Sunday

Snow, sleet and freezing rain thread. Still sick and it is loads of fun.

Friday

They will be back out there today working. If they do see the female up when the monitor is hooked in, they'll give us a report on how many eggs.

Kudos to Keith, John, and Mike for their perseverance on this problem. The t…
