    ... stuck inside due to rain.  J, i thought of you the other day when i passed a guy on his rider mower - full rain gear, downpour be damned, sucking the wet, long grass into his spinning blades.

    I live in a place where there's so much wet this time of year we feel compelled to mow in it.  The day i plugged in the deck fountain and enjoyed the early Spring sun seems a distant memory.

    You, on the other hand, rejoice in your rare downpour, quite literally dancing in delight!

    Rain.  It's so unfair.

      And cold. Wednesday was a wet and very chilly day but we desperately need whatever moisture we can get so it was a welcome change. It rained again very early Thursday morning but it was just a brief shower.

      The best thing about it is that I haven't had to drag out the hoses for over a week now. Yay!!

      A steady warm-up began yesterday and by mid-week next week we'll be back into the upper 80s. There are a couple of days with very slight chances of rain and hopefully those chances will increase as it warms up.

        Though upper 80's is an uncomfortable swelter, no?

          It might be higher and thus more muggy if the chance of rain stays in the forecast. It has been a surprisingly pleasant spring so far. We're not running 10° above normal like we did most of the winter. That could quickly change though...
