What a Difference

What a difference a year has made!

Last year we had a warming spell that gave us open ground on this same date. By the end of this week it appears we will be headed up into the  40's for highs so  the ground will once again be peeking out. Going to be a strange phenomena since we've had snow on the ground since December 9th.


Is it Spring yet? ;)

Suppose to warm up here as well.

The Hunter's Wife - I think a whole bunch of us will get to see some days that will push us outside to play, or at least take a walk. ;)

I fear the old saying about March. "In like a lamb means out like a lion" or something like that. I am still going to be cautious before I can declare "spring" in Idaho. Sometimes we just have summer and winter!

Mel - I too hold the same thought. Iowa seems to follow with the Lamb and Lion forecasting method too. In fact last year we got snow on March 8th and I believe twice in April with the latest date being the 16th. We will see what Mother Nature has to say in all my hopeful prognosticating. ;)
