By mid-July, the snowblower will be parked and all oil selection data will be forgotten on those machines. Snow tires will be stored, frozen engine and engine heaters will be forgotten and a new series of overheated engines will begin and so on,,, the crisis will start again, but in a new category of hot weather and oil selection in the desert will begin..imho..

What's your predictions??


turn in your old jackets, shirts and other clothes to a Salvation Army or any homeless shelter this year...

Mid July? April 1st is my guess. I ran the A/C on my truck yesterday but the weather guessers are calling for a snow/sleet/rain mix for tonight and tomorrow!

Beautiful here in DFW. A Sou'wester came through. I failed to drain the gas out of my Toro but with fresh gas it started right up.

I'm going to wake up tomorrow and watch the snow come down all - day - long.

Hopefully the last, time for spring.

Snowing here in North/central Kentucky this evening, 1-3" expected overnight. Hasn't been terribly warm lately, but I expect road surface temperatures are high enough to prevent any freezing or dicey conditions on the roads.

Sometimes I think about the temperature swings we see here in Ohio in just a few months and it really is amazing.

We're past last frost / freeze here as the mesquite has started leafing out. I've only seen the mesquite get fooled once all the years I've lived in Texas.

I forecast a great BBQ season kicking off!
