Nice Day in Empire

Today is why folks from up north are moving to the south in droves. Last night's high winds, deafening thunder, and searing lightning moved off to the east and what was left was a picture perfect day.
I watched the weather last night and the folks up around Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Chicago were getting mountains of ice and snow....our thermometer was hovering at sixty five degrees.
This morning we watched the birds have a little feeding orgy as we drank coffee. We went for a long walk and the dogs ran wild like a bunch of kids on spring break. We had lunch with Jilda's sister and afterwards came home and took a long nap.
I got up while the sun was still warm and washed about three months of grime off our cars. It looks like we upgraded vehicles.
Our Buttercups and Yellow-bells are blooming and the other spring flowers are poking out to get a feel for the weather.
I saw a funny joke about places to retire. The one about the deep south made me laugh out loud because of how true they are:

You can Live in the Deep South where...
1. You can rent a movie and buy bait in the same store.
2. "y'all" is singular and "all y'all" is plural.
3. "He needed killin' " is a valid defense.

But the south is changing in a lot of ways and I plan to write about my views on that but since Jilda is calling me for dinner, I'm signing off for now.
