You may have heard that it’s weathering up here in High Country.


Ronan considers his options…


Hope it’s lovely where you are, too.

  1. I just got back from running in shorts and a t-shirt. I think it’s in the mid 70s. 🙂 Of course, I’d rather be there then here, but that’s another story…

  2. Is that second picture an image of the rare, dare i say “mythical” beast known as the black tauntaun? that’s some impressive weather.

    we only got baseball-sized hail yesterday. i guess it’s not a big deal down here. still, where i come from, any hail large enough to remove windshields is significant.

  3. We’ve only gotten a dusting…so far. But no biggie. In the UP, the old rhyme is amended to, “May showers bring June flowers.”

  4. Bluebonnets are out here – and better than I expected. We’ll see if the fields fill up…

    And no pink sweater, smartass. Ronan is a dog of a certain gravitas; I would never offend his sensibilities with a pink sweater. Now a nice red and black houndstooth would be different.

  5. I think Ronan also needs one of those St. Bernard casks of brandy to lug around through all that snow. Ya never know when Slammy will get stuck in a snow storm and need to be saved.

  6. Yeah. That’s true. I thought of that, but I knew St. Bernards carry brandy. And if Slammy ever found himself in that situation, I don’t think he’d bitch too much. Hah.

  7. The way I see it, Mother Nature was napping on the job, and only just realized that she hadn’t given us our snow quota for the past two months, so she just went ahead and sent it all at once. 🙂
