It took a few days for the plowed snow banks to melt away, but all was finally gone by last weekend. After the ice storm it stayed cold and grey here for a week, including 4-20. I had an early morning appointment for a scan at 8 a.m. on 4-20, so I was at the bus stop at 6:15 a.m. in order to make the bus transfers required to get me there in time. I wore long underwear because it was that cold outside, and I was right glad I did.

But the weather gods finally turned on the nice weather on Saturday the 21st. So I at long last was able to clean the bird feeders which really needed it after that extra month of winter. Everyone enjoyed the nice weather all weekend and into Monday.

No doubt you've heard the news of the Toronto tragedy of April 23rd. I think that nutter was able to hit so many people partly because so many folks were out and about taking advantage of the long delayed nice weather.

We're feeling rather bummed and subdued today! :( :x :(

I understand - such a senseless tragedy (yet another one) :cry:

On the lighter note - we are supposed to hit 80+ deg. F. (low 80s) today here in Minnesota :wink:
Have a good Monday folks!

Yes indeed it was a tragedy. But social services were out in droves to the place all week, helping the witnesses and friends of the victims with councillors and service dogs for stress relief, etc. A very nice service in honour of the victims was held on Sunday night last, too. Many thousands attended.

But on a much lighter note, as I shouted at Hook's forum, there's a new Harley dealership here in my town that is less than 2 miles away! 8) They were very kind and helpful, and let me have a test sit on one of the new trikes on the showroom floor.
Test rides will be held there on the 13th of May, and if there's a trike in the fleet, I'm going to take one for a test ride. :D

Also, this morning for the 1st time ever, a Baltimore Oriole landed on my feeder pole and tried out the suet. He made many return visits all morning, so I put out a fruit and nut suet cake for him this afternoon. They like those. 8)

Happy Friday everybody!

It's been very summer like here since Tuesday. The buds are swelling on the trees rapidly, my early Spring flowers are all finally in bloom and the grass in greening up and growing. :)

And so are the dandelions. It's time to get the lawn mower out this weekend! :|

Have a good week-end all! :D

My lawn is still short, but that old lawnmower just may come out pretty soon I suspect. :)
Happy Tuesday folks!

Such a week I just came off of......

Last Friday May the 4th there were wind warnings. I didn't think anything could be as bad as the wind storm we'd had a few days before the huge ice storm. But was I ever wrong! In fact I had trouble walking home after the post I made here in this thread on the 4th.

I have a sun room (green house) on a platform off of my back door. It's just a framework with 2'x2' plexiglass panels that are clipped into place. In the previous wind storm I lost two roof panels and one wall panel, which was the worst damage the sun room had ever taken since it was built in 1984. It was a bit of work getting the roof panels clipped back in place, and I had to use two new spare panels. The wall panel I could re-use.

But in the storm of May the 4th the winds reached hurricane force, and were only 3 mph less than those in Hurricane Hazel of 1954. A lot of people died around here in that one. 3 deaths this time and lots of power outages. But once again I got lucky and did not lose power. Nor did I lose any shingles off of my roof. The only damage I suffered was the loss of 2/3 of the roof panels and 5 wall panels from my sun room. And the doors of my shed were blown off, which has happened before, but this time the back wall was bowed out a bit.
Once the roof was off of the sun room everything in there was blown around into a complete mess.

I was meaning to clear out the sun room "some day" anyhow, so one good thing was that I now had to do it. :lol:

It took all last week to clean up all of the sticks and tree branches that came down, and clean out the sun room, find all of the S shaped and W shaped clips that were strewn about, and then put back or replace all of the roof and wall panels.
It was a full day job to clear out the room, and another to rebuild it.
Now I get to take out the last of the furniture and etc so that I can paint the floor with some textured "Behr Deckover" deck paint.

So not quite done yet. It's been raining most of today, so I've taken a break to come downtown today. :)

I also took Saturday afternoon off and brought the hog out of winter storage. Then I rode it over to the "Test Our Metal" event over at the new H.D. dealership here in town. They finished the event early, so I didn't get to torture myself with a test ride, but some fun was had nevertheless. ;)

Hopefully he's just busy.

Have a good weekend all. :)

(It's going to rain tonight and tomorrow, so I get to blow off doing the 2nd coat of deck paint for the sun room and porch until Monday!) :lol:
