You must be East of here (the Dakotas). We had snow Sunday night, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. But I'm happy to tell you the SUN is out today!!! And it's supposed to warm up to the 50's by tomorrow!!

 

So hang on, it's coming. (<- Hopeful words from the Land of Eternal Winter.)

We're west of you ... and north - Alberta.

 

It did not snow today. Not once!!! Yeah!

When I put out all the patio furniture this weekend I had no idea there would be snow on the ground this morning.  I guess it will be May before I can go to a Nursery and get flowers.  I love the first snow of the season but am ready to kill with this (hopefully) last snow.

Last night it was about 34 out while we stood out at 1 in the morning and watched the lunar eclipse peak. We live in a dessert, so spring means that nights are still positively frigid. Two nights ago while we were up late playing games together we suddenly heard a pattering on the window, which was weird because we're in the basement. That pattering suddenly was pounding with howling wind. We had to run out to rescue our newly planted seeds from a horrid hail storm at nearly 2 in the morning. The wind was so bad that I had to lean all my weight into the door over the knob to get it to close. 

 

Hopefully spring is going to get around to sticking around for everyone soon. The bright side here is that at least the fruit trees still seem to have all (or at least most) of their buds. Last year most were lost in a really awful late frost and it was really bad for the orchard owners. Looks like they escaped a tragedy a second year in a row.

We had a really nasty hail storm on Saturday.  My brother still doesn't have power back yet.  Then we were hit with high winds and I lost power for a day.  Today we have about 3 inches and off and on snow showers.

 

(I think I have run out of cuss words at this point!)

We had 85 here yesterday and freezing with a possibility of flakiness here (DC) this morning.   At least it is warming up again today.  Cherry blossoms are flying all over the place, landing in the back yard etc.

 

Here's a link for an idea on coloring Easter eggs with herb leaves.  And it's on a chicken site for the chicken lovers out there.

It's been snowing off and on this past week but it stopped snowing two days ago so my boys were able to do their Easter egg hunt outside. It got up to about 12C today... not bad.  Our snowman is standing on just grass now.  LOL

 

We have crocuses blooming now, and tulips are poking their heads out of the ground... spring will come one day. Hopefully.

It's been snowing for 24 hours now.... If it hadn't been 20C recently (just two freaking days ago) the accumulation would have been well over 8 inches, but as it was we still have 4-6 inches of snow... and we still had to shovel our driveway.

 

I am so ready for spring! The trees are finally starting to bud, well some of them are anyways.  LOL

 

Hopefully it will have melted before my kids play soccer on Tuesday.  :rolleyes:

I actually got a sunburn today, well wind/sun burn, being out in the warm, very windy day for four hours.

It's mild, but it's there! Sorry it's still snowing up in Canoehead Land. :rolleyes:  Heeheehee..... I think maybe

we should decide as a race, to stop living in places that don't make sense. Like, California. And New

Orleans. And the South Pole.

No snow here, 70's and 80's lately.   Here's a sign of spring for sure.  Boids at the feeder web cam.  Don't forget to enable the sound on the lower left side of video screen.

    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Hi everybody, I'm a 20 year old male, diagnosed with Celiac in February via biopsy, after suffering with progressively worsening symptoms for around a year. I had the blood test for Celiac in June 2015, which came back negative. My main issue pre-diagnosis was a feeling of uncomfortable fullness after eating small amounts which became more and more severe to the point where I was hospitalised in January with malnutrition and severe weight loss. I was placed on a NG feeding tube whilst in hospital as I was struggling to eat at all by this point (even a bowl of cereal led to hours of discomfort - the only comparison I can use to describe the feeling was as if there was a brick sitting in my stomach after eating). An endoscopy I had whilst in hospital showed I had Celiac (flattened villi with inflammation) and follow-up gene test was positive. After a couple of months at home on the NG tube, I found I was able to eat small amounts of food again with some symptoms but not of the severity I was experiencing previously. It seemed as if the time spent on the tube in addition to the gluten-free diet had allowed some healing to take place. I was able to eat enough to maintain my weight and came off the tube completely. My symptoms are similar now to when I came off the tube about 6 weeks ago, but I can cope with it for the moment until it heals fully. It has been a very difficult year but I'm pleased to see some progress now. Currently, however, I am having problems tolerating food in the morning. I had been having Tesco gluten-free cornflakes with milk for breakfast and finding that OK, however I think the recipe may have been changed as the texture/taste became more coarse and I suddenly noticed the symptoms were considerably worse after eating them and upset my stomach for the rest of the day. I tried gluten-free rice krispies and milk, again without success. I am not lactose intolerant as milk and cheese don't cause problems for me and milk actually seems to settle my stomach in the morning, as when I tried toast on its own, it was much worse than milk and cereal. Has anyone had similar issues early in the day or got any tips or advice for what to eat/drink with Celiac/intestinal inflammation in the morning? Thank you for your help. 
    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      Several conditions other than Celiac, can elevate ttg readings including autoimmune diseases, a parasitic disease/infection etc. Also for some patients the ttg can be a false positive. Which is why I think its helpful to have the full panel, to make an interpretation.  Your GI/Gut specialistic can run the full panel on the NHS.  Which is what they did for me before the biopsy.   
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Several conditions can cause increased lymphocytes in the duodenum including Celiac.  The blood test will help confirm /rule out Celiac. If your villi is normal along with negative celiac blood test, then this would make celiac unlikely. Do you know which blood test has been requested now and two years ago?  Its possible that something could have been missed if the full celiac blood panel was not run.

    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Hello... 3 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Celiac. Looking at the various flours used to replace traditional flour is a bit overwhelming. I have a Retsel grain mill and I'm considering milling my own gluten-free flour. I have a few questions. First and foremost, would it be cost effective? Obviously, buying flour already processed is more convenient but terribly expensive. Does anyone here have experience with how accessible the ingredients are to do the milling yourself? Rice is readily accessible as well as many varieties of beans. What about milling coconut flour and some of the more exotic flours? Secondly, I'm wondering if milling at home will produce a fine enough product to be comparable to what can be purchased in store. Any experiences or suggestions would be appreciated.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
