March 31, 2016 Morning

Good morning! Happy Thursday. 50 degrees this morning and the birds are chirping outside. A lot of clouds but the sun is peaking through in parts. Could be nicer but at least it’s warn.

Today is definitely going to be a nice one assuming that the clouds don’t last all day. Partly sunny conditions, at least for the first half of the day and a high around 70. Breezy though. South wind 15 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. On the whole, bad for day for the last day of March. Sunset at 7:23 pm. Rain showers come in around 11 pm but mild conditions and a low of only 60 degrees. You’ll be able to leave your windows open and enjoy the fresh air tonight.

Tomorrow starts April. The creeks are stocked and trout season starts tomorrow. April is when it finally starts to get really spring like and when things green up. Looking forward to going on my April road trip.

Today in 1933, the Civilian Conservation Corps is established by President Franklin Roosevelt with the mission of relieving rampant unemployment and restoration of natural resources that had been damaged by poor agricultural, timber, and industrial practices. The CCC was a priority of Franklin Roosevelt who had a passion for scientific forestry and conserving our natural resources for all to utilize.

Also today in 1998, Netscape released Mozilla source code under an open source license. This set off a revolution in web browsers, eventually leading to open source and closed source browsers like Google Chrome and many embedded browsers on our mobile phones.

Happy Birthday to Al Gore. Today most remembered for his climate change activism, but he also was the unsuccessful Democratic candidate for president in 2000 and Bill Clinton vice-president. It seems likely that God will be on his side eventually for his climate activism, but unfortunately for the future of our world, he has been largely unsuccessful despite all his efforts to raise attention on the issue.

Enjoy this beautiful day at least before the clouds take over.
