We had some pretty heavy rain and storms and wind Thursday night and early Friday morning. It's much more calmer now.

NASCAR screwed up!

For the first time in more than 50 years they decided to race on a dirt track. Truck loads of dirt were brought into the famous 1/2 mile oval at Bristol. 36 degrees of banking on the concrete track, it's like racing jet fighters in a gymnasium.

Well, I've been following the action. When the track is dry, there is so much dust in the air you can barely see the cars.  When the track is too wet, the drivers can't see and the mud hampers the cooling of the engines.


NASCAR is taking steps to attract new fans and keep loyal fans from leaving.  7 road course races versus only 2 in recent years. COTA in Austin, Road America in Elkhart Lake Wisconsin.  My dad raced there back in the 60s. I've been there to watch Xfinity races.

They've postponed both the Cup and Truck races due to rain and flooding, and Tony Stewart isn't happy as he wanted the Cup to race on the dirt track he owns in Ohio, Eldora.

The race was pretty good, though there were a lot of cautions. Definitely agree that it was hard to see the cars at times.

The weather has a winter feel today, a high only in the 30s. Windy!

It's beginning to get pretty warm here, but we're going to have one more cool snap in a couple of days.

Going down into the 40's on Friday morning.

A little cool snap the next few days, but it may reach 70 on Easter and highs in the 70's next week.

Some nice thunderstorms came through last night.  Just a steady rain right now. I'm glad Spring is here.

Nasty day here today.

Dark and cloudy with constant rain coming down.

Hopefully the rain will be over by around 3:00 pm like the weatherman said.

Guess we'll see.

It would be nice to get outside a little today. Stern Smile
