We have been having the strangest winter, weather-wise. Hardly any major snowfall to speak of and not many days when the temperatures have gone down to the -20′s a they usually do. In fact so far we have gotten off really lightly, but will it last?
Last Friday we had a good amount of snow fall, about 4 inches which made for a long and not very nice drive home. It was cold Saturday and Sunday but apparenlty temps are going to rise again this week which will take away most of the snow. Very strange. We did have a few days of bone-chilling cold and this was the result of an ice storm a couple of weeks ago. Chris took this of our deck.
We have noted some of the plants starting to sprout and trees are starting to get buds on them, well ahead of time. Trouble is if we do end up getting winter late it might kill everything off before it has had a chance to grow at all.
The deer have not been round as much this year, but the raccoons have unfortunately.
One good thing is we have had lots of nice sunrises and sunsets. This was one the other night.
Looking ahead, Stacey and Amy will be coming out again in June, so that will be great. Not sure where we are going to the them as we went to a lot of places last year and of course Stacey has been a few more times than Amy so has been to even more places. I’m sure we will think of somewhere. Have to get our thinking caps on. At least the weather should be good, although there will be bugs about at that time of year which will be annoying.
