Been raining pretty heavily here ever since it stopped snowing. I'll take the rain, which has become common for May over the last couple of decades. Before then, things were drying up and turning brown by early June. Having a green prairie up into the summer has been pretty nice and worth the wet May... at least I think so. There are those who disagree with me most vehemently.
Believe it or not, but May ended up being colder than April in my part of the world. I'm staying up in the mountains this weekend. Thursday it was snowing heavily, then most of it disappeared. Tonight, I just had to go skiing(!) one last time before summer arrives here as well (presumably tomorrow, if the weather forecast is spot on).
Enjoy your skiing trip, Daimona. We had a beautiful day until this evening when clouds and wind started moving in. I didn't get my planting done AGAIN. Our gelding started to colic for the second time this month so I made a run for mineral oil and Bute. Twice in a month is worrisome. He won't drink enough water. The mare drinks two buckets in a night. Reb drinks maybe half a bucket. We're going to mix extra salt into his grain and cover the paste with syrup in order to make him thirstier. Dumb horse.
Summer is starting here too. Spring was cold enough they say our monsoon season will probably be delayed, usually it's August. In the meantime the temperatures are creeping up toward 100F. It's nice outside and cars are starting to turn into ovens when sitting in the sun so it's been pretty, well, nice. Oh, everything is flowering here too, so it's pretty and nice.
How did things turn out with your gelding Shanazel?
After an unusual cold summer, it has been unusual hot the last couple of weeks of July. This week temperatures have finally dropped to something more comfortable. I'm still struggeling to get the indoor temperature down since the heatwave, though. Most houses don't have AC, as it is rarely needed...
