?? YOUR THOUGHTS ??
« on: February 22, 2016, 01:20:14 PM »
We were up around the Milford area last weekend for a little vacation and spotted 2 ROBINS and a Bluebird.

I think Mother Nature is really confused this year.

I saw them a few weeks ago but didn't want to be a downer ao I kept it under my hat. Robins and bluebirds have been around for a while. Chalk it up to a very mild winter. We were all lucky to get out at all this season.

yeah, that el-nino tried to ruin our winter but the ACTIC VORTEX pulled through enough to give us at least a little season.

I like to use turkey vulture sightings to gage when it's getting to be that time of year.   It seems that when I have the first sighting of turkey vulture the ed ND of the season is near. 

By the way I had one circling above my house two days ago.

Short season, but nothing we could do about it.  Gear is put away and the tomato seeds will be started in my sunroom at the end of the week.  The only consolation is that I got to stick it to PP&L this winter.

Just retired from PP&L after 35 years.  Please stick it to them once for me too.  What was once a great job got ruined by idiot management.   >:(

I saw robins 2 weeks ago in the Allentown area, but I kept my trap shut.  Watching ice melt makes me want to cry.   :(

Gladly Brillfan.  We even turned off the heat over the weekend.  I retired myself last April and was looking forward to a full ice season.  Hopefully I'll survive the heat, stay above the sod line, and pray for arctic weather in December.
