    No ticks here, but I've killed 2 wasps in the house and stepped on at least a dozen outside in the last 72 hours. I don't think the hard freeze affected insects in the least !!

    Heard them here in TN last week. They're active on my ponds and can overpower the radio when driving by certain ditches, lol.

    Ran a hunt test this weekend with my retriever club - one flight had to be paused in order to deal with a cottonmouth.

    Wus Winters. I’ve said it time and time again. For several years now, even our “bad” winters have been maybe 2 weeks of winter weather. Sure we get more than the southern states but we just don’t have bad winters. We’ve had earth worms crawl all over my back patio and sidewalks/driveway. I haven’t been to my hunting ground yet but I’d bet the turkeys are on fire.

    We continue to have flooding around here with crest expected on Friday around 8' over, exactly as last year, giving me an idea of where all overflow will potentially reach, being that it lasted forever last year due to continual rains. The good thing is that my locale is expected to remain dry for the next six days, and its sunny with a high of around 64°F forecast for later today, giving Tillville a chance to become less moist. I personally consider anything below 80°F to be arctic temperature and am currently freezing with the door ajar, but at least it's slowly becoming warmer. We are to hit lows of the freezing mark later within the week.

    Worms in my driveway yesterday
     
  10. Yeah I weeded out part of my big raised bed yesterday afternoon and it was full of earthworms. I guess they just dive to the 50s degree zone and hang out when it gets cold lol.

    I moved some dirt yesterday that did have a lot of worms in it. That is until the girls came through and ate them all.

    I simply did a half walk upon the highland yesterday afternoon. Ground still moves and moves beneath my feet in many places.


    Quite a few limbs much longer than myself to be pulled up the hill and into Pyroville for some fun, along with many others once it dries out some more. Have made mental note to have Mr. 40 Acre Pond finally swing by with a bucket truck and a few men very soon, so that cavities do not develop from all and deadwood anything else while up there. Leaves galore will remain a while longer to do their job.

    The mega birds around here did not waste time taking care of anything crawling; I saw nothing but wasn't looking for such, either. Noticed my daffodils within Bunnyville have already formed many buds and are up around 6" max, while the naked lady lilies had already shot up to around 3-4" max and my beautiful rhododendron has tons of formed buds and a few azaleas do, as well. A few more hollyhocks have sprung up, as well. Might prune the blackberry jungle later this week. Didn't hangout there too long due to a slight wind having made it nippy yesterday.

    Will likely clean the bluebird boxes later today and begin regularly monitoring them once again. I checked one yesterday and it looked to have possibly had new nesting material added, but I could not lift the door all the way for having added a thick reducer, after finding one of my dead males in there during the snowstorm. Will have to engineer something else for it.

    There is a black topped side road that lays beside 45 acres I own and when heavy warm rain hits , It looks like straw laying all over the road. They are night crawlers laying everywhere. They are hard to pick up off the blacktop but I have a broom and one of those dust pans on a handle . I just walk down and sweep them up . I use any kind of light because they can not get away.
    I am glad there is not hardly any traffic on this road to run over and squish them.

    The boys went out sunday night and caught a butter bowl full of crawlers to feed their pet snappin turtles. Said it looked like their was thousands out there.
