Drought is Over

Not only is the drought over in our State but it can't seem to quit raining.  It rains nearly every day.  There has even been water across the main Interstate causing traffic to detour.  Bridges have been washed out or collapsed and gravel roads are in poor condition in many places.  So many homes have been flooded.  Rivers are out of their banks in so many places.  We were so happy to see the rain after 2 years of drought but enough is enough now.

Fun for the Whole Family

What could be more fun for the whole family than a good safe trampoline?  They got theirs set up last week and the great grandchildren are busily playing on it.  The youngest hasn't been walking all that long but he is doing quite well.  He is really concentrating on the job of walking on the trampoline.  Now that he is walking, he is running, as well.  He has so much fun with his sister and brother.  I love to stop and see them because they come running with big hugs for me.

Broken Rib

My brother fell and broke a rib.  He fell awhile back and bruised some ribs and it took awhile to mend.  This will take even longer.  It is hard for him to sleep as every move wakes him up.  They used to tape people up so they didn't breathe deep to let the rib heal.  Now they find it is better to just leave it alone and let it heal itself.  He's going to have several weeks of pain before he gets over this one.  Hope he doesn't fall anymore.

Heat Wave

We have had the worst Spring ever.  So much rain, snow in May and cold temperatures below normal.  Now today they say we are going to hit 90 for one day.  The humidity is going to be so low there is a burn ban out.  Then tomorrow it will drop 15 degrees and be back to whatever is normal around here. The problem with such a high temperature as 90 means severe storms could develop.  I sure hope not.  We haven't had normal for a couple years it seems.  The next door neighbor mowed my lawn for the first time yesterday and it wasn't really very tall yet but it is nice and green.

Christian Concert

Have you ever been to a CARMAN concert?  If you haven't, then you are really missing out.  He writes much of his own music and his performance are electric.  I have been to several and would love to go to more.  However, he has been disagnosed with an incurable cancer and given 3 to 5 years to  live.  He wants to do at least one more concert and it will take $200,000 to do it.  Won't you help by going to this website  Every pledge will help him to complete this wonderful project.  Check out the gifts you can receive also by pledging to this cause.  Thank you.

The Birds are Back

I saw a beautiful oriole at the hummingbird feeder on May lst.  I had just filled it and was so glad I did.  I got the finch feeders filled and ready too.  Today the first Goldfinch is out there eating.  Both birds are so beautiful.  I just love to watch them.  The hummingbirds should be coming soon too, usually around Mother's Day they always say.  The 10 inches of snow is all melted away now.  That was a shock to have all that snow two days in May.

May 2, 2013

Can you believe it?  We have 10" of heavy wet snow on the ground and more coming down.  It fell overnight. Global Warming - my a_ _.  Who is kidding who? Al Gore became a multi millionaire selling this and he is sooooo wrong.  In all my years, I have never seen snow like this in May.  It is breaking down trees, shutting off lights and it is so heavy, it is a real job to shovel.  Thank God it is May and if the sun could just come out it would melt fast.  It has melted where it has been shoveled off. It is only 35 degrees.  It was 72 the other day.
