Spring

Recommended Posts

Even though the groundhog said 6 more weeks of winter, the weather, and other observations beg to differ.

 

Skunks and such moving around.  Killed my first mosquito.  Saw 11-12 deer moving on the other side of the creek. 

All but 65 ° here today.

 

And THE NEIGHBOR HAD HER GARDEN TILLED YESTERDAY !!!!!

 

Anyone else? Is it really time to get the tiller out?

What I'm reading today is calling for a major snow storm for Midwest and west. Their saying up to 1 foot of snow.

I tilled mine last fall and just need to run through it real quick but believe I'll wait a while longer.

It is t shirt weather here today but we'll wait and see

It's been a nice stretch, but I can't believe winter is completely behind us.  It's been in the 60's here for a week, but they say rain/snow and back into the low 30's for highs.

 

This morning the radio guys were marveling at the weather, and threw out a neat fact.  In Grand Rapids this morning at 6am, it was 70 degrees warmer than this same day/time 2 years go.  Can you imagine an August day being 70* COLDER than a year prior?  I don't even think that would be possible, but in February, we just wear a lighter jacket when the opposite occurs.

Hello, The daffodil sprouts are 2 inches  tall  , usually they show until end of march,  maybe mother  nature knows something we don't.

Gotta love Michigan weather!!  I have done  some yard cleanup

 

Thanks Ken inMi

Western New York fruit farmers are worried and complaining (for good reason) trees are starting to bud....

A good freeze now will really hurt this years crops.

We also have daffodils popping up before the crocus'

A little warmer here in the Phila area compared to Greg.  Was about 71 or so. 

My neighbor and I agreed not disturb the snow equipment, because if we did, we'd get a snow storm for sure.  But I wouldn't mind one last big one.  Some seat time and at this time of year, it's always a pretty quick melt.

NW Milwaukee was missed for snow but some hard claps of thunder were so loud that made I could hear my teeth rattle in their glass. sm01 News reported that a couple of residential roofs took lightning strikes and caused major damage.

Lots of money on the line here in midwest and western Wi with cherries /apples ect. These warm and early springs are killer in more way than one.

I can wait a few more weeks.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
