I went running, with the dogs, up “Prospect Mountain Road” (as is my wont) this morning. It was 47°F. Wow. It was like Spring and yes, the road was muddy as it could be. The dogs came back soaked and muddy.
Lot of warm rain yesterday too. Yes going forward only next Wednesday will see highs above freezing BUT the damage has been done. Biggest factor now is that the Sun is higher in the sky and we have more daylight. That makes a big difference.
Though I could (of course) be wrong, and I appreciate that a lot of people would hope I am wrong, I think this will be the 4th year, since they started maintaining records around 170 years ago, that we at Lake Winnipesaukee will not get a complete ice-in.
So the 4 non-ice in years have been: 1998-1999, 2000-2001, 2013-2014 & 2015-2016. So all 4 have occurred within the last 18 years — and I have been up here, in and around the Lake to see all 4. NO I do not see this as proof of Global Warming. Last winter was COLD enough to dispel that.
I will, of course, keep you posted. I need to get out and get some pictures of the Lake.

This happened to pop-up on my Facebook ‘page’ since I do follow ‘BuyDig.com‘ — my preferred source for cameras (of late), primarily because I like the ‘style’ (and, to be honest, the name) of their Super Salesman(-in-Charge), Ray Messiah.
I could immediately see the potential. I love breakfast sandwiches though I can no longer indulge in carbs whether it be a muffin, biscuit or bagel. So this sandwich maker per se will not really be that useful for I. When I go to McDonald’s (which is quite often) I now invariably get at least two breakfast sandwiches for myself — especially now that some of the sandwiches are available all day. I, however, take both slices of ‘bread’, irrespective of what it is, and just eat the inside. THEN I wrap the ‘bread’ in the original wrapper and bring it home for the dogs. That I get two helps. One each. They know. They sit and wait expectantly — but don’t get too agitated because they know there is one for each.
Anywho … I thought some of you may find this sandwich maker of use. Enjoy.
