You can tell from the date that even yesterday it was spring.

We had a blizzard.
It's funny how a few months changes your attitude about snow. Back in November if it snowed, I was excited because it meant Thanksgiving and Christmas were just around the corner and everybody was going to come home for the holidays. Yesterday, although we need the moisture, I was not happy to see those puffy white flakes come floating down. Driving down. Sideways.

By the time I came home from work (albeit 15 hours after I went TO work), it was all melted and was sunny and early spring chill again.

In piping news, I got a Ross cannister moisture control system last night. The pieces. Dennis explained how to install it, asked me if I wanted to leave my (McCallum) pipes with him (at his McMaster factory) and have him install it (Ha!) and then said if I had any problems, call him. I may just have to call him. This installation will involve sticking a small octopus inside a larger octopus, where neither octopus is willing and cooperative, using hose clamps and radiator tape and other such stuff. Do I get a nurse to assist me? I wish I could find somebody else who had a couple of hours to help.
Think I'll go check out Andrew Lenz's website, Bagpipe Journeys ( It always is plumb full of information. I'll let you know how it goes.
