Is this April?

It was hot yesterday.  All over town, the birds were panting to keep cool.  This is an unusual sight here in Gloucester, especially in April.  I’ve only seen it hit 90F in New England in April once before in my life.  It was when I was in the 8th grade.

Hi Steve,

It was hot up here in N.H. also. The beaches were packed. What a beautiful day.

All the places are attractive, graceful, astonishing and enticing and the visitor can wander and indulged in the beauty of this place for sure.

Moreover, you must visit Virginia, The Shenandoah Valley where you must see the very marvelous destination to visit Woodruff Inns Resorts. It is the best place to spend your vacations, honey moons and special holidays.

...91 in early April--craziness!

It was pretty warm, wasn't it!

I drove down to Joppa Flats yesterday and saw an Eagle! It was just sitting there for a long time, then finally flew over to the other side of the water. There were LOTS of people out birding! Plum Island was packed so I turned around and headed back towards home.

It was a little warm for sleeping last night. 90 degrees in April is definitely unusual!

Wow Steve! That is kind of a treat but maybe a little too much of one!

Hey, that's warm but will it last!

91! Come on! I'd take that over the 45 degrees and 34 mph winds we have here (and the rain). Love the bird shots though they do look a little warm, that's for sure!
