Ducks don't care.

January: Cold in Cambridge (but this is from early-Feb, since I don't have anything terribly good from January. The best I can offer is smoke on the water). February: early bees. March: Phoebe. Our cat. April: Petals on water. May: Humble bumbles. June: Stubai. The entire place is unbearably…
Peonies. Beautiful and ephemeral. Like the Mays, which is next week.
I had such fun watching the last three divisions today that I'm going to bore you with yet more rowing. First, here is Corpus M1 (hello Rob!) catching Christs M2 (note cox's hand half raised in the process of acknowledging the bump) to cement their place in division 2 and their hopes of blades…
The rowing one, that is. It was just like last year except wetter, and we were better, but our cox was less lovely. Oh, and as promised, this is the last of the random rowing-n-running types posts here. You need to go to the other blog for that from now on, except for important stuff like the…

We are at 61 degrees F (16C) here in Newport Oregon. Its sunny and no breeze. Almost a spring day. I hope you get to make a snowman.

Nice photos.

This evening in Calgary it's -1 at present, however that is not cold for this time of year. This winter has been mostly warmer than usual, with highs above 0 much of the time. It's also so dry there was a grass fire today in an open area.

Not that warm up north of you in Portland (11C) but it's sunny with one of our notorious east winds through the Columbia Gorge making us colder than the coast.

What on is going on with those two at the front? Secret mutual fumblings or Mr Uncertain-of-his-sexuality has a panic attack when knees collide?

Ducks in this Cambridge seem puzzled the Charles river has yet to freeze for the first time in decades.

Russell, the Charles did freeze (at least down near MIT) for 1-2 days in January.

-2C? A new Ice age is upon us!!!!!!!

No, wait, here in central Scotland it is above freezing and rather dull. No snow except on high ground. Give us our weather back you thieving southerners.

Nice looking ducks but I notice they are not in the water.

"Ducks don't care. I've never known what this means."

Ducks average very low on measures of socialization or empathy. A vast majority of ducks are narcissistic sociopaths. (c.f. Duckman, Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, etc.)
