After that long summer weather stretch,you just knew it was going back the other way.Mother Nature does correct itself at some point.Cold front just passed with strong wind gusts,still somewhat mild,but temps will start to drop this afternoon. and tonight teens and 20's with wind chills in the single digits.Fruit trees are definitely at risk as the blossoms have broken out in most areas.The real cold weather won't stay around long,but no 60's or 70's in the near future.

Thanks,Mass,I've looking at a lot of Do it yourself videos on youtube,but I'll check that out also.I have no doubt I'll have muscles aching that I didn't even know I had.But with all remodeling projects when its done,I'll have that satisfaction looking at the finished product.

Hi again NEw!

Hope your reconstruction project goes smoothly over the extended weekend. You and the wife sound like the perfect candidates for that home renovation show (one of my favorites to watch) on the "Do It Yourself" TV network. Just in case you run into any snags and could use some free helpful professional advice, I thought I'd link you up to the DIY direct webpage. One never knows what costly and timely problems can ensue while taking on what initially seems like a reasonable project. Couldn't hurt to seek out free professional advice if you've cornered yourself! LOL! Also, make sure to have plenty of aspirin and/or analgesic cream on hand for those resulting aches and pains of hard labor! LOL! I've seen how sore and tired some of the young DIY'ers claim to be at the end of the day and can only imagine what our generation would have to say while tackling the same project. LOL!!!

Hi,Mass
Anytime I have to get on my roof,I'm very careful,aside from the fact I don't like heights anyway.
So no my boss is not in town,I was referring to Springsteen appearing at the TD Garden tonight.If my boss was in town,I would go in hiding,would not be able to do any blogging.Here's hoping he stays in California.
This really is a shock to plants and people and animals.How easily we had slipped into the warm weather mode,but all a distant memory.I knew better and didn't put any sensitive plants outside.
I will be off THurs. and Friday as I start my construction project.I so hope everything goes smoothly.Wife is nervous enough as it is without running into snags.
Have a good day and hopefully no wayward sparks land anywhere,especially in this wind out there.

Good Morning NEw!

How sad to learn of the fatal accident you posted below. Whenever anyone goes up even one level of a rooftop, it is wise to affix one's ladder and self to a very solid, secure fixture. These dangerous incidents can happen in a blink of an eye, especially, when having to handle much more than the sides of a ladder. My sympathy to his family. Fifty is far too young to perish in this or any other fashion.

When you say "the 'Boss' is in town", I realize the video's regarding Bruce Springstein, but is that also code for meaning your boss is also in town? If so, yikes, what a downer that would be compared to such a great event and entertainer! LOL!

It's quite remarkable how much our weather has changed in one week! The only remnants of last week's glorious summer-like weather are the now stunned blooms on all the plants and trees. They almost look freeze-dried. LOL! Nevertheless, hopefully, there isn't too much damage caused by this unseasonal event, as it looks like we may experience a few sub-freezing overnight temps this week along with the much chillier (40ish) daytime ones. BRRRR and BOOOO!

We're also keeping a wary eye out for any/all flammable brush and tinder that surrounds our home or neighborhood due to the very lengthy dry spell causing current fire hazard warnings. Guess that's the down side of living in a countrified or woody area in New England. Hope that a few April showers will somehow arrive a bit earlier to thoroughly moisten, but not swamp, our very parched ground, etc.

Hope your work week runs smoothly enough and all is well with you and your family! Will try and check back later in the week. I'm swamped with essential chores right now.

UPDATED @ 9:59 p.m. March 25: The man who died after a College Township accident Sunday has been identified as Ken Reeves, 50.

His employer, Ferguson Township-based AccuWeather, confirmed his identity in a statement late Sunday night. Reeves was a vice president, general manager and senior meteorologist for AccuWeather Inc. Television Network.

He died after falling from the roof of his Lemont home shortly before 5 p.m., police said. He had been taking down Christmas lights when he fell, according to a preliminary police report.

According to AccuWeather, Reeves is survived by his wife, Raychel; his parents; a brother; and a sister. He graduated from Penn State in 1983, according to the weather forecasting company.
