Well, we certainly haven't had it as bad as other places, but the stormy
weather seems to have reached us. For the last two days we have had
rain, wind, thunder and lightening, and today is not out of the 40s. Now
I ask you does that sound like Memorial Day weather? Usually the local
swimming holes open for the season on this day. My son was life guard
for several years, and this was always his first day.
Oh well, at least growing things seem to like this most peculiar spring
weather. I can't remember a more floriferous spring, even though it has
been really warm and pleasant. I was told it was the chilliest spring on
Everything is blooming its head off.
Just one thing missing - chipmunks. Until this week I had not seen but
and usually we are overrun with them. I have seem two this week. One had
been caught by the cat and was dangling from his mouth quite limply and
dead-looking. When the cat sat down to lick his bottom, the chipmunk was
gone in a flash. They seem to have learned something from possums.

I saw immediately some one with a front end loader tractor.... Like the
one my husband has clearing from behind a driveway. The locals are very
quick to not wait on anyone to fix it for them! We all are used to
clearing our own snow, etc! I think some news person said the church
organizations are quick.... Like Mennonite relief or baptist men and our
church rallies quick to take food or necessary items quick.
