It’s snowing and it’s been snowing. It’s cold as well. Oddly enough the arrival of something close to a winter has me wondering how I ever managed to survive winter before. Trust me next week’s lows that hover around 0F (-17C) aren’t helping, and although it’s one night and we are guaranteed at least a foot or two of protective snow cover, it’s still co-co-cold!
I just looked outside and it appears we’re about a foot and a half into new snow. It’s doubtful I’ll be sharing photos of all that but I figured I’d let you know.
Actually the most dangerous thing about snow and cold are the online temptations. Seed exchanges, seed orders, plant orders, delusions about trees I need and new bulbs I have to have are a daily struggle. I know you can share my pain if not appreciate my resolve, and so far my only real transgression has been five pounds of mixed caladium bulbs. According to some estimates that’s about 100 caladiums, and thats obviously a few more than I need.
So I hope the snow finds you well and for those in milder climates who are missing it, well I suspect you’re not really missing it at all and you’ll be just fine. In any case we’re a month past the winter equinox and this is when our average temperatures begin to climb once again… regardless of the ten day forecast.
