Farm Life: Who Stole My Spring?

P1040234This has been an odd winter.  We had 70F to 60F temperatures through Thanksgiving and Christmas.  The almanack had predicted several major snow storms by then.  Just a regular roll of rain storms every few days.  Then January hit us with nearly three feet of snow in 36 hours.  Then February brought ice storms.  Then March had us back up into the 70F to 80F (hey, that’s MARCH).  Yesterday, we hauled out the tomato cages, soaker hoses, and pained pathways for the garden.  This morning, an inch of snow covers the mountains.  Long-Johns or T-Shirts?  Guess, I’ll vacuum the floors and catch up on ironing, next to the wood stove, for now.

Up here in the mountains, we have a saying, "You can't get there from here", which really means "We wouldn't go the trouble to do that". Another concept is that "If you don't know, we ain't telling." For the rest, you'll have to read between the lines.

    Hasn’t it been just so weird?! We haven’t had much snow at all–oddly, there’s been more south of us than here–but the temps are crazy and unpredictable. Makes me wonder what to expect next . . .

    No snow here, but temperature definitely at least 10 degrees lower!

  4. When people talk about the four seasons, they are usually in a nice, orderly fashion. Looks like you are getting all of it day-by-day. Enjoy that ironing!

    That was in April, Holy wow! I’m in Japan now. We were still feeingl the cold breeze during that time, but now the season is spot on for summertime.
