The unusually warm weather this March has brought spring early to the Bluegrass; trees that usually don't bud, flower, and leaf until mid-to-late April have already done so! Hopefully a late cold snap won't damage delicate vegetation! Bugs have also come into spring with full force, with every type of buzzing everywhere!

Although most cams up north are still mostly brown, my "local" National Park Service cam at Mammoth Cave NP is showing considerable green, plus a bonus redbud on the side!
Extra greenery can be found in Washington, D.C., although you can't see the cherry blossonms from this cam.

Four new(for here) cams also grace this blog. Remember, if there is a cam from a past blog you'd like to see again, I've kept every blog in the WU archive, so you can just scan the old blogs until you find your favorite!

Good morning Ylee. Just dropped in to see if you have your new blog up yet. I have not opened the doors yet to feed the kitties but I would surmise we are not too much warmer than you. I am not planting anything til the end of the month. Anyway, I see you have not made it to the blog yet to change it, so will check back later. Have a great day dear one. I am feeling much better now..Been a rough couple of days. Just checked the temps, its 34F here. Not as bad as predicted.

Good evening! Big news here is a freeze wrning for us tonight! Probably get down to the upper 20s tonight; good thing I didn't plant anything!

If things go really well, there will be a new blog awaiting the dawn! Otherwise, it'll be ready tomorrow night!

Hi, Tony! The Weather Service says the high pressure that's giving us the cold weather came from Manitoba! Thanks! ;-)

ycd, Croatia geting some weather? Something had to cause those waves!

I checked the Kuala Lumpur cam for earthquake or Tsunami damage from the quake off Sumatra. No problem there but some waves are climbing the breakwater on Vodice.

I know Rob, but what can I say? It was 7PM, and I took a chance! If I had finished 10 minutes earlier, I would have saved it as a text file.

I won't rewrite it; it would fit yesterday, being the day after Easter, but not today. As outlandish as the story was, it left the smallest sliver of thought that there was the slightest chance that it could work, lol!

I usually try to bring out Earnest for holidays, so maybe on the Fourth of July there may be a new post! This time, I'll try to write it in advance! :)

Officially, the DC cam is "undergoing maintenance", Pros! It could last either a few hours or a few days, so as for when it'll be back, your guess is as good as mine!

Hey Ylee!

Cams seem to be working now, at least for me.
well...the servers are working, some cams not updating.
Sorry your post got lost. I too learned the hard way that if I'm gonna put a lot of work into something I should type it into a word processor and paste into a post.
Really a major bummer when it happens.

Anyway, hope your day goes well.

Good morning! A cool 45 degrees as I got up!

Cams are not well today, as the server for the DC and Mammoth Cave cams is down, as well as the Croat cam! I'll have to work on the new blog when I get caught up on what happened here last night!

What didn't happen last night was the post of the latest adventures of EarnestP! 2-3 hours of work went poof as I hit post! I know I should've saved to a text file first, but it was the end of the shift, and it was time to go home!

Pros, the DC cam is still stuck. I guess the NPS has computer problems like the rest of us!

A very early good morning Ylee.

The DC cam cannot be live, the view is a daylight scene yet in this area it is pitch dark still! Not even a hint of sunrise at the east horizon.
I notice that there is a bunch of people making their way down to the water edge at Scilly. Very pretty scene.

I hope that you are well and getting your rest and fun in between work.

Hi, Alley! I don't have anything planted yet except some turnips and radishes; They are just starting to come up, but I don't think a light frost will hurt them. Nothing else is going into the ground for at least another week, maybe longer if necessary!

I'm getting some inspiration; perhaps my alter ego may make a post today! ;-)

Hi Ylee, nothing out in the gardens yet to worry about even if we get a bit of frost over the next couple of days. By the weekend we will be in the mid 60s again. Looking forward to that. I won't be putting any plants in until the end of April. No use asking for trouble. Bulbs can go in but not tender plants. Gives me a good chance to do alot of trimming and marking out new flowerbeds now though with this decent weather.

Hey, cal! Make sure your son doesn't know you like this girl; he may dump her!(just kidding!)

Why aren't the wildflowers blooming? Lack of rain? Too cold?

You have blueberries in the greenhouse? Don't they take up a lot of space?

Have a good one!

Hi Ylee! I did not get a chance to wish everyone a Happy Easter so I am doing it today! We had a great time yesterday with my older son and his new girlfriend. I hope she will be a keeper, cause we really like her!!!!!

Two storms on the way here, we can use more rain so I am happy though I don't know if we will have any wildflowers this year. I sure haven't seen any at all.

Our frosts have ruined any chance for my nectarine tree to set fruit, though all the blueberries in the greenhouse are going to town!

Take care, Ylee!!

Thanks, Alley! Plays havoc with sinus sufferers, too, as I can attest! You'll probably get some near-or-below freezing weather, so be ready to cover your plants!

Good morning Ylee. Bright and sunny, temps going up into the low 60s today then a chill will set in this evening after we get some rain as a cold front moves through. Yup tomorrow our high is 48F. This kind of weather is what plays havoc with arthritis sufferers. I hope it soon stablizes.

Here is hoping you have a good Monday at work. Stay well...keep smiling.

Good morning! Back to the grind! It was 34 this morning at home, but it didn't frost for some reason! Thermometer may be off, I'm not sure! Supposed to have near freezing temps several days this week! I'm glad I hadn't set anything out yet!

Checked the DC and Mammoth Cave large versions and they are back, so I put those back in place of the stretched versions. If I have time, I'll start scouting for the new blog today!

Shore, I had already deduced whose graphic was whose, but thank you, anyway!

Jus, I'm sure with all the goings-on yesterday, it was an easy mistake! No harm done, and thank you! I wish I had the chance to reply in kind!

Hi Ylee -

I just read on my FB page that Yosemite enjoyed temps in the 70s today. We did too! But just hold on - we have two systems working their way down here with rain in our forecast (and maybe snow in theirs). Our winter isn't quite over yet!

I won't bother you with my day here at work; I've been here since 7AM, and I'll be here until 11PM. I had hoped to stop by and leave some Easter greetings, but it was not to be. Thank you, everyone, for your Easter wishes. I cannot see a single graphic any of you have sent me, but I know they come from the heart, and that's what counts!

Shore, the DC cam, as well as the Mammoth Cave cam, has been down since yesterday. The main picture is updating, but the large version isn't working. It won't take much to change them to the smaller version.

DC and the Beach cam are just gorgeous right now. Very, very pretty. Nice to have such nice images for such a nice day. Is that enough nice for you? LOL

Hope your day was great. I got out into the great outdoors yesterday, and had a fine time. I think my allergies got started, though. Either that or I need to dust this house more than I realized. Anyhow, I'm going to get things straightened up around here, try to get a new post done and then plunge into the work week. I can't remember if you're back tonight or tomorrow - or Tuesday - and I'm too lazy to back up and look. So I'll see you when I see you!

We went to the Pooch Parade and Roxie had a blast. So did we. The parade finished up about 20 minute before the big downpour started.

Tides rolling in at the Cornwall location, early morning flotilla of fishermen on the Whanganui River and along the bank, Yosemite is beautiful, too bad your Green River Valley cam is not working today.

Oh well, hopefully it will be a good day for you with nice warm temps. Catch ya later when I check back on those fishermen in NZ....LOL

Good morning Ylee,

I enjoyed looking at your cams this morning.

So are you going to get off tomorrow??? I am at work today also.. it was nice having an excuse to take off those 3 Saturday's in March...but I don't have any excuses for April... plus must be careful not to waste too many of my PTO days.

Just wanted to stop by and say Hello and


Have a Blessed and Happy Easter Weekend!

Hello to you - I didn't miss you as I was missing as well!
I am back - all visitors now have left and I have the house to myself again. It was bad planning on my part to invite folks to stay in consecutive weeks!
Never mind, I enjoyed their company, and they all seemed to have had a lovely time.
I got a large bunch of flowers and an Easter egg as thank you gifts!!

Talking of Easter - did you manage to get the grass cut before the egg hunt? Or will the kiddies tomorrow be hunting through elephant grass for their eggs??


Happy Saturday :)

I'm back! We're supposed to get some light frost tonight! Hopefully my clematis won't get bit!

The cams with daylight are looking well tonight! Since no one guessed the mystery cam location(admittedly, it wasn't easy, as there were not very many clues) the location was Tiangua, Brazil! I'll try an easier one next time!

Shore, I like the line about rain and stupidity! I might even steal it for my own use!:) Sorry you had a lousy week; what does that say about my work life here that you had to compare yours to mine? :)

ycd, we always kept our chickens penned. Every once in awhile, my grandma would clip their wings down so they couldn't fly. If any of them gave her any trouble, well, that's what we had on Sunday!;-)

Shen, the road in question was paved, and on a busy state road, at that. If it bleeds, then booze will work. A bottle of cheap vodka might've been cheaper than shotgun shells, IMO. Then you could've penned them and clipped their wings.Don't know what the vodka would've done to the eggs, though! :)

Alley, that was a good find on the Panama Canal cam! aotn's had a cam on this blog before(I can't remember which one), but someone messed up, because the cam should be under Panama in the directory, not Miami!
Are you keeping warm? Supposed to be in the 30s here tonight!

Hey, Trauma! Staying out of trouble? :)

Hi, Ylee,

Just poking my nose in to look at the cams and see if you'd come into work. I had a Ylee-like week. It was not only frustrating, it was totally non-productive, and it kept going downhill. The only difference I could find between rain and stupidity is that eventually the rain will stop. ;)

Have a good evening - I'm off to catch a few emails that piled up while Comcast was non-functional again....

#93: coincidently my Border Collie was named Cal (Short for "Came A Long") and he and I chased the hybrid chickens about the yard for a while. I caught one by the tail feathers one night part way up a tree and the bird flew away and landed in another tree. All I had was the feathers. Cal was good at exhausting the runaways so I could grab them. I don't remember him ever hurting a bird. And I did not mean to pull them feathers out, just wanted to put the hen in the house for the night.

Quoting Ylee:
Cal, it's just too dang soon for this heat; this is June weather we're having, not the 60s/40s we normally have this time of year!

There was a guy who lived a few miles up the road that had ginueas, but the moron let them run in the road until they were all run over! :(

Good luck on the ginueas!
Maybe the poor fellow wanted to get some sleep. Definitely not a dirt road, those birds are quick. Maybe it was like me and the Fighting Cock/bantam crosses we had. Once they got out there was no catching them because they roosted in the top of the tallest tree in the yard and were impossible to sneak up on. Talked about soaking a bunch of feed with booze see if that would slow them down. Figured it was a waste of booze, don't think they marinade from the inside out. Finally wound up shooting them when they destroyed the neighbors tomato patch. Hated to do it they were beautiful animals.
