    Wind does not suck until it gets over 200mph.. Then it really sucks. Mostly it blows.

    "Dad, come shovel the snow for me."

    'Show me a picture of the snow.'

    "Oh, here it is"

    'Oh shit that is deep. Did I ever tell you that you were adopted?'

    The melt has begun. Yesterday was the 1st day that it started at my house. Pretty soon I hope to start another kind of "melt"

    Still a while here before it looks much like spring. What most call "spring", we divide into three mini-seasons: "mud season", then comes "planting season", followed by and/or concurrent with black fly season. That will get us well into June.

    Melt has begun here, just barely, but we have weeks more of winter sports and one major holiday (Irish New Year) before we're up to our waists in mud and everyone goes on vacation.

    All of the gongs on our range are under several feet off snow still. Well, you can see the very top of the 100yd gong, but the bottom is frozen in solid and it won't ring when you hit it. It's a major snowshoe expedition to change paper or clay targets. We have clothesline targets for out to 25yds, so they will keep us busy until the gongs and long range target boards reappear from the snowbanks and we can get back to some serious practice and testing.

    Early spring in PA = it isn't snowing, things are starting to melt and mud season started wherever the grass is showing.

    Not much run off melting since last time I posted. I plowed again last Sunday and the weather guessers say I'll need to again this weekend.
    Lost the power for 3 hours a couple of days ago because of 50mph wind gusts.

    On the warmer sunny days I get both ice + mud in my driveway. I wonder how deep the frost went this year?

    Locals are guessing that ice out in the big lake will be in June.
