What do you mean "Spring Check"? With all of our piecing together every start-up is a "Spring Check". Laughing

Looking forward to doing a little tinkering over Spring Break. Been way too busy at school.

What is this...rain...you speak of? I have only heard of it in lore. Some say it is the tears of the god of sadness. Other say it is Ursa Major drooling. Please enlighten me.

Seriously we are dry, dry, dry around here. We are hoping to get set up for a wetter spring but it will take a couple of good years to break the dought.
