    We've had Moose sightings every day or two in the past several weeks, way more than I remember last year. I wonder if it has anything to do with the late leaf-out we are still just bidding at my elevation and the higher terrain is bare trees, so they may be hanging out to enjoy the new growth. Unfortunately I've also seen 5 road-killed so far this year
  2. Not cooling off nearly as fast as I thought here. Still 52 with a forecast low of 32.

    Moose are back!

    Not really sure, haven't been up there in a while... my guess is the trails are still going to be messy since they are quite shaded (even if it's the south side of the mountain). I assume that's what you're thinking about?

    One of the last patches of natural snow in my yard. Gone soon!

    Great pictures!

    I have similar concerns over our river here. It's at bank level with no rain, and after last fall's flooding, it's hard not to be on edge! Fortunately it doesn't look like we are slated to get any major rainstorms over the next couple of weeks, and hopefully we can keep t-storms at bay
  8. Haha, I've given up on tomatoes. Not even cherry tomatoes seem to make it here
  9. In that case, let's keep it sloppy lol
  10. Wet snow here too. Let's keep it wet

    Actually, I just noticed it got lower than that. -34.4 is the lowest recorded this winter, followed by -31.9. I'm on my phone so it's a pain to try and find the exact dates but you can get the entire history from my PWS (in my signature). I'm in an awful spot for radiational cooling. You can drive a mile from my house and it's 5 degrees warmer sometimes. On a bright note, just made another batch of maple syrup and it's still excellent in flavor. I assume that's the last of it but we'll see.

    Interestingly, I also just noticed that zone 4 is down to -30F. We've been lower than that (-32F), which technically puts me in zone 3, even though USDA maps show 4. That might be part of the problem.

    Definitely not worth it. They are pretty but last way too short to put any effort into it! The thing that annoys me is the burn on the evergreens that are planted. Everything was at least zone 4. I suppose it could have something to do with the fact that they are newly planted. They are definitely alive, we'll see how they fare next year

    I just had my first crocus flower today! Still plenty of snow patches. I have a forsythia but the stupid thing only flowers in the very lower part of the shrub, close to the ground (presumably, under the deepest snow). I think I'm going to pull it out one of these days. Unfortuantely, a lot of the ornamental pine trees I planted also suffered significant winter burn. Was not expecting that out of pine trees, grr...

    Snowpack should be done here soon. Open lawn areas are now snow free; the wooded or semi wooded ones still have some. Here's the view from my new house kitchen window
