Welcome to Spring

March 21, 2010

It’s officially spring here, even if the weather isn’t so sure. Yesterday it was in the 70s. Tomorrow the high is in the 40s, with rain of course. But the important part is that we actually had a few days of sunshine. Right before the sunshine came back out, we had some stormy weather. As I pulled into the parking lot at the office the next morning, I noticed a mass of rusted metal on the ground next to the house across the street.

Watertower roof on the ground

I didn’t think too much about it at first because there were some guys working around that house the previous day. Then someone came in and asked if we saw where the roof of the water tower almost hit the house. You can just see the legs of the water tower on the other side of the house. I was amazed that there wasn’t much damage to the house. It looks like they’ll have to replace a few shingles but that’s about it.

How I hate the time change. This year I decided to get ahead of it and change my clocks on Friday night instead of Saturday. That worked out really well, by the way. Then as I was washing out my coffee pot on Sunday, I hit it against the sink and it broke. (whimper) I have several backup coffee pots but it was just one more thing to throw me off schedule. The whole week seemed to go like that. That first week after the time change is always tough.

Why ferrets and Styrofoam don’t mix.

I made the mistake of putting a piece of styrofoam in a trash can that the ferrets can reach.

Yes, that is a trail of styrofoam going down the hall.

See the trail of little white dots in the hall? That’s bits of styrofoam.

    You totally can’t prove that he was in the styrofoam! Nope, not at all.

    Yikes about the watertower!

    Your weather sounds like ours, although we haven’t had any storms, and our temps are about 10 degrees less for the peaks.

    I was always worried when I was a teenager that the watertower next to my house would fall down and crush my bedroom…I guess my fears weren’t so ridiculous! Looks like that watertower was in bad shape though.

    Sytrofoam and animals is always a funny combination!

    We are finally looking to have some spring like weather this week, and of course its just in time for the weekend we can’t do anything about it as we are stuck inside getting the house ready for guests!

    Wow, the occupants of that house must be leading a charmed life!

    Now, what made you think Clyde had anything to do with the styrofoam trail? I mean, really – that sweet face would never lie!

    We have sunshine today! And, we had at least one day over the weekend that felt like SPRING!! And, my irises are in bloom!! I’m going to share pictures soon 🙂

    Take care!!

    You did it again! Your ferret escapades make me bust out laughing every time! That picture of Clyde is hysterical! I think he needs a lint roller!
