    OMG, you two are a hoot! I'm sitting here, just my dogs with me, they were sleeping, until I read this and started laughing!
    Sadly, what I thought was going to be a sunny day turned out to be only about 53 or so and cloudy all day. Sun peeked out just a few short spurts, that was it. Ho hum. Same thing here as others, high 50's again tomorrow, rain, and then 40's and 20's for the weekend. I'm still planning to rework my waterfall, unless it's raining. Colder weather doesn't bother me, as it IS February, for goodness sake. LOL And, if I can get my ball valve closed tight (and lubed so I'll be able to open it and close it when needed later on) I'll be getting my pump up and going this weekend, too. I agree with Sissy, I think the hard freezes are over with, just frosts, and with the waterfall running, no worries about anything freezing. My pump is underwater.

    They just said this has been the 5th warmest winter in history (for our area at least) that is going back 120 years.

    I think this yoyo weather has thrown a lot of ponds off wack even here where temps do that all the time .I remeber 3 years ago it was almost 80 degrees on christmas day and for 3 days after that and then we suddenly we dropped down to 20 degrees and then back up to 70 for new years .Last night we had a really bad thunder and lightening storm .The lightening lit up the whole house and the thunder just shook it .Felt like an eath quake .The rain came down really hard also .

    We are expecting 3"-6" of snow tomorrow. I just bought more salt, but this winter is nothing compared to last year!

    Uh oh, Addy will have x-rated videos coming up soon. :) I was really hoping my goldfish and shubunkins would wait until I got the new pond dug before they spawned, but if that's the case, I'd better get to digging it! VERY windy this morning, although it says 25-30 mph is all. Had to go retrieve 3 buckets I left outside last weekend, and a tarp. All tucked inside sheds. Bird feeder is emptied on the ground due to the wind rocking the feeder. This is the only part I really hate about my property, nothing to stop that darn wind from any direction. Grrrr ... Temp is 37 right now, only getting up to 40, then down to 27. Same temps for tomorrow, but sunny tomorrow, so I'll take it! No snow predicted here in "southern" Illinois, so I'm happy about that. Looks like Keith is expecting some in northern IL. I know my 2 sisters in Milwaukee, WI area are talking about having to shovel some snow this morning.

    Try living up on a hillside like my house is great views but the wind seems to always be blowing hard .When you try working in the yard with the wind that can be tough also and tough on flowers and trees too .Wind is nice to have though when it is really hot out

    Diggin, your snow looks very much like my sister in Pewaukee this morning. Very pretty! BUT, I'm concerned about my flowering crab trees which started trying to bud out last weekend, and my hyacinths are ready to send the flower bud shoot up any day now. I've asked Mother Nature to please be quick with this last cold snap and then leave the springtime temps. :razz: :goldfish: :razz:
    Sissy, yes, living on the top of a hill would be the same effect, if not worse, than what I have here on the open prairie. Be careful, or you will get blown over the other side. I have to think "wind" everytime I buy any type of flower or tree for my yard. Never had to do that before, but you live and learn!
