Was such a pretty day I went for a walk into the bay. Saw some turkeys, a deer and found these fellas taking advantage of the warm weather.

This is the bay. Lots of things in there.


Found this one sunbathing. When I snapped the picture I got to thinking if its warm enough for them to be out then it was warm enough for my legless friends to be out too. No sooner than this thought crossed my mind a long brownish snake shot out from the weeds in front of my feet. Haven't a clue what it was but it drew some goose bumps.


This one kept eye-balling me.

Talking about your legless friends, a friend of mine killed a rattlesnake yesterday that was 6' long and had 15 rattles. There moving already even though we had lows in the upper20's this past week.

OldTimer, I really don't know how I'd make it through one of your winters. I'd probably just hole up in a cabin somewhere and never go outside. But I think the extremes kinda even out cause this is about as close to a spring as I will get. Next they will turn the sauna on and the humidity, heat, mosquitoes and other biting creatures will do their best to make us uncomfortable.

LaneFarms, a six footer would definitely ruin your day. My next door neighbor got bit last year. He still hasn't fully recovered. He got pumped good while working in his garden. I like to see them either dead or painted bright blue so they can't sneak up on you. :lol2:

The weather folks are in a tizzy, big old storm forming, 12-24 inches of new snow, big winds. Did I mention.....

You Suck!

Ditto... :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :nod:

Power was out for 3 hours this afternoon and the generator was not working properly so waterers froze (that is the best thing ever thawing drinkers in freezing cold temps. :roll: ).....BTW it is -32 right now and another blizzard is on the way with gusts up to 45 km./hr and Tues. we get to look forward to a low of -41....

I agree with MM, you suck... :cowboy: I bet my new baby born yesterday is thinking wtf ????

Did I mention that Saturday I sat watching a soccer game and the temperature was 78. Had a nice cool breeze blowing on my back and the sun just warmed my face and arms. Birds were a chirping and I just laid my head back and had a peaceful nap with no gnats or skeeters to pester me. Oh, and they say its really going to be uncomfortable tomorrow. 82 degrees. I think I'll probably have to put the shorts back on and work on my tan lines. If winter lasted more than the 8 miserable weeks we must endure each year I just don't know what I'd do. :lol2: :mrgreen: :lol2: :mrgreen: :lol2:

Thank goodness your cold is a DRY COLD. RIGHT!?! :mrgreen: :lol2: :cowboy:

Had to break out the rubber boots today for the first time since last winter. . . . . . . . .Cows broke a fauce to a water trough. Filled the "lagoon" around it with about 6 inches of water. Thought about just ditching the shoes and socks but I didn't. I'll have another small patch of green grass in a few days. :p

Still 73 degrees (high was 81) and for a change virtually no wind at 7mph.

Well, when you add in all them creepy crawlies, slitherers, the crocogators, the humidity, and hurricanes and himicanes you guys have -- 20 Below and a few blizzards don't look quite so bad... ;-)

5 Below this morning- 15mph- 25 Below wind chill.. Wind is supposed to switch around to the east and go up to 25 mph...
Up 1/2 the nite checking heifers-but they must be waiting for the real cold to hit.... :roll:

It only got up to 80 here yesterday, and should be like for the rest of the week. I don't think I could stockpile enough whiskey to make it thru some of those winters up north....

close too 80 here and will be tomorrow.......but as good as it feels, its this kind of weather that breeds the twisters.... too warm too soon for me, we are in that area too get hit by a cold front any time.

Winds are back to 20-25, temps in the 80's. Had a hint of fog this morning when the winds weren't blowing. Closest we've been to rain in 4 weels.
