The weather is sure spring-like out there. First snow, then some thawing, then we start all over again. I do like the gradual thaw as then we do not have as much all at once, which tends to lead to flooding. The only problem that I see is I never know how to dress because it could be cold in the morning and by afternoon be wonderfully warm. That is okay. Soon it will be warm all the time. I do not know if you saw the comet this past week. We went out and think we saw it. We really did not see a tail. It was hard to see as I could not hold the telescope steady enough to get a good look.
