Quote from: dickfoster on March 28, 2021, 10:30:09 AMOverall it was a really nice day here. Maybe just maybe spring has sprung and we've seen the last of the snow although we still have piles if it here and there.
Quote from: walkstall on April 17, 2021, 12:00:46 PMWell I can say Spring is on the way for us. It call for 80º today. At 4:PM it was 112º and not it's almost 7:PM and it's 100º out side my place for us.
Quote from: Solar on April 17, 2021, 12:26:55 PMDamn! It was gorgeous here today, 77 and, well, quite windy, gusts over 30, but we never feel it because of the forest.But the pollen, that damned pollen!
Quote from: dickfoster on April 18, 2021, 02:02:59 AMWithout the pollen there would be no more trees. Back when I had a lot of allergies I lived on Contact to get me through the spring. I had red itcy eyes for weeks, even months. A severe allergy to mold almost killed me with asthma when I was a kid. Of course I was allergic to a lot of other stuff but the mold almost did me in.
Quote from: Solar on April 18, 2021, 03:25:18 AMSame here, mold is a killer for me. My digestion literally shuts down and everything goes to shit from there. No pun intended.
Quote from: dickfoster on April 18, 2021, 03:46:01 AMMy bronchal passage would swell up and I could not breath. It got so bad my chest was deformed, pigeon breasted from struggling to breath. The doctor I had had my mom running a vaporizor constantly which created the ideal enviroment for mold to grow. He'd given me an allergy test but somehow had skipped mold which is a very common allergy and that stuff grows everywhere. Of course the serium shots I was taking daily were doing me no good at all. In desperation they tried another doc who gave me another allery series and he found that I was highly allergic to mold most of all. After another series of shots with another serium this time including the mold I was cured. That first doc very nearly killed me off. Eventually even my spring time hay fever faded away too. I'm still allergic to fools but there is no known antidote for that.

Quote from: Solar on May 15, 2021, 12:09:30 PMWe had a 25 degree drop from yesterday. Air conditioning yesterday, heater today. More tomorrow and then dropping into the 50s mid week, followed by upper 80s.
Quote from: walkstall on May 15, 2021, 01:55:28 PMJust after 8PM and it 83º and Sunday is calling for 92º for my area. So I should see 100+ at my place. Had to replace 4 yard sprinkler heads and adjust 10 sprinkler heads up 4". Not bad for 15 years. I have 5 sets with 5 sprinkler heads each that run for 30min. each, every day.First cutting of hay has been baled and stacked. So there will be four cutting this year.
