That ice is too much for me!  I grew up in midwest and spent a few years in upstate NY near Lake Ontario.  I can't handle the cold winters, mentally as much as physically.  Spud  you are made of tougher stuff than I am!

Randy, I have seen a few cranes or herons here. I'm not familiar enough to know the difference.  I put out hummingbird feeders last week by the kitchen window.  There have been several visits.  I believe they are "Anna's Hummingbird" which overwinter here.  Rufous hummingbirds come in May I think. 

I was looking through the Stark's catalog.  They have butternut trees that claim to start bearing in 2-3 years.  I have enough room  if I want to take the chance.  That compares to most of the pecans, 5-7 years, hickory nut 8-10 years.  Should I believe it and try?  They are related to black walnut, should be deer resistant but possibly nothing will grow under them.

Around here, no icicles but plenty of robins. And I've never seen so many sandhill cranes fly over--and so early! Thousands and thousands of them. Our 8 day streak of over 60 will end tomorrow--high of 35. Ugh. Shock to the system.

Nasty Mosquitoes and Nats!  I hate the buggers.  I get very few here in the city.

A beautiful picture, Spud! I´ve never seen icicles that big here.

Spud, our area of ky hasn't had any snow this year. And very little cold weather.
I remember when I was young and my dad used to say we needed a long cold spell to thin out the mosquitoes. I didn't understand the connection. Now I say the same things. I understand that cold is essential to our environment to kill out many destructive insects and make room for the beneficial ones.
Mosquitoes and nats were biting yesterday when I was working in the yard.

Couldn't post this last month because my camera battery was discharged and I couldn't find the charger.  There were 3 of these humongous icicles on my house that reached the ground.

And we won´t stop protesting!

Chris, crack pot's are taking over governments everywhere. The only consolation I can find are the protest against the bigotry and hatred. Town Hall meetings are becoming very active against the alt right.

Joan, thanks for the link to the storing nuts article (above). I learned a few things.

Today is our 7th consecutive day of over 60 degrees. We've broken all sorts of records in Indiana. I'm killing myself (like Kathy) doing too much--yard work, golf, even cut a load of wood.

It´s not after Trump yet.. elections here in a few weeks and I´m afraid our local Trump clone wins.
