One more sure sign of spring...

The severe thunderstorms this morning (another sign of spring) gave way to overcast skies and 70 degree temperatures (more t-storms, flooding, etc on the way for tonight). I didn't think we'd be able to make it out to the school to run the dogs, but when I got home tonight the radar looked pretty clean. It was 71 degrees when I left, so I knew that it'd have to be a light evening for Teller who is still adjusting to springtime temperatures.

Video Still
I drive up to the school and was surprised to see a lot of cars in the parking lot - then I got it! The Essex Rec. department is in FULL SWING now! There were about 30 SCREAMING pee-wee soccer kids on the lower field and an equal number of 10-12 year old little leaguers in the upper field.  Not a particularly good environment for Murphy (kids STILL send him over the top sometimes - particularly screaming fast ones) so he had to sit out tonight's romp - but it was a great opportunity to work Teller on a bit of obedience work and keep the retrieve session pretty light.

I grabbed the ol' iPhone and shot some video (complete with appropriate springtime soundtrack).
