    I swear I am going to move south with all this weather. The weekend before last we had a nice 60 degree weekend, then last weekend we had snow and it stuck, It snowed all night, and now there is blowing snow. I dont think I have ever seen snow in late April before, it seems like it will be winter forever.

    Don't say that! If NY hears you it will want to catch up with the other states and dump another foot on us! We just had our first 70 degree day too.....

    no kidding, I've been scrambling trying to build my coop between weather.. and man.. it's taking for ever. I've been working on it for four days now. Today was lots of fun putting tar paper on the roof in 30 degree weather and snow/rain/sleet falling on me. Dang near froze my tookus off. Grrr... Hopefully it's clear enough tomorrow I can finish the roof. Then it's just trim, door, paint and away we go. (at last! <- my wife added that) lol she'd like to get her garage back.

    Just don't send it our way!! [​IMG] We've had 60-70 degree weather since last week! I am a bit worried though since Calgary got lots of snow again and they were wearing shorts last week [​IMG], I really hope it doesn't come our way.

    There is a Deer Park, Texas; it's a suburb of Houston. It's where Shell Oil has one of its biggest refineries.

    It's also where the battle of San Jacinto was fought and Santa Anna (the president of Mexico) was captured winning Texas independence from Mexico. The Republic of Texas then became a sovereign country and Sam Houston was our president. That’s before Texas joined the Union of course.

    I live about 75 miles from there and we always enjoyed going to the San Jacinto monument on field trips as kids. They have a reenactment of the battle of San Jacinto every summer; we always used to take the kids when they were little, it’s fascinating to watch.
