sun finished setting, the wind gathers its strength. An onrushing of night. The weather changes to cooler overnight, which was bound to happen. Upper 80s at the beginning of April is not normal.

Tonight's NOVA is about finding planets. So I'm somewhat distracted from the typing. Well, that and the cat mewlings to go outside (they've been inside all day, went out for a few hours, then back in). Compared to these two our first kitty was a blessing. I'm just hoping to get them trained on how to sleep with us, but for the littlest that may be asking too much. For such a small cat, she likes to hog the most of the bed.

It isn't normal, is it? I've got a magnolia tree in full bloom and raspberry leaves on most of my canes. This is too good to be true.

Nope, Cassie, it's way ahead of normal. Also, from what I hear, this year the maple syrup season was only 3 weeks long (normally 4-7 weeks).

My friends who tap down here got less than half, but said it poured out of the trees because of the heat.

I hear it's supposed to snow on Friday.

And it now being Friday, yes, I saw some flakes fall. In fact, the deck has a dusting. I really hope the cold snap doesn't hurt the ornamental tree we planted in the fall.
