given up accommodations for sledding at this moment.
No forcasts of any snow but there's no ruling out a
wink and a giggle from Mother Nature to show us just
who is calling the shots.
Recent thawing temps, some rain & wind have
zapped the bulk of the snows to where the most snows
left (which are just tiny islands of dirty white

Open area's are melted off and bare and/or soggy
from the last of the melting snows.
Light rains are in the picture on and off through to
the coming mid-week. We may see some icing during
the overnight hours Friday night and Saturday night.
Daytime highs should hang around the high 30's o low
40's for the weekend before a subtle gradual rise
into the mid 50's by Wednesday.
A lot of trees and power lines were downed from strong
winds this week.
If you aren't up for the weekend, ya might give
a friend or neighbor a call to scope out your
property to get a handle if it was spared or
Deer and other woodland critters are beginning to
venture about more and more as the snows subside and

Keep the speed down
and your eye's peeled especially during your
travels from dusk to dawn.

Stay clear of Permethrin
in your insecticide/tick repellent products. It
just keeps on killing. Not only the insect but
things that feed on the insect too. Like so many
chemicals, this stuff just doesn't decompose.
