    Will the snow ever stop???

    It's April 26th, perennials are trying to emerge from the ground. It's -1oC with a -10oC wind chill and it's blowing snow!!! Forecast is for 5-10 cm on Monday night, on top of what we're getting now. Good Grief!!!!

    We had beautiful weather early last week, but on Wednesday the snow started. It's been snowing off and on ever since and is to continue till Wednesday. All my little planties that are trying to live are probably going to be toast. It's currently blowing snow so hard I cannot see the trees at the back of the house.

    Not till Thursday I believe.

    It needs to get warm, I've got 25 tomato plants and 25 cucumber plants growing inside that are going to want outside sooner than later!!

    Man.. I'd take some snow...

    It's been TOO warm here for April. The last four days have been above 80 F. That's WAY too warm this soon.

    And to think we had snow at the beginning of April too. I had to cover my Hostas with empty planters to keep them from going mushy!

    Interesting month.

    It's been too warm for April too here. We had June temperatures the last 2 weeks, around 20-25 C. This week is more normal I think, around 15C and even less.

    Wow, that sounds like Ohio weather. We finally got our break and it's been in the 80's for the last few days. Not sure how long it will last, though. We usually have one big cold blast before the full moon in May.
    Blessings,

    In the 80's here. We put the AC in the window yesterday. I'd prefer the cold and snow.

    Not getting any better!!!

    Got a dump overnight, it is still snowing now at 6 am.

    Forecast has me completely frustrated. 10-20 cm today, up to 30 tomorrow!!!

    Say it isn't so!!!

    Anyone know how to run a tractor? Want to play in the snow and find the driveway?

    And here we are - having an August heat wave in April. Today will be the 3rd straight day in the 90's, and one more to go before we get more seasonable temps in the 60's. Just a week ago it was in the 40's!
