For just the past three weeks or so we've been watching the construction begin across the golf course. They are building a new dead-end single street with houses on each side, reaching almost all the way into and across the north end of the golf course. The owner has said that he wishes to keep the course running, and doesn't think this will interfere, but after they've re-arranged 3 or 4 holes to fit we're not sure. It will be a very crowded course at that end for the golfers. The houses you see are the one-floor bungalows they've already built on the former practice fairway.
Meanwhile the big melt has started here. Early this morning it was =8°C; now it's +8°C (46°F).
