hey, @Troutredds , was curious; do you have any heron protection? Or any other predators? Sure is a n ice open area and if mine, I'd be devastated to have a heron visit! (That prompts another question--think I'll post in it General)
I replied to your question in the General post. (y)

a little snow and then gone a couple of hours later peanut loved it but puddles and pickles not so much . My new wifi thermostat gives you a nice picture of the snow . post card looking picture , you should see it when it was lightening outside . finished giving my 2440 sq ft basement 4 coats of drylock paint and it has the cure for at least 6 months before I can put up roxul rockwool solid panel insulation . No leaks ever down there but if I am going to do all his work why take chances .One of my gutter extention pipes did collapse and replaced that also . dug ditch 12 feet long by 18 inch's deep . Not sure why heavy duty pipe collapsed . all fixed and running again . my neighbor said I am 68 years old but going on 28 years old LOL

You are like that Timex watch..............you take a licking at times but you keep on tickin! Guess it's what keeps you so young inside, you never stop moving. Looks like Peanut loves snow just like me. Wow your temp says feels like 75F? Now that is some hardy surviving snow there. Ours was gone when it started heading up above the mid 30's. We have woosy snow here I guess :joyful:

We were supposed to get another storm thursday night but it passed us by

I hope you are OK JW as I saw the flooding up your way . I don't get on much with all the stuff I still have to do around here and weather slows me down but then I get to work in my wood shop so that is a bonus

All's fine w/us as we live up on a hill where it never floods. Below us tho is the river which can flood sometimes and not allow us to leave our hill. This did not happen here this time tho thankfully. There are area's in the state that are suffering terribly from the floods as you have prolly heard on the news. Landslides and trees falling are an issue also due to the mushy ground.

I'm swapping my only INground pond from a bare Koi Pond into a planted. Livebearer pond.
I've also replaced the filter.
Right now it's still in flux. I have a lily. (That's not in yet) and there are about 20 assorted Swordtails in there.

I saw video's on the news but you can't tell how bad because all they ever talk about is fake global warming . I got a pic of my thermostat during rain storm late yesterday .Supposed to b 52 today which is on target for this time of year . I love it at night with stars and moon

Yes lots of fake stuff going on out there now in the world.
Nice you are having better temps to enjoy your pond, and all of nature out there now. My pond is all thawed now and the fish are all swimming about enjoying getting back to our normal temps too.
