Sorry to not keep y'all up to date but great advances have been made on the home front and the weather in NoVa (Spanish for "it doesn't go") has flipped brutal in the last two days. Way too hot way too quick. We are expecting rain shortly which is the leading edge of a front coming through which will cool us down considerable and, speaking for the grossly overweight, we need that.
No cherry blossoms in front of the domicile yet. Pics will be posted when the profusion of pink masses its force in front.
