|20 degrees and snow on the ground this morning. Springtime? April fools. A low of 18 is predicted for tonight.|
|The first flight of Romaine lettuce seeds.|
|I planted them in a clear, plastic clam-shell that a sub came in. It made me feel all virtuous and frugal.|
|I saw this item in the news and assume it is an April Fools article. Aren't noxious death-gasses enough?|
|I saw this graphic in a museum. The aqua with the small blue dots indicates the location of intermittent (vs continuous) permafrost. I was surprised to see a small patch of it in Quebec eighty miles north of Maine just south of the St Lawrence River|
Mrs ERJ got her second Moderna Covid shot today. Afterward we swung by Lowes since their website indicated they had one, upright Whirlpool freezer in stock. It took Shiela a solid 35 minutes to find the unit. The fact that it was not where it was supposed to be may have had something to do with it not already being sold. We are scheduled to have it delivered on April 12.
It is my non-professional judgement that Lowes is struggling with staffing. Unlike Menards, the employees at Lowes seem to be older. I speculate that many of them are MIA due to Covid. There were many customers milling around acting like they wanted to buy items but nobody to pick them from shelves. Or, it may have just been one of "those days".
A HUGE atta-girl to Shiela for sticking with the search to find the missing freezer.
