The mice and their best-laid plans have scurried back to hide in their cozy burrows. Why?
- Weather forecast, already at my limits, has taken a further downward turn -- the rain is now forecast to be snow.
- The Rebel Alliance is beating the war drums again, calling us to suit up and sharpen our virtual pens. This is a final push to stop #RyanDoesNotCare before it even gets to the Senate. Given the latest OMG's from the White House regarding powerful German women and out-of=the-closet Austrian Nazis, I feel obliged to some more nonviolent advocacy. Especially since my district reelected a fencesitter Republican to represent us in Congress.
- I volunteered to bring a kale salad for the trail repair crew weekend.
- I have a sinus headache.
- I don't feel like it.
Another day. Next planned trip starts April 3.
