    I was hoping to move the unused firewood off my front porch this week and give it the usual cleaning for the summer. It seems I'll have to postpone it for a few more days. Low temps for us on Sunday and Monday morning are predicted to be in the mid 40s so a little heat to knock off the chill will be needed.

    It's starting to look like "summer" is taking a vacation.

    Dry weather for the moment here in Maine. Our trees have finally greened up this week. Heck, my company has finally earned $170 from mowing 6 lawns. Nice to be able to mow lawns again. Alas Friday night and into next week we will be seeing on and off showers. Rain for a day and a half, then sun shines for a day. Rinse and repeat for about a week.

    MMM???? You realize this thread is a year old right? User Tocvdeer has copy and pasted his posts to ten different locations. Possibly to use the inbox and spam all the members where some boards require ten messages before the user can PM others

    Oh.... Poop !!! No I didn't see that the original post was a year old, but I WAS wondering about the spammer possibility. No wonder Jim ain't responded to my comment....lol. Btw, it only got down to 39, but I built a fire anyway. At least the post is current NOW.....

    Cool

    Had a cornucopia of rain snow sleet and high 60MPH winds yesterday. Our high only got to 37F yesterday. I've been burning full time but admit I have allowed the furnace to just hold coals for 8 to 9 hours a few days.
    Plan today is to bring another trailer load of wood to the basement.

    Wendell even a year later we still have wood on the porch and a little fire going this morning. We are down to the low 40s and have a 20 mph stiff wind. We are expecting gusts to 40 mph later today and frost tonight with near 30 degrees. We won't clean off our porch till the middle of May at the earliest. My internet connections lately have not been the best. I blame it on the weather. Bad storms missed us, however the wind did take down trees and powerlines. I have to check my fences but not till the wind lays.
