I've noticed that there are a number of people who are letting themselves get a bit on the grumpy side with the cold weather and the snow. I wonder if they've taken a look at how nice everything looks out there right now?
|First step outside of our door.|
Out of curiosity, I randomly chose to go to the weather history for April 9th of a different year (2009) and I noticed that there was mention of snowfall in April. A quick look found this. 4.3" of the white stuff on April 5, 2009. Or, dare I remind you of May 2013 again?
|Besides, did I mention that it was kinda pretty?|
I'll grant you that snow makes farm chores a bit more difficult. The cold weather has really put a crimp on our getting an early start on any of our veggie crops. They really are just holding on in the high tunnels right now - not much incentive to grow. But, we didn't get much snow during the period that we would normally associate with snow. So, forgive me if I actually take a moment to enjoy the short-lived beauty.
|Hey, that looks kinda.. um... pretty.|
|Besides, I still think... oh, you got the point? Never mind.|
Here is a picture from the farm from April 16 last year. See! Green grass!
And April 9 two years ago. See! Gree.... um. No. Skip that one.
|Spring is on the way - hang in there!|
