Spring in February?

Yes, last week in February and we are wet here. More rain in the past two months than ever before - similar to LA, but not quite as much. LA has what, over 38 inches? And we've got around 6. But it's wet. At least today was nice and sunny, due for a few more showers tomorrow, but nice over the weekend, and another storm system in on Monday.
Here are two shots of my drive in that I retook - again, not too good that early, or from a moving car, but it still looks nice.

That's the back of New York New York, with the Monte Carlo to the left. You can see the strip of the NY roller coaster at about mid level of the Empire State Building.. You board the roller coaster from an El platform right over a Greenwich Village street inside, and roll on to the outside, up and over along the side, back, and front and then back inside. I've not been on it yet. If you watch the original CSI you used to see Grissom riding roller coasters several times. We've got quite a few - from the one on top of the Stratosphere, 1100 feet above the strip, down to a hugh one at Primm, south fifteen miles on the California border. Probably six or eight, all tied to casinos.
And across Tropicana is the Excalibur. From some angles it just looks like a white wall, but in the middle is the castle. There are two angled walls forming a square, with narrow openings on either side. Through the openings you can see the castle, over the parking garage here in back. The other opening diagonally across is on the corner of Tropicana and the Strip.

And for those of you with snow and cold weather, I said I would give the promise of Spring.
Here's our back yard peach tree in the sunshine last weekend.

And underneath it is our version of snow. But fragrant and warm.

Well, not too warm - only around 60f in the afternoon, cools of to the high 40s at night. We're turning over the planting beds, putting in some veggie seeds. The California poppy seeds we planted last fall are up and close to blooming. Most of the trees are starting to green up. Hope we don't get a freeze to stunt all the growth.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also [url=]Viagra Sales Market[/url] you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=]Viagra and Analogs[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
