Wednesday, March 31st

I actually saw a few snowflakes today. They just floated down out of nowhere. That lasted about 2 minutes on this very sunny day. Just as I predicted there was plenty of black ice on the roads this morning. Don't worry if you didn't see it today because it will be there again tomorrow since we will get down to 26 tonight. There was still plenty of snow to enjoy on the afternoon walk. That wind was so brisk we decided we needed to warm up. No better way to get toasty than by eating a bowl of gumbo. Yep, our walk ended at the Gumbo House. Greg had a bowl of Kitchen Sink gumbo. It was spicy and full of chicken, shrimp, and oysters. I had a bowl of red beans and rice. It was like eating a big serving of fire! We both had sweat beads on our foreheads after a few minutes. Spicy! We shared a blackened chicken po' boy sandwich. Yummmmm.

It was still light at 9 tonight. Unbelievable. As you can tell by the picture, the spring flowers are beginning to emerge. I am ready for it. I'm just not ready for the mosquitoes and bears that come out in the warm weather. Staying light all day and night will take some getting used to also. But I'm up for the challenge.
