    Wayne you must be having some of our weather! Although cold 29F, I can see grass and train!! And NO snow!!
    Weird for this time of year? but I am okay with it.

    How much snow did you get Wayne? We received mostly sleet, but also got a 1/2" of snow and some freezing rain.

    Dman, About the same as you. I'll be able to resume training tomorrow. I did some yard work this afternoon. My main concern was the ground being so wet already (from the recent heavy rains) and tearing up my neighbors yard or getting stuck in the fields.
    The snow was pretty much gone by mid afternoon.

    I'll be in your neighborhood tonight around 10 or 10:30 and will remain until Thursday afternoon. Hopefully things wont freeze over tonight between Texarkana and Dallas.

    This has been an very up and down spring. Monday forecast is 90 degrees. Thursday forecast 60 degrees. Yesterday I checked the water temp at one of the ponds in our development-69 degrees.

    I wanted to resume swimby yesterday. But I couldn't get the garage door open. The spring broke so I couldn't open the door in manual mode either. Repairman showed up in the afternoon. $415 later the garage door opens. So Rowdy and I will go back to work Monday.

    Dang, it was 107 degrees by the dog kennel (in the shade) at 4 pm today. But there is a cold front on the way. It will only be 89 on Monday.
