We had snow showers most of our Wednesday giving us another half inch of the white stuff. We have about 4 inches of ground cover at this time and it won’t be melting anytime soon. I really don’t mind the snow as much as these extreme cold temperatures. For all the snowbirds who went south for the winter, they have had a rude awakening this year. There just doesn’t seem to be any escape from winter in much of the U.S. I’m happy at least that we aren’t getting any major winter storms like what is affecting the eastern seaboard. Of course, there is a lot of winter left and we could still get pounded before it ends. We will start seeing a warmup this weekend, and we can only hope that it will stay that way.
