Looks like I beat you up this morning! That's ok - I'll leave a little greeting before I take off for work and check back later. Have a good day!

Tony, what is this that you say, more snow on the Prairies this week. That is crazy man. It's May, snow should be a thing of the past by now. Oh I have a feeling we are seeing the 50s remake of snow on June 24th.

Good to hear that the flooding issue has now been downgraded. Not only is it good for you folks but also those further down the system.

Take care of yourself Tony. Do be careful out there and for sure don't put away your winter clothes just yet.

Ah, the mud season approaches! There's a reason all the midwesterners - especially the farmers - had "mud rooms". It was like a DMZ, for sure. You had to cross it before mom would let you in the house. (DMZ stands for de-mudded zone, of course!)

Hi, Tony! Glad to hear that the flooding isn't too bad this year! I guess a long, drawn out winter does has its' advantages(fewer days to mow, too!)

Hope you and Abbey get some more walks in before it gets cold again!
