    Foggy! Wind is down right now, so the fog is much needed moisture we are glad to have. But that means we won’t be able to get all the work done on the truck that we needed to do. Meh, maybe it’ll clear up later.

    Rain is back and things are warming up to the 40's now. Will even get to the 50's in a few days but still comes w/rain, rain, and more rain!

    Honestly, it’s like weather seesaw’s between nice for me, not so nice for others, then reverses.

    Last of the big clusters of bulbs dig up in the circle. Weather got nice, so I went out and worked on that, burned trash, the guys got a lot done on the truck, and I saw all my fish!

    So has anyone turn there pond into a igloo :)

    I bought a 300w heater de-icer after hearing about the storm 'Beast From The East' was coming.
    I have the rod laying on the bottom instead of floating with pumps off. After 3 days temps went from 2C to 8C with weather -5C outside. Worst this to hit later. I got to say i'm impressed with this de-icer, doing a fine job keeping the chill off a 2000l pond.

    Looks like we're getting nothing. The entire system is staying just south of here. So glad we didn't get that 5-8" of snow originally expected.

    The 6 day forecast remains in the 40s, which is nice. As of now, it looks like the general weather trend is roughly the same throughout March.

    We are under serious winds.................for the next 24 plus hours winds up to 70 mph, sustained winds, flights canceled, fed gov workers told to stay home, bridge closed, schools closed.

    We stayed home from Baltimore, too dangerous to drive in these conditions, trees already dropping.

    Trees down one apartment building lost a three story brick wall. 5 people died, in cars, walking, in bed, from tree branches. Planes, why would they fly, pushed sideways. The few that took off. Lots without power.

    We have power, no internet. Hand can't take typing on the phone. So cya laters.

    Got 18 inches of cattle-panel-destroying snow here yesterday, and the plows won't be by until Sunday or Monday.

    We lost our power for 3 1/2 hours. Was able to get the generator fired up to handle the pond pumps. Power company was amazing getting things fixed way ahead of what they had reported. There is going to be days of cleaning the ponds up after the winds stop. Lots of leaves, branches and gum balls in the ponds!
