Every winter is different in our area. This morning the temperature was down to 2 degrees, the same that it was on January 7. But today it is already warming up to melt the snow (about 36 at 2:30 p.m.) and forecast to reach 60 degrees this Saturday. These warm-ups (and a woodstove) make these extreme cold spells somewhat tolerable.
One of these light snow storms was on January 21 where I ventured down our driveway with Kookie before the snow started melting. We just seem to miss the big ones that have pummeled the northeast. I am not complaining though!
I am already looking at seed catalogs and thinking about an early spring garden.
