    Here in the high desert, east of the Sierras, where we're supposed to have the types of Blizzards that made the Donners eat each other... we're dry as a bag of bones. It hasn't precipitated since early December. We've been running around in our shirt-sleeves and it's scheduled to be in the 70's this week. For the first time since I moved here in '89 it'll be warm enough to do water work in March. Only problem is there won't be any water.

    Dang, wind gusting to 45 mph and sustained at 36 mph. Plus more cold coming.
    It is extremely dry here. Had a fire at training grounds. Hay truck caught grass on fire. Good news was that it was a relatively calm day and fire was contained.
    I have stopped using primers unless on bare ground. We need rain!
    Guess I'll stay home this morning.

    Your weather must be rough if you consider sustained winds of 36 mph to be "a relatively calm day"

    Oregon weather has been great. Gets down into the 30's at night, back up to 50 during the day. Clear blue sky's. I wish our summer was this nice...

    Keep all that snow down south. LOL!
    I ran a couple crosswind blinds today but then gave up as the wind gusts made standing difficult. Going to be 75 tomorrow and then another cold front.

    I tried to run some stand alone marks. The temp 25F was much better but the wind lowered the temp. Very difficult to train in that crosswind but we did four good marks and then some indoor work. Can hardly wait for better weather. 70F Wayne sounds real good. We have snow slated for this evening and Saturday they are saying 4-6" coming. LOL getting in the water here by end of April!
