well, I'm between eye operations, about 3 days till next one.  So, I figured now that the dock is in the water, it would be a good two days to get the boat ready.

It is in driveway now, so new oil, filter, lower gear lube.  Lots of scrubbing and some wax.  Somewhere I had a layup list with electrical issues..poor memory!

greasy finger nails, just like  my teen years.

Spring is my favorite time of year.

I think we have enough water to float a boat down the street. Oh well, At least the deer and antelope should have enough to eat for a while.
I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.

Wing,
  Holly crap, you guys got almost 2" of rain from that last storm.  We (in Missoula) got 1/4 inch.Cry  We are way behind on rain, and we've had below normal  temperatures for the last 3 months.

While much of the country, especially the West, has drought conditions, here in Pennsylvania we've had normal water levels for the last 10 years.  We seem to get more rain from the south, pumping up the Mississippi/Ohio valley.  Our lawn seem to grow about 4" a week.

Right on Dale.  We've been going from cold weather to very hot weather overnight.  The summers of the last number of years have been very hot and very dry.  As a gardener I keep track of planting times, heat, cold, and moisture.  Things have definitely changed over the years. Wasn't last year the driest on record for your area?

You're right Lizard. We got two inches from one storm then a few days later got 1 1/2 inches and the night before last, yesterday, and until about noon today we got another 1 1/2 inches. 

This was desperately needed. the last two years we haven't got much moisture at all. 

The antelope are looking good. The does should be dropping fawns soon. I haven't seen any yet but they might have already started. 

This is the greenest I've seen it in several years.

Most have twins.

I really like seeing twins. 

They probably have started here too but I haven't seen a baby yet.
