Okay, it's not quite as bad as that, but here's a quick overview this morning:
At 5:30 a.m., we had 29 degrees.
There was 1/4" of solid ice on the chicken waterer.
The high for today is forecast to be 47 degrees.
There is rain predicted for each of the next four days. (I guess the upside is that it is rain, not snow!) Memorial Day Weekend picnics can be held inside, right?
Last year on this very date, our apple trees were in full blossom. We should be very grateful for our cool, slow spring this year since had the trees had been in blossom this year, we would have lost all hope of any apples because of the drastically low temps last night.
Our usual onslaught of late spring/early summer biting insects haven't even had a chance to appear yet. See? There is good in every situation!
