Global Warming? Not here.
I've said it once and I'll say it again. I totally believe in Global Climate Change, and in our area it is more toward the colder spectrum. With this past long, ever lasting, always snowing winter.. and with our super brief 'no sun in sight' Spring.
Yep. It is snowing... We have a snow advisory from 5pm until 2 am. It's 4:29 pm.. Starting early!
We woke to 30 degrees, and ugly skies... The wood stove is going, has been all day.
Now big fat flakes are coming down! And the wind is blowing. First time in our nine years here...
I actually mowed part of the lawn earlier...with my winter hat and heavy coat!
This is not good news for any local farmers. We have a couple apple trees in our yard, and lots in an old orchard at the headquarters, as well as plum trees and a pear tree... Fingers crossed the new blooms/fruit makes it through the night.
My sympathies to all my Farmers Market friends who have backyard gardens or gardens that are not protected.
It's going to be slim pickings this summer.. Slim pickings.
I'm sure I'll be posting photos in the morning.
