West Danville's up in the Northeast Kingdom, which means it's mud season, leading into black fly season, then mosquito season, then there's a nice break with firefly season--if they're still around; I hear they're disappearing and it's been a while since I've been up there in the summer.

Mr. Joe and his ice - he thinks he's so cool.

Does this mean Bernie gets to take the mittens off and go back to punching moose and maple trees or whatever weird shiat he does in his spare time?

The high of 95 and low of 71 makes it the official start of Texas summer, two weeks ago.  Vermont must be French for air conditioning.

I knew it was spring when I saw that the seagulls are back at Wal-mart.

/ in Montana.
//They're on their way to Salt Lake City.

Yeah.  Even better, they do it all over the place, because it MAKES MONEY.

I know there's a dozen old cars somewhere around here, just about to fall through the ice.

Awesome.  That means it's almost ski season.

At least the mud is just about dried.  Getting excited for the black flies.  Saw a mosquito yesterday.

That is a weird but entirely accurate method of seasonal prognostication, lolz

Weird? The Romans made a whole religion out of predicting the future by watching birds.

And occasionally cutting them open.

Have you heard how sheep's bladders may be employed to prevent earthquakes?

A creek runs through my family farm. Just past our farm, the creek started eroding the bank and cutting into our neighbor's field in the 1970s. His solution: he bought about 10 junk cars and pushed them vertically up against the bank that was washing out. The erosion stopped.

The fact that there was a line of cars flipped up on their ends in the creek bed didn't seem to phase anyone--farmers around there were extremely pragmatic. If dumping half a junkyard stopped the creek from washing out the field, great.

Anyway, over time, nature did its thing, and the cars were buried under vegetation and a new bank. Then, a few weeks ago, there was a massive rainfall and flood. When the water subsided, there was the line of old cars, out in the open, again.

Just a weird thing...

Where is the alarmist headline about how this is the earliest date since [insert some long length of time, but ignore prior earlier dates] that the block has sunk so we can portray this as the result of Global Warming™?
