Cold. Apparently cold enough to bust a water pipe in the shed a t LML. So if you have a "vacation home" here and have not checked lately, you might want to. FYI. Pipe at lake will be repaired and INSULATED.
Also, the last of the bark beetle damaged trees have been cut at LML, leaving the kids play area rather shadeless. So, hopefully new trees, not succeptable to bark beetles, will be planted. They probably won't provide shade in my lifetime, but as Warren Buffet said, "someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago." Nice to know that action taken today bears fruit (no pun intended) for many a future day. I'm pushing for fruit trees. Feed the birds, feed the kids. Apples and cherries do very well in my yard.
