Cold rain and snow? Here comes sunshine?

What's Mother Nature up to at your house?

well folks

I love the rain and will take it any time...except during a show. Question is, how well did the Furthur show at Shoreline go last night? Anybody there?

I'm supposed to go to the show tonight, which is why I'm asking. I don't suppose there is any chance of cancellation?

well folks

it is pouring in the Bay Area, which pretty much exceeds one's reasonable sense of humor on the subject... C'mon, it's JUNE!!

my vet

is super conscientious about foxtails because he had a dog DIE from an unsuspected one that worked its way into the dog's brain.

My Callie in her younger days celebrated each spring by inhaling a foxtail. Now that she's old I'm really hoping to avoid it. I'm also hoping Cash avoids her snorking ways. It's tough though; right now our neighborhood is full of the darn things.

Damn foxtails

I had to take my dog to the vet last year to pull out a handful of those damn things from her paws. The wounds got infected and the whole bit...

Minefields

Marye, your description doesn't evoke the mental picture that I usually get when I see the words "dog" and "minefield" used in the same sentence. Especially my dogs in relation to the minefield that they create in my back yard...actually, THEIR back yard.

80s yesterday in NC, a front came through and now we're in the 60s and sunny. Better than those tornado weather patterns of the past couple of weeks.

yeah...

it's pretty darn nice here in Oakland too. The only thing I can find to complain about is that it's brought out the foxtails, which is a bummer from the dogs' point of view, because it's making a lot of their favorite spots a real minefield for the next few months.

(Foxtails, for those not familiar with the grasses for which we can apparently blame the conquistadors, are spiky, barbed grass awns programmed by evolution to work their way up every canine orifice that presents itself, and create a few new ones, to the tune of much anguish and $$$. Wheat, basically, though oats are no treat in this regard either.)

Okay...

it's spring already. What is up with this wintry blast?

Still, it's so nice to have the days longer and the sun shining, I'm not complaining that much. But a friend of mine was just reporting slushy hail in Santa Cruz.
