If you saw my last post, you know that right here, in the nation's midsection, where the average annual snowfall is around three feet, folks were out and about this past week in shirtsleeves, shorts and sandals in the near-70-degree temps.
Today, it's a different story.
Most winters, we'd be sick of snow by now. We'd be whimpering 'cuz Phil saw his shadow and we had six more weeks of an already long winter left. But this winter, as is the case in much of the country, we've hardly had snow to speak of. A small event in December, a tiny flurry here and there and temperatures 10 to 40 degrees above normal. We haven't had a winter--yet.
So--for me anyway--this is as exciting as that first big snow event we usually have in December. It's hard to tell how much is on the ground right now, but predictions are that we will have about 12" by this evening.
Let's add a little color to a beautifully whitewashed day. Here's how the bulb garden looks now.
Ours is indeed a world of contrasts.
Make it a great day!
