It is a lovely Spring day here on March 25, 2015. The sun is shining brightly, the temp is at 64 degrees hear only the rolling Flat Creek.
This morning as Madge and me were eating breakfast I was looking out the patio door watching a couple of geese down on the creek swimming, frolicking around, and enjoying the morning coolness. I told Madge, “It is pretty neat to be able to sit at the table watching wildlife at play” or something like that.
It is. It really is neat to watch God’s creation through our door, and it is even better to get out in it when we can.
I do enjoy Spring. I can practically hear the grass growing :). It is grand.

I am not a fan of prognostications; especially early ones. A farmer cannot make a decision to not plow the ground because it looks like it might rain; or even if the weather people have predicted that it is going to rain. The field would never get plowed.
What set this off I guess is because our School for which I drive a School bus, cancelled school today with only rain falling; upon the prediction of ice and snow on the way.
I know it is a safety issue. We do not want to get caught on the road with hundreds of children on the school bus, with a possibility of sliding into the ditch or another vehicle.
I will applaud their decision when the ice and snow, or snow and ice come. I just do not like making decisions like this based on the predictions of faulty people, and their man made equipment.
It was probably a good decision, but that is yet to be seen. From the banks of Flat Creek.
