Warm fog here in St.John's. This means that icebergs are near in that the cold ocean and the warm land are bringing about a unique springtime fog.

Wow... woke up to big thunderstorms this morning. Then looked outside and was getting the largest hail I've ever seen with my own eyes. About 3-4 cm in size. Didn't have the the digital camera but took pictures with the film camera. When I get developed, I'll scan and post them.
Really cool to watch actually. [img]smile.gif[/img]
We had a nice weekend with highs around +14. Dried the lawn enough to do some de-thatching. Saw my first robin this morning. the boids is choipin'. A real good sign. I sure hope they don't freeze tonight.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
Not a very nice evening last night. Very high winds, sustained at 80 kph, gusting to well over 100 kph.
At 8:00 or so, I had to go out and try to close our front gate which had blown open. It is made of cedar, vertical boards, 6 inches wide and spaced 3/4" apart. The wind had actually "blown the boards off the frame".
Four inch long spikes pulled right out of the frame. It also ripped the metal latch right out of the side of the stucco house that was screwed in with plastic inserts.
I finally gave up and simply dragged over have a dozen large planters filled with topsoil to place against the gate to hold the frame shut until I can go our and repair it.
This morning the winds continue to howl, so it may be some time until I can get it fixed.
