Good afternoon everyone, It is another warm and sunny day. This morning it was cloudy and it looked like it might not be a good day to hang laundry outside, with hopes that it will dry. Around mid-forenoon it cleared off and the sun shone and soon it was quite warm. The gardens are dry [...]

Good Afternoon Everyone, What a change in the weather! We have had some very warm days the last few weeks, now today it feels different. We had a very nice, much needed rain on Tuesday the 7th but it did not really cool off. Last night we got a little more rain and this morning [...]

Good Morning Everyone, What a beautiful day we had today! The sun came up by 6:00 AM in a clear sky. There were some fluffy scattered clouds throughout the day with a clear blue sky for a background. The temperature was very pleasant. A wonderful blessing/gift from God. The laundry that was hung out on [...]

Good Morning, I hope everyone is doing well on this rainy spring day. It is warmer so it feels better. Things are really growing now that we have more moisture and warmer temperatures. The temperature was actually in the 80’s yesterday. It looks like we will be getting rain all week. The woods are beautiful [...]

Blessed Easter Everyone, This has been an interesting day weather wise. During the night we had thunder, lightning, rain, and it sounded like hail hitting the windowpanes. Then early this morning the moon was shining. It was still visible when the sun came up. But soon the sun was hidden by the clouds and we [...]

Good afternoon everyone, Is everyone ready for our spring season? It seems like it is here. Now for the last couple weeks whenever we step outside, we have birds singing. They sound so cheery plus it is uplifting for our mentality. On a recent trip to the swamps we saw a Great Blue Heron Rookery [...]

Good Morning, Last evening it started snowing from the northeast and soon the ground was white. This morning we had 32° and a nice blanket of snow on the ground. The wooden fences, bird feeders, etc. are covered with a mound of heavy, wet snow. It looked so beautiful with even more snow coming down. [...]

Good Afternoon, It is a sunny, spring-like day in January. We have 52°. Even though we think we should be having snow, I will enjoy this weather while it is here. Seems like we should do something outdoors, but there really isn’t anything to do except dig carrots out of the garden for fresh eating. [...]
