Thanks for posting that great tribute to one of the great President's of this great country. I heard this morning that this is the anniversary of Reagan's "Star Wars" program (I think they said unveiled in '83)

Have a great day---from the looks of the weather you should have gotten some moisture---I hope the radar was correct!

Turkey Track Bar, we did get about six inches of nice wet snow. It was timely and very welcome. There is a storm brewing for today, and I hope it is as "user friendly" as the last one; in other words, the less wind the better. Spring blizzards are good for the country, but the combination of snow and high winds can be deadly for livestock.
Another weather update - snowing (mostly sideways) and lots of wind. Not much snow on the ground and not too cold, at least not yet.

Good thing too, the wood stove is puffing smoke back into the house. Sent the hubby up on the roof to check the chimney and, after giving it a series of healthy clunks, it's starting to draw again.

Our granddaughter, who is home with the flu and coloring Easter decorations for Grandma, is laying in the middle of the livingroom floor singing "Up on the Housetop"!
