OH, March how I love you!
Besides being born in the first week of March
many flowers if given a chance can begin their progress and you know I love flowers but with this weather, which is truly NUTS, not sure what will survive but we know nature has its way right.
We had been in the 30’s and 40’s then the forecast said a chance of snow, but it would only stick to the grass, sure, as I woke to almost 4 inches with temps and they said temps were about to soar into the 40’s and 50’s F I didn’t believe them, would you?
I have a very small car and have been waiting patiently for a call for an injection in my shoulder, so I got the John Deere out and made a pass along my driveway as well as the whole town road, yes that is how bad the shoulder has been, I needed to get out if the call came.
Well, they were right by 3:00 p.m. when I got the call from the doctor’s office, to set up an appointment (a week from now mind you), the snow had all but melted leaving mud everywhere.
You can see by the pretty sky there was a chance they may be right this time, but having had to move the snow I was not impressed with the mess this beauty left behind.
So now for today, Friday, it will be glorious. Temps in the 40’s and 50’s with guess what, yes more snow, some parts of my state seeing 12+ inches great for spring skiing but for gardeners oops not so much.
Well again they are forecasting for my area a light coating to 3″ I guess I will have to be prepared this time starting with buying $5-$6 a gallon of diesel for the tractor. You all know the pain if you live on a fixed income, we have to make what little we are allotted monthly to spread just a little thinner.
One more parting shot of pretty snow-covered trees as I signoff and get ready for whatever comes our way, though the winds are something I cannot do anything about except to love these trees while I still have them standing.
Please stay safe if you are in harm’s way on the other side of the world. I cannot imagine living through a pandemic to now be in the middle of a war zone, so though I complain about the weather know that I know it is very trivial but that you are all in my prayers to get through this and for the insanity to stop. I am praying you can rejoin your family members that had to stay and fight.
