 Yesterday, Wednesday, March 11, 2015, for the FIRST TIME this year, I was able to go for my morning run, with the dogs, without wearing a jacket.

I ran in just a sweatshirt over an old short sleeve golf shirt. That is my Spring and Fall running attire. As soon as it is warm enough I run topless and do so well into September.

Thinking back this might be the EARLIEST that I have run, in New Hampshire, without a jacket. It is crazy. We still have a ton of snow and just the volume of snow on the ground should produce a chill. But, it was beautiful. Not cold in the slightest. It hit 50°F in the afternoon. This is where it gets wild. It was pretty cold Saturday and Sunday. I know. On Saturday I walked 75 minutes across the BIG Lake. That what is so amazing. There was no transition. Bang. Straight from a very snowy, very cold winter straight into Spring in one day! But to be fair this has been happening more and more in New Hampshire of late. Spring with a BANG. Not complaining. It is nice.

The snow is melting at a rate. Maybe a tad too fast. I still spent 30 minutes, after my run, shoveling piles of snow from outside the ‘unused’ garage door (i.e., where the MGB is parked).

Flooding, basement flooding, can be a major reality this year.

And yes, we will still have SOME piles of snow in June, in shaded areas where plows piled up the snow. That is not unusual either. I remember seeing snow in June.

The Augusta, ME band is led by Gerald Brann, whose portrayal of Elton John has won him rave reviews. FACE Magazine wrote “When Brann is in costume and on stage, he is Elton John.” The Sun Chronicle says “Nobody does Elton John better than Elton John, but Gerald Brann comes close!”

The rest of the band includes Doug Stackhouse, originally from Carlisle, England, Mike Tobias who has been playing in bands for well over 25 years, Mark Kavanaugh – a professor of Psychology and an extraordinary bass player, and drummer Kevin Ostrowski who has been performing for over 20 years and since 1994, continues to perform with the classic rock band Sun Dog.

Their performance is a full concert tribute, complete with an incredible light show and sound system. Every detail of an actual Elton John concert is presented in such a way that will have Elton John fans screaming for more!
