Spring has Sprung

    I have a sales rep in Ann Arbor and I know he got hit with heavy snow this week.

    Me I got up early today and put down 100 lbs of weed and feed.
    I then shocked and backwashed the pool.
    This PM I will take my daughter around to the local creek to see if we can catch some tadpoles for school.

    It is sunny and in the 70's here today.:biggrin:
    I will be mowing the yard by the end of the month.:(

    Next up I will have to remove some shrubs from in front of the house and replace. I'll reseed, Bermuda Sahara in April.

    Enjoy your weekend.

    You been here?

    How long ago?
    It is rapidly changing into what I call Metarie North.

    Oh, I'll enjoy my weekend. It involves stripping wallpaper off the kitchen walls while looking out the windows at the fresh 8 inches of snow we received a few days ago. On the weather front, it may hit a balmy 40 degrees Monday followed by a return to the 20's and snow.

    Of course, it is my fault I live in this hell hole. Have a beer while cleaning the pool for me.
     
  5. yes, a lot 10-12 years ago, id go down there a few times a year. i was down there once in a grocery store when they called out flurries. i never really liked the south, but mandeville was real nice, i dunno why

    Today it's the warmest it's been here in weeks -- 35 degrees! Next year I need to make sure to take a vacation in February, because this weather can get you down. Manfred heard about a job opening in Tucson and wanted to know if he should apply. Sounds really appealing right now!

    I left Ohio in 1986 and never had an urge to move back.
    Summers are miserable here but the spring, winter, and fall are a treat.
    We had snow flurries here on Christmas day and I think back in 1993 they had some also.

    Jimotis, you would not recognize Mandeville now.
    To me it is like a lot of other suburbs across the country.
    Upper middle class, some families have both parents working, lots of kids, good public schools, clean, friendly place. Still a good mix of undeveloped and developed land. The developers and the citizens are at war and the parish council is right in the middle. Traffic, schools and drainage are big issues.

    Another reason you may have liked Mandeville is that most of the people here are probably from somewhere else, other than the south. This is where people transferred to NOLA moved.

    I could pick this place up and set it down anywhere and it would fit in.

    Most of my family ended up in the Tucson area.
    Almost the same thing happened there that happened here.
    Lots of development, maybe more lower class.
    The summers are doubly miserable there.

    Home is where you make it, I'm very glad I opted for a little more southern exposure. I hope next hurricane season does not make me change my mind.
     
  8. christmas of 93 sounds about right on the 'snow' that i remember.

    It snowed here in Columbus today, but the sun is out, and quite warm. Spring will really begin to peek it's head out here in a few weeks. Mid 70's is what I would term late spring, early summer around here. :biggrin:

    Bucknola,

    I lived in Tucson for a year and loved it, and yes, the summers are hot, but I adapted pretty well (and it's not as hot as Tempe, where I lived for a few years). I loved being able to do things outside most days; it certainly helps when trying to stay in shape. We would also be able to get more for our money there. The high rent in Boston is killing us. The thing that sucks about Tucson is the job market. It would be very hard for me to find a job there (in my field).

    Nola... same here. It was a beautiful day... 70 and sunny, I had to work in the AM but we took the kids out shopping in the afternoon and just got back from dinner. It will be highs of 70 and lows of 50 for the next few weeks :) although it did get up to 80 earlier this week. I DO NOT miss winters... yet.

    You too, LoKy, but at least you didn't start a thread about it. :biggrin:

    Brr...

    I won't rub it in anymore :)

    but we did stop at Siesta Key and walk on the beach :)

    Siesta Key is one sweet spot.
    Hard to choose between the sand at destin and SK.

    I worked at the power generation plant in Bradenton.
    Spent a lot of time on the beach there.
    Always cool to grab a drink at one of the beach bars and watch the sun go down.
    Fort Myers, Sarasota and Bradenton used to be a nice area.

    It just means we get a few more months to work on the yard.
    I might consider a trade, a LA July for a tundra March?

    No tadpoles, kids had tennis lessons.

    More yardwork... ok, maybe a more lukewarm brand of evil... :biggrin: And that trade looks a little less than appealing... ok, I'll stay here for now.

    Weather was one of the nicer aspects of living in Utah. You hear about the "dry heat," but a "dry cold" is definitely more comfortable than what we get in Wisconsin.
