Light rain began falling at mid-afternoon. We are forecast to have rain, off and on, into Friday. We could have a thunderstorm tomorrow or tomorrow night.

Our temps could be in the mid-60s around 2am tomorrow and by sunrise on Saturday, approx 29 hours later, our temps are forecast to be in the 20s. I'm guessing that it's early spring.

Old Fashioned

I enjoy this cocktail, but not many places around Toledo do it well. Currently, my favorite place for an Old Fashioned is Mancy's Italian restaurant. They also serve an excellent barrel-aged Manhattan that bartender JJ assembles.

The two Fox Sparrows foraged at the south end of the west spire bed. Ma and Pa Northern Cardinal foraged nearby.

Both Fox Sparrows are around again today, third day in a row. I'm assuming that it's the same two FOSP from Sunday. Fun birds to observe. A few juncos were around too.

The one Fox Sparrow continues to forage occasionally on the west spirea bed in our backyard. About 10 juncos have also been foraging on the backyard at times.
