Last year, we had a very mild winter by northeast Indiana standards. This spring and summer, we could barely stand to be outdoors because of the mosquitoes. All the insects were a lot, lot worse here. We even had some I've never seen before...cave crickets! Strange looking little buggers and we're still finding them outside and sometimes indoors. When I see them in the house, I go on a bugspray rampage. I just can't deal with them hopping towards me whenever I get near them. Those little jokers hop out of nowhere and scare the crap outta me!

This winter so far, has reminded me of 1998. No snow on Christmas and then we got hammered from Jan. 1st through the next couple of weeks. Schools got a month long Christmas break. Everytime they got the roads cleared, we'd get hammered again. A lot of people have compared this year to 1978. The state of Indiana really got hammered hard in a blizzard in January of that year. While I'd rather not be snowed in like people were in '78, I do hope we get some good freezes so the insects, molds, etc. will be less this spring and summer. I spent way too much on bug repellant, home and yard insecticides and allergy meds this past year.

Bad news Dats. I sent all our snow south. So far this month, we have 33.6" and, of course, none of it has melted.

You can stop sending it now. We got over 100" in December, and the vast majority hasn't melted yet.

Actually, I like winter -- at least until about the first of March. I wouldn't have lived here 37 years if I didn't like winter.

Thought I'd like to introduce my new line of BBQ stuff:

For a limited time, send $50 and I'll send you a quart box of genuine Colorado Snow in a recycled styrofoam cooler. Use the snow as a mop for your butts and briskets. Add $5 for "seasoned snow", don't let the yellow color turn you off.

I miss the snow. We don't have any up here at all. I am wearing my birks everyday because it is so warm.

Sadly all of our local ski resorts are having to lay off all of their people first time ever. The largest just laid off 1400 people yesterday. It is hitting our economy up here very very hard.

We need the snow for tourism.

This is not good at all.

Here's a pic of my Weber kettle in my back yard.



If you look closely you can see moose tracks to the left of the kettle. A cow moose was in my backyard about 8 this morning. I tried to take pics but it was still too dark.

It's much to warm here, high70's - low 80's. We're going to have a terrible mosquito problem in the spring if this keeps up.
