Welcome to May everyone!
Yep, woke up this morning to snow. Maybe a quarter of an inch.

Ours is heavy rain for today through Sunday with more severe weather coming in Tuesday, but at least it’s warm.
DH went to the hardware store this morning and his friend he went to high school with owns the store, so he gave as a discount on fencing for the chicken shed.
Need a few more posts, studs and siding for the chicken pen and it’s hard to stay on a set budget with building supplies being so expensive.
DH is trying to fix the weather radio after storms hit Thursday night and I think that lighting fried the radio, never seen lighting and storms that were that intense and pray we can get a break from all this bad weather.
They are stating more price increases on groceries and shortages of chicken and gasoline here over the next few months, so have you’ll heard any statements about price increases or shortages.
Crow Bar enjoy that snow and maybe save some to send us around August and September when heat and humidity gets unbearable here in Texas.

Well, it warmed up by mid day, so most of the snow was gone by then.
We got more rain in the forecast for the next few days. Warmer too.
Yeah seeing more and more about food inflation in different areas. Got a article to post now.

Gasoline prices here have dropped. Thinning shelves with bottled water and rice.

Last week when I went out for food only to find everything that needed freezing or refrigeration was thrown out by the store and today at Walmart it was the same, so no shopping for food today. These storms are playing havoc on the electric here in our small town and causing so much food loss in the stores.
I was checking out the few items I purchased at Walmart today and the checker told me about antibacterial wet wipes that were marked down to ten cents a package, so I got two dozen packages.
DH & I decided we are going to use an ice cooler for keeping food instead of moving one refrigerator and freezer until that house is cleaned and bug free, grocery stores are only minutes away so I think we will be ok for a bit.

That was interesting.

Yes, an interesting read. I do like the suggestion of asking someone who agrees with you how to get ahold of them and quietly, steadily building a group that is of the same mind.
I haven’t gotten the vaccine and don’t intend to, but my employer will put the pressure on. Those that get the vaccine receive $250 into their health accounts, receive a lanyard that says “I’m vaccinated” which is worn all the time. Those who aren’t vaccinated must continue to wear masks at all times, inside and out, and submit to serial COVID testing. I feel like I’ll be wearing a blue star on my sleeve.

Tried to start the riding lawn mower the other day.
Even with a jump, it would not catch.
We bought it used, so it was already 5 years old, and we put another 6 years on it.
We debated about taking it in to see if it could be fixed.
But as we talked about it, get another year out of the old mower, what would next year look like? Both in terms of price and availability? Watching the price of dang near everything going up, some things going scarce, as much as I did not really want to do it, I think it was prudent to get a new mower.
So we did.
