  1. I was really hoping the nice weather would win out over what has become a typical late season game over the recent past. It has been so nice for the last 5 or 6 weeks that I don't think I'll be excited if the "best case" scenarios play out. I guess as long as it's not a hard freeze I'll be ok with it but I'd rather it stay above 50
  2. It's pretty new but yeah it probably does need to be sharpened (or replaced), it has done a lot of work recently. That's one of the things I need to learn how to do but the other side of that is chains are cheap at Home Depot... Looks like the upcoming cool wet shot isn't going to be much to write home about. Temps look comfortable enough (60 is reasonable) and it doesn't look like much precip overall, maybe enough to soak the surface a few times but that's about it.
  3. Boy what a stretch of soil warming weather we've had. The soil moisture is holding out pretty well from an inch or so down but now that things are leafing out (a week or two early) that will change quickly. I planted a few things and they're doing surprisingly well, we'll see if that lasts or if it was folly. I've spent a bunch of time cutting up those 9 trees that I lost two years ago and have gotten through most of the small stuff but I'm finding the limits of my rechargeable chain saw. It's not that it doesn't have the power or torque to go through big dense stuff but the battery overheats and it shuts down.
  4. I don't worry about the twigs and small branches, the lawnmower takes care of them pretty well. By June they're all chopped up and last fall's leaves are beat up and worked in. No fertilizing necessary, just replace what has grown out of the land by working the remnants back into it.
  5. More flurries earlier. It's cold. @Juliancolton radar says you're snowing, is it telling the truth?
  6. Yup wintry appeal for sure, 28/13/NW5/Flurries
  7. I guess the question is will it be coastal cool or continental cold? I'll take cool over cold, lower heating bills and better gardening conditions. I'm ready to have some fresh picked produce and really don't want to have to wait out freezes until early May again.
  8. Who ordered this!!? April Fools Day snow is ok in my book.
  9. That's what I was alluding to in a post a week or so ago. Spring seemed like it used to be warmer and drier earlier in the season, like it was more pleasant for more days than it has been for the last decade or so. I don't remember so many days affected by back door cold fronts and I (think I) remember planting the garden earlier.
  10. I had pellets for a while this morning. A couple of inches would probably be ok but any more and we'll have branches and weak trees down. It's budding heavily and leafing out for some species here and the ground is loose.
  11. Around 7:30, maybe a little later, I had windblown frozen pellets falling. That was nice to see.
  12. Heavy enough rain that some of the gutters are overflowing. Nice day... That storm for midweek sounds an awful lot like the April Fools storm in 97. Warm the day before, trees were leafing out quickly, some rain and rind then snow overnight as the storm moves through. Hopefully it's not 17" like that was because the trees are leafing out again.
