Wow! The snow is disappearing so fast that it is hard to believe. It has been around 50 degrees the past couple of days. Hopefully it won't heat up to fast and give the ground a chance to absorb and dry. There has been sun and wind so that helps with the drying. Irish

Lots of melting happening up here these days, although we have a lot more left to go.  Temperatures have been as warm as 6 or 8 degrees Celsius.  Quite nice after such a miserable winter.  And now they are calling for snow this week.  Noooo!

Happy April!!  The months are just rolling by!

I hope those of you who still have snow on the ground will finally see green grass soon.  Here in IL, we are suppose to get up to 60 degrees today and 70 degrees for Sat. & Sun.!!  Woohoo!!

Our grass has already greened up and it will be time to mow soon.  There are little green shoots of flowers popping out of the ground, some daffodils are already blooming, and the trees are budding. 

Tomorrow is the kick off of the golf season where I work.  We've been open for golf for a while already, but it's "official" tomorrow.   :)  It's been nice and quiet around the business over the winter months and now everything will kick into high gear with noise, people, and events.

Ever since I became a licensed driver I have been concerned (ok, worried) when I'm traveling wondering what kind of weather we'll encounter as we travel.  I'm not traveling right now, however, our only child just pulled out of the driveway with his cousin to head to CO for a 4-day trip to go skiing. I don't dare look at the radar for weather between IL and CO as it will only upset me if it's stormy and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it (it will be over 2,000 miles round-trip).  So, I'll just pray for their safe travels and leave it at that.  (Soooo hard to do as a parent!!)

I hope the weather is looking up for wherever you live.

Have a good weekend!

Well . . . here it is early Spring here in the U.S., and that means the weather is unpredictable.  The news people are calling a major storm to affect many states starting on Wednesday (10th) a "monster blizzard" with lots of heavy, wet snow in some areas, whiteouts with blowing winds, and rain in some areas.  They are also calling this storm "one for the history books" . . . um, that doesn't sound good!   :o

Here in Illinois, our temps are going to drop from the 70's and 60's we've had the last two days into the 40's by Thursday with rain, possibly severe storms.  Oh yay, ugh!

Those of you in the path of these storms please be safe and prepare yourselves as best you can.  If you have to be out in the weather make sure your vehicle is gassed up and you have all the "winter" items you would normally use available.  Be safe and check in and let us know how you're doing and what's happening where you live.

Well, remember those couple weeks of melting snow and grass trying to turn green? We also had 70 degrees last week. Today it started snowing a wet big flaked snow and we got a couple of inches. They let school out early also. Back in winter mode.

Someone told me there is to be more snow but it had quit by late afternoon. Will know in the morning. This is not unusual for Minnesota to have a fairly deep wet snow ion April. In Michigan we called it a sugar snow as the temps were not terribly warm or too cold and it caused the maple sap to run well during the day and rest some at night. Irish

Irish - did you get any more snow out of that lovely Spring snow you had?

We ended up with rain and wind, wind, and more wind!  It knocked our internet antenna out of whack, so we've been without internet for three days - we just got it fixed today.  Yay!  With this electronic world we live in now, a day without the internet seems like forever.  Ha!

Tonight, overnight into Sunday, we're suppose to get 1-2" of snow!   :o  Say what??  We're suppose to be done with snow!  Thankfully, it won't last long and will probably be gone by Monday.

Crazy weather!

I've tried to find out how much snow other states got from the Spring storm, but I haven't found any specific amounts.  I have seen pictures of South Dakota and they had quite a bit of snow.

Throughout this weekend, there is suppose to be lots of rain, winds and possible tornadoes in the Southern and Eastern states.  If you are in those areas, be safe and keep an eye on the sky for changing weather.
