Rocky Mountain May: Snow and All PDF Print E-mail

It's May 13 and snowing - just a bit - on the tulips and daffodils.  Our traditional last day of frost here at 6,000 feet elevation is May 15 but how literal can you get?

Ok.  Now it is snowing pretty heavily.  I keep telling myself: White rain.  Just think of it as white rain.

When you calculate such things around here, you are supposed to add a day of possible frost for every 100 feet of elevation above 6,000 feet.  Usually I can skate through with the May 15 estimate but this year it just might go all the way to May 22!  My potted geraniums are waiting in the garage until it is safe but I have pinks that I must plant in the next couple of days. I sowed some new wild flower seeds last week and planted more Columbine. They are hardier than I am.

There is a lot going on.  We haven't heard any more about how Fr. Mike's parents are doing yet but many thanks for your prayers for his family!  As soon as we know more, we'll post it.

We are in the last throes of getting ready for Making Disciples which starts in Boise on Monday.  We have 49 participants: from all over Idaho, Oregon, Alaska, Minnesota, Halifax, and Texas.  It should be a great gathering although Keith Strohm and I may be the team by ourselves since it is possible that Fr. Mike won't be able to make it.

But I have a few things I want to blog and will try to get those up today.

Update:

I just talked to Fr. Mike and he said that his dad is doing reasonably well, having had two new stents put in and is due to be discharged from the hospital in a day or so.  The issue before them is whether his dad should go to a nursing home for a few days to aid in his recovery or straight home.

Fr. Mike's mom, Melba, is having ups and downs but this morning was up and having breakfast with the other residents when he arrived.  So her condition is unclear and changes rapidly.

They are most grateful for your prayers.  It is unclear whether or not Fr. Mike will be able to make it to Boise.  We'll see.  We have plan A, plan B, and the Holy Spirit!

When the Canadian government established a series of entomological laboratories during the 1910s, crop protection was a domain where provincial governments were already busy providing technical support to local agricultural associations. The establishment of regional laboratories resulted from the adoption of the Destructive Insect and Pest Act in 1910, legislation that portrayed insect outbreaks as an interprovincial or an international problem under federal jurisdiction. The natural order conceptualized by federal scientists and legalized by the Canadian Parliament initiated a process of centralization. As the knowledge produced by the federal scientists reinforced representation of natural phenomena that legitimated their involvement across the national territory, the federal government concurrently achieved a political order by which it exerted its power over both nature and nation.
