  1. Temp dropped from 67 to 60 in less than an hour. Who left the backdoor open. Sent from my SM-T510 using Tapatalk
  2. I was involved in politics and a member of the State Legislature in Rhode Island back in the early 1990s. There were many laws passed that gave state departments and agencies the power to promulgate the rules and regulations to enforce that law thru public hearings. Without knowing the specifics, it is entirely possible that states have ceded many of these powers back to the executive branch thru this process.
  3. I watched some Bundesliga both days. The play wasn't as bad as I feared, but for the most part it sounded like they were playing in echo chambers. I can't believe I am going to say this, but I think they need to add in some sort of fake crowd noise or something. Fortunately yesterday I could switch over to NBCSN to watch Man City beat QPR to win the title in 2012. Never get tired of Aguerooooooooooo! Staggering! Simply staggering! at 93:20.
  4. 81 for my backyard high, and first dinner of 2020 on the patio. Spectacular day. Sent from my SM-T510 using Tapatalk
  5. Same for me. Before the work day was determined by the commuter rail schedule. Now it is so much easier to hop on the computer with my morning coffee and work later into the afternoon. Of course it has taken a bit more time to do a lot of things remotely, and all of those Zoom and Teams meetings . . . On the other hand, I can't complain because I still have my job!!!
  6. Thanks. The feeders were gone within an hour of the first sighting. Judging by the burrows, the rats had been here for a little while. Sad watching all the birds today looking for their food. Sent from my SM-T510 using Tapatalk
  7. Bottom feeding. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  8. Sadly, we had to take down our feeders yesterday. We looked out at the back of yard, and for the first time in our 11 years here there was a rat scurrying around under the feeders. We went back ta take a look and saw the burrows along our back fence. Wondering if they will just leave once the food source is gone, or if we need to take other action. Thoughts? Advice?
  9. Our chimney was pulling away from the house a few years ago. Fortunately it was only connected to a fireplace that we never planned to use, so we had it removed. We were able to keep the face of the fireplace and the mantle in the living room so we still have the nice look but no worries about the chimney toppling someday. Is removal an option for you or does it actually serve a purpose?
  10. Over 1.6" of rain since midnight, plus what we had yesterday. April has been a super soaker. With the wind this afternoon and temps in the 30s, it was about as miserable an April day as you could imagine. I want my spring back, Sent from my SM-T510 using Tapatalk
  11. Amazing how many dead branches we've had come down this year and I'm pretty sure it was from the gypsy moths. Waiting to see what the oaks are going to look like once the leaves come out.
  12. Same here. Seems to come in waves and does not seem to be dependent on precip rate. Raining hard here now, but fairly calm.
