March 4, 2015 – march means more mild weather and mud


Notes for today: Friends, who are temporarily visiting Seattle, have sent me a photo of a rhododendron in full bloom, via Facebook. Meanwhile, to the south, in California, there’s a mega drought. Here in Massachusetts, 15 horses have been rescued after snow collapsed a barn roof in Norwell. My warnings about Phoebe and the Great Horned Owl have continued. The latter were silent today in the Eastern Pine Woods, although AB heard them a bit earlier at the golf clubhouse hill. Spring 2015 is almost here.

Today’s Weather. See last month’s Weather Calendar OR this month’s.
