First Day Of Spring

This week ends Maple Sunday event had a great turn out, but we froze.
Giving wagon rides the passangers snuggled under quilts.
I will try to get ahold of Bob's computer to post photo's tonight (mine still wont down load pictures).

Tomorrow is the first day of spring, and we are 8hours into a snow storm.
Makes me wonder how the Farmers Almanac is sooooo much better at predictions than the local weather man.
This is the predictions posted by The Farmers Almanac (in February)

March 2013

16th-19th. Unsettled, gusty winds, with mixed rain and wet snow.

20th-23rd. A major coastal storm with strong winds and heavy precipitation.

24th-27th. Showers from Virginia and Maryland to New England, then fair.

28th-31st. Another coastal storm! More wind, rain and snow, just in time for Easter.

In protest I am going forward with thoughts of spring

our weather today predicted snow and freezing fog. freezing fog...isnt that just tinier bits of snow? LOL

actually, the more wet weather we get this year, the happier we will be - after the fire, all we had was dry dry dry and nothing really did green up. Hopefully this year will be wayyy different!
