The View from Here :: Looking Out

Looking Out

This Winter has spoiled us.  We've all become accustomed to running outside without coats or hats on.  We've been used to mild breezes and drippy rain.  To have the weather turn SO cold after a month of sunshine and daffodils is a little tough.  We'd forgotten what Winter was like, I guess.  Cabin fever has been the theme of the week.  It stayed in the twenties all day yesterday, though the sun did bring a little melting.  I think it is likely that my blueberries are frostbitten, with the wind and cold.  Oh, well.  That cold wind couldn't get at my broccoli waiting on the kitchen windowsill.  There is frost creeping up the storm windows this morning and we've got plans for nature school at the Snail Place.  I'm hoping there will be some snow there for us to enjoy, all bundled up.  Everyone's waking up, so happy Thursday!

I *love* that photo! Yes, this winter has spoiled us! Snow is wondrous in January and magical in February but a disappointment in March. For a while, I actually thought I would be able to do some early planting, but that is out of the question now. I hope your blueberries survive. Getting outdoors always makes me feel better. Enjoy your nature school day. ♥

Isn't it sweet? :-) We have been spoiled, for sure. I would have loved this weather in January. I toyed with early planting, but I think April is a much better time.

We must be trading weather back and forth -- today is it brilliantly sunny and in the high 50s here!!!!

Normal for March for here is 58 for the average high. Considering that, I think we must get lots of below average temperatures around here, being this little strip of boreal remnants. You remember the Blizzard of 93? That was this time 24 years ago! We missed a MONTH of school.

I don't know what our plans are. I think we've been in Spring mode for so long that I hardly know what to do anymore. ;-)

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
