I actually was hit by a duck once. We were hunting and ... well it was hit and flew right into the blind - and me!

Popdigr was deer hunting in his tree stand and had an owl fly up and punch him in the head, knocking his hat off. Owls curl up their talons and 'punch' sometimes, instead of grabbing and clawing.

He said it was quite a shot. Good thing it punched.

February 24th and 78 degrees F(25.6C) at my house. This summer should be interesting.

Yesterday afternoon, we hit a high of 90 degrees.

I was just noting this morning my personal evidence that we magically skipped winter: I run an event at the school that handles all the lost coats (of which there are so many, despite the fact that we hand-return any lost item that has a name in it.) The first year I ran the event, we had nine racks of unclaimed coats. Last year, there were six. This year, we currently have about three and a half, and unless some wacky cold front comes sweeping through in March, we're basically done for the year.

Are the kids blessed with more coats than they can keep track of, or parents wealthy enough to just get new ones rather than look for it?

I think a lot of it is over-involved parents insisting their kid wear a coat when the kid doesn't want to. Kid takes it off as soon as mom's car is gone, loses it because it's not attached to them anymore, and doesn't care enough to find it again. Parents are too lazy to come inside the building to check the lost and found for themselves, and eventually buy a new one.

Also, a lot of them are more like hoodies and cardigans than big expensive coats.

Heavy rain, thunderstorms, and flash floods hereabouts.

It's 38 degrees out today, overcast overcast. I have a day full of yard work, taking loads of branches to the dump. I'm inside now getting a warm up. Hands very cold.
