Roaming Brain Cells

Watson and I have had wondering thoughts today. There might be some old fashion rambling in this post today. I haven't done that in a while. It might be caused by "my spring" vanishing with a snap of my fingers or is it the cool temps today? The next 10 days looking like highs in the 60's when I am wanting those mid to high 70's back that I experienced before the rains and the cold front. Yet I shouldn't be complaining about the weather nor anything else. Reading about various online friends and their health issues pulls me back from any thoughts about complaining, especially something so minor as high temperatures. I am thankful for my good health.

Rain Headed Our Way

You cannot see the trees blowing in the wind, 20mph from the south, but rain is headed our way. A good chance it will be raining around midnight and all day tomorrow. The weather guessers are thinking an inch and a half of rain within the next 24 hours. I might get to see how well the backyard holds up with some grass now and a bunch of rain.

Hounds And Walter Enjoy Spring Weather

Even with the occasional severe storms that have blown through the month of April I cannot complain about the weather. It's been fantastic. It was getting really hot last week until the rains came bringing a cold front with it. So this week the hounds and Walter have experiences 40s at night and highs in the low 70s. Watson and Henry have been taking their walks in the morning in 50°-60° weather. Watson has a new problem I will discuss below.

Hotter Weather

Since I am posting early today it may seem like I am wasting great weather being inside putting this post together but I have been outside doing things all day today and still have more to do tomorrow. After the hounds and dog had their afternoon after lunch siesta I thought Watson might be up for some fetch ... but all of them just wanted to hang out and enjoy the 75° with a breeze.

Spring Has Arrived

Spring arrived today. Low 70s as the highs and a forecast that the week will only get hotter. Yard mowed with the backyard cut higher this year at 3", even measured with a tape measure to make sure. A short trip afterward in the Z4 with the top down. As you will see there is less Watson barking while the neighbors are outside enjoying the weather. Smoking chicken on the grill to combine with some steamed broccoli for dinner. Reds game at 6:20pm ... all is good.

Tornadic Activity Should Be North Of Us

No these photos are not from this morning but the past few days. It was still 76°last night after 8pm ... that's my kind of weather. I wanted to get a post out this morning before the forecasted severe storms pass through here, starting at noon. Luckily any tornadic activity should be a couple of hundred miles to the north of us. Yet, you never know until the time is near. Right now I have the windows open with a nice breeze, the rain from earlier this morning has stopped. The hounds and even Walter have been outside this morning.

Walter Said We're Good

About an hour after last nights post it started getting a little exciting. Storm systems blowing in at 70-80mph changed what I said real quick. We were good up to that point. Luckily and once again, the system blew south of us a few miles across the Ohio River. Yet one system seemed to bypass my side of town and ended up in the eastern part of town around I-69 and headed NE.
