Could Mother Nature please make up her dang mind. It was up to 74 degrees yesterday and absolutley wonderful outside. Rain and wind moved in ugly early this morning. Probably got about a half inch of rain. Now it's there is thunder, lightning and snow Thunder, lightning and snow???? Yes indeed. First time I have ever expierenced it. Strange. Temperature is dropping like a rock. Roadways and traffic will be an absolute mess in a few hours. The thrills of it all. Good thing the rental is a 2005 Ford F150 crew cab with a triton 5.4 under the hood. Ought to be fun driving that to work in the morning!

Sam,
Took a nap this afternoon and when I got up there was a nice suprise in the drive way. More BIG branches from the pine trees next door. Good thing the Rental Truck is in the back yard. That would been real fun explaining to the insurance company how we managed to damage two vehicles two Tuesday in a row with fallen branches.

Figure the odds on that one Sam. Good thing it didn't happen. It would have been the hood of the truck instead. Oh well. Parking in the back yard is a little fun right now. The ground is a little soft from all the rain. Good thing it's got four wheel drive.

Sounds like a midnight visit by "Round Up" for that darn tree.
