Well as usual it was 70 degrees yesterday and it's now 30 degrees and it snowed today :-( Normally put "the house" up April 15th. Keep your fingers crossed!

ASOP - it's so miserable - I hope all the martins that have gotten up here are able to hang on for the next 2 days! Poor things. :(

I had one martin spend the night in my housing Tuesday night. I haven't seen any since. Just as well with the cold.

Yah - I think we'll be out of the deep freeze and the snow and sleet once we get to Monday - next week is supposed to be in the 50s again. Good luck! I haven't seen a martin yet this year.

Been trying for three years and no luck, just lookers. Live about 2 miles from Mississippi River which you think would help.

Is the Mississippi still flooded where you are? Good luck - I hope the 3rd time is the charm for you.
