    The weather is getting cold again, but hopefully it warms up soon. I am looking forward to finally being able to start working on the garden outside. There is a lot to do :)

      the fluctuating temperatures definitely don't help. But plants are shockingly resilient.

      I moved my outdoor plants from the garage to the porch and deck over the weekend.  The spikes and ivy have survived two winters in the garage and I'm hoping the freeze last night didn't do them in.

    Was just talking to a friend about this because I think it's really crazy. But there was once a 6th great lake! If I remember right from the documentary I watched, it dried up a long time ago and was located in Canada. It drained into Lake Superior. The reason we know it existed is because the soil composition of the area indicates there used to be a VERY large body of water located there. Actually, all the great lakes feed into each other and eventually to Nigra Falls and out into the ocean. It won't happen anytime soon, but eventually all the lakes will be dried up. Fun fact lol!

    I know it's already passed, but I just learned that Earth Day as its own theme song. It was made in 2013 by Abhay Kumar. It's called “Earth Anthem.” It's even recorded in every official language of the United Nations. The more you know.

      I found the song "Everyday is Earth Day", when I looked up the Earth Day Anthem.

    Fun fact for those working in person on main campus: if you drive a LEED efficient vehicle you can get a discounted rate on parking. Its a 20% discount and I highly recommend it. You can check out this link to see if you qualify.

    Anyone doing anything special for Earth Day? It's my dads birthday so I won't be doing anything specific tomorrow, but I am hoping to go to the park over the weekend. Maybe follow bud the trash stud's lead lol. He is a retired man in my hometown who goes around picking up trash all day. I swear he does more walking then any other person I've met.
