Out of the Blue

After a leap day delay, March is upon us. As the old saying I always invoke says, this month is supposed to come "in like a lion" in this area, but if that's the case, it's a declawed, damp lion as it's been warm and wet around here the past couple of days.

While the red dress seemed to make her considerably more attractive, it also, sadly, made her ten times more likely to die on away-missions.
Then, don't send her away?

My worry is that it'll be 100 starting in April straight through to October...

I'm thinking the same thing, except that I replace "worry" with "hope".

Hey Creston, I was looking at the Skyrim mod launcher in steam last night, and it looks like it now offers a load order (with up and down arrows). Think it was you who were looking for that?


Not really looking for one, but I did comment that WITHOUT one trying to run a large number of Mods would be futile. So at least they've taken that step to make it a bit more friendly.

Of course, it still doesn't address their rather crazy implementation of custom .bsa's and how the game loads them...

Thanks for the head sup, though.

Well Blue we have about ten inches of new snow here, and it's still snowing. The weekend, however, will be back in the 40s.

We pretty much always get 1 last snowfall - very short, very soggy but snow nonetheless - in the beginning of April. So I wouldn't start rejoicing for warm weather yet. I'm guessing food prices are going to jump this summer what with middle-eastern instability and lack of precipitation over this winter in most parts. Time to get the Victory Garden going!

I'm still expecting we're going to get hammered with one more snow before "winter" is over, despite the high being 78 here today. Weirdest winter here in a long time.

I would have liked something cold for about a week to kill off all the bugs. But this leads me to think that this is going to be a brutal summer.

Yeah, I'm worried about mosquitos and fleas this summer.

Yeh, here in NJ we've had very mild weather. It was rare to see my temps below 30 in the mornings... and usually around 40-50. I went without a jacket for most of the season so afternoons were probably often in the 50-60 range.

Meanwhile some past winters, the temps would be like 15, 10, etc on some mornings on the way to work... not EVERY morning but enough. And snow, forget about it. We had a couple minor snows by me (barely more than flurries) . I think we had maybe 2 or 3 that accumulated around an inch.



October/November made me think the winter was going to be Brutal. Since the end of October gave us a freak snow storm that blacked out a solid portion of the North East. Mother Earth is a tease.

Last time we had such a warm winter in the south east we also got a Blizzard in March, so you never know. Mother nature loves to troll
