The Robins are REALLY annoyed now



It is April 2nd and (after this morning) we have 2-4 inches of snow on the ground. The sidewalks and streets held enough heat that they melted.

The robins have been here for two weeks and the red-winged black birds have been here for three. They are not amused.

The last time they were this annoyed was back in 2007

They're Back!!

Opened the pool last weekend. (It's been kind of cool.)

Until this evening, all I have been seeing are immature fire flies. Flying or eating plants, but not lighting up. Tonight they are lighting up everywhere in a one mile radius around our house.

The church next door must have two dozen in their front field. We have about ten all around the house.

It is pretty cool to have summer back again.
