spring rain

Yesterday’s phenology: A perfectly delightful day. After a night of rain, it rained a bit more during the day. Mostly overcast and cool and breezy. The temperature was 51 just after midnight, and has been dropping all day, and now it’s about 40. There were reports of snow up in Grand Marais, and there’s frost warnings north of the Twin Cities. Cool!

Song of the day: Sly and the Family Stone, Everybody is a Star

Yesterday’s Phenology: Another day of stormy skies and rain. Much too nice to spend at work, and yet, there we were. Nice thunderstorm in the evening, just after dinner.

Song of the day: Tom Waits, Make It Rain & Rain Dogs

On the shore at the dogpark, the shiney shells catch my eye. How long before they get worn away?

Yesterday’s Phenology:  A pretty near perfect day. 77 or so. Noted a lone egret standing in the pond, looking kind of lonely. Though he was with a lot of geese and ducks. Our raspberry plants are heavy with fruit, which is just starting to be ready to pick. Noticed a tree by the pond, a maple, starting to turn a bit. That’s the first one that I’ve seen, really.
