  1. You had ice?

  2. We have mosquitoes already.
    A lot of guys whining about ticks.
    I’ve never seen a tick in Illinois, lots of garlic and cheap cigars make a decent repellant.

    Hopefully your guests won’t show up early to take advantage of this.

    • I got bit last evening, watching the ice.
      Our mosquitoes have ticks.
      Cigars and garlic repel all sorts of things!
      I have a video uploading, of my drive back up the hill this morning. I don’t think many of them will make it very far. Not for a while, anyway.

    Ice out seems magical. I was up at the house in New Hampshire during late winter a few years ago. In the course of a few hours one morning a small hole in the ice in our cove transformed itself into a hundred yards of open water.

    • The changes, from minute to minute, are subtle but it’s amazing how they add up. Got a cold wind whipping things to a crusty froth today, though.
