Air temperature 35 F, calm, high thin clouds for the newspaper walk. Supposed to warm up into the 50s F again, maybe reaching 60. Puttering around time.

First shadbush blooming, another patch of coltsfoot, some forsythia in town. Red maples blooming in the bog, and skunk cabbage flower hoods showing.

Temperature got up into the middle 50s F, sunny, not a lot of wind. Got out on the bike. One squashed gray squirrel, doesn't qualify for a roadkill report.

With that precision, you may deduce my switch to the road bike, with the bike computer.

But it is an insufficient number of degrees F to entice me out for a bike ride.

Asparagus bed cleared, with a couple of stalk noses showing.

Air temperature 37 F, calm, mostly cloudy. Supposed to clear off and get up into the 50s F later, which should allow some yardwork and raises hopes of a bike ride.

Continued cold and wet gloom.

Air temperature 36 F, overcast, wind east about 5 mph for the newspaper walk.  We continue damp and chilly.  Some of the stuff that fell last night showed lumps -- mixed precip, melted now.

I continue to self-censor, because I am afraid of some of you.

Variant to watch for on the "Can you hear me?" scam calls -- several of our recent ones have included reference to emergency services.

Raining now.  Discouraging day, scattered showers and damp, with high temperature about 42 F.

Tropical storm Arlene in the North Atlantic.  In April.  And NOAA is on the chopping block . . .

Overcast and 38 F, light mist, wind east about 5 mph for the newspaper walk. Supposed to rain off and on all day, perhaps mixing with snow if we've moved north or into the mountains.

People have filters that don't allow them to see or hear things that contradict their beliefs.

Air temperature 33 F, mixed precip. The official meteorologist's term for this is "yuck."

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.

It's really a damned shame that oratorical bullshit has no fertilizer value.

Also not yet dead. Air temperature 34 F, calm, mostly cloudy for the newspaper walk. Wan sunshine now. Bike ride remains in suspense.

Do not comment on news stories. People do not want facts.

Wimp. Air temperature 45 F, wind N about 10 mph, substituted walk for the bike ride I was hoping to sneak in.
