We've had almost no snow since Christmas time. We've had a fair bit of rain, and a lot of warm temperatures. And so the lawn is beginning to show. This puts us 6-8 weeks ahead of a normal year. Until this week I didn't dare to believe that this might be IT for winter. I was sure the other half of winter was coming.
But now I have to wonder. The highways department had the sweepers out yesterday, cleaning up the winter's accumulation of sand from the roads. My kids have put the hammock up. The deck is free of snow and basking in sun and warmth. The chickens are laying beautifully again.
Could this possibly really be it?
