Wednesday - Mostly cloudy, with a high near 54

Several years ago I read an article from a scientist talking about global cooling. He was not a global warming denier but said that lack of sunspot activity would offset (and then some) the effects of CO2 and would last as a mini ice age for about fifty years. Then. if CO2 wasn't fixed and sunspot activity returned to normal it would get REALLY hot.

Anyway his predicted year for the start of this cool down was 2018, FWIW.

Question: Where do tickets for the spring football scrimmage game sell out in twenty four hours? Nebraska of course. This in a ninety thousand plus stadium. Smiling, happy faces hoping that the Mike, BO, Bill era is finally over. Corn, beans, cows, pigs and the Cornhuskers, that explains it all.

Nebraska state capitol tour was the first of what has become an interesting hobby. Enjoyed the unused (except for receptions?) Senatorial chambers and have used the threat of a unicameral to silence pseudo fiscally conservative state legislators. "Why don't we replace you with a thirty seat unicameral? We have the Internet and you should be able to serve a lot more constituents with fewer politicians." Makes 'em turn pale when you hit them with that in public meetings.

Keep your fingers crossed you may be past the last frost of the year but don't put any big money on it.

Right you are Johnny. Frost is not the second coming ,but many Cornhusker fans are so down in the dumpers because of the last eighteen years that a losing season where Nebraska actually showed up would be hope for better fall Saturdays. Time will tell.

Yah, I plan to shift into spring/ summer mode. Swap positions of the blower and the mower. Take down the center props in the tents. Put the snow shovels away and fence the beds.

I just swapped out the snow tires on both vehicles yesterday and today. Oil change in the truck (car last week-end) and both vehicles given a bath. Cheers2

Hopefully tomorrow I can final get my son's snowmobile and trailer put away. Like most on here I assume, I am way behind!
