Messed around the yard a little bit. Ground is pretty soggy. It was 46 and sunny. We get aclimated (don't know if that is really a word or not) to the season, so when we come out of a cold spell, 46 degrees feels like 66 degrees as long as there is no wind.

We made it up into the 50's in Washington today. Yea, that's nice. It's still a little too soggy to do much in the yard though.
But I can almost taste spring:D
69 degrees is awesome.

Pretty muddy here also. Went to get a new belt for mackissic shredder and was going to remove the snowplow on my bolens and mount the shredder and "play" a little, but decided not to drive around in the mud making deep ruts, although that would just give me something else to do, maybe not such a bad idea after all! Was kinda warm here in the mid 40's, but don't be fooled, it will we back. The only good part about any snow now is that you have the fun of clearing it but it doesn't stay around too long. Could do without the mud though.

Yeah, I'm with Johnray with the temps in the 50's in Western Washington and a wide open yard that is still soggy in spots and 7 inches of grass I finally got the first cut on the yard today plus got to use my Stilh 250C, a awesome chainsaw in comparsion to the 20 year old Craftsman that crapped out on me. So 2 and a half acres mowed and 3 alder trees cut down to clear them from the road so I do not scratch my 5th wheel travel trailer when I drive up to my place. I also got all the trees cut up and put on the wood pile for next winter. Got about a 1/2 cord from the tree cutting.

Well, the cypress, oaks, and iris plants are starting to show signs of spring life. The first buds of the season are here ---- my garden seeds are germinating still ---- but it is all coming around. Another few weeks and we will have some real activity going on! :D You got to love this time of the year. The dormancy departs and leaves nothing but a calm awakening for the new year. Everything in its own season and a time for new growth --- both in garden and personally.

I wish everyone the best year ever! The very first Tractorforum.com spring season is underway! I cannot imagine the activity, adventures and fun that will await us all here in 04!

OWWWWWWWWWW you guys are KILLINGGGGGGGGGGGG me. Buds on the trees???? Spring?????????? I REALY got to move down south.



Got a little done today. They said we were to get a big storm this weekend, but just got a little slish, and freezing rain sat early am. then it cleared up. Got up to almost 40. Thretend to rain all day, but mostly held off. Moved my old convertible out of the drive, to behind my shed to make the town happy, and cut/split all the fire wood that was not stil frozen to the ground. Buzed around a bit on the N doing some "work" then spent some time building my work bench in the garage. Gave that up, becouse I could just not get my self to weld a good bead, so figured it was not my day for welding. Played with my little girl out in the snow, and made her first snowman. Not my best day, but had some good parts.

I had to work a double shift, From 2PM til 6AM. In the morning before I left I cleaned horse stalls and picked up dog droppings. Really kind of a crappy morning.:)

Well the last couple of days this week has been n the high 60's and low 70's bright sunny and beautiful clear blue skies. I gave the garden its final till and maybe next weekend I will plant it. All my trees are budding, and the cooler season grass that usually starts growing this time of year here is starting to poke its new shoots out of the dirt. Another couple of weeks and it will be just right for most anyting that needs to be done outside.

So its been short sleeves all week and weekend and the weather forcecast shows rain tomorrow and then sunny warm and clear for the next 5 days..................

If I could find my yard under the three feet of snow that sits on it I'd be doing that too. I think I remember where the barbeque was left last fall, may try to dig that out and make burgers:lmao:
