Just to add to our already strange winter weather, we are now experiencing a genuine January thaw.
This caricature would be applicable today . . . except for the fact that we haven't had enough snow to construct a single snowman yet this winter season.
While those of you on the East Coast have already had or are bracing for a significant snowfall, the piddling little amount we've had on the ground continues to melt away.
Overnight temperatures were above freezing (again) and my poor garden beds are once again bare and shivering in the extreme dampness. We humans almost have to put on more clothing to go out in this weather in order to be comfortable than we did when the temp was below zero. It's that darn dampness that gets ya.
On the positive side, we've not been going through much of our wood supply in the last couple of weeks, and if this snowless winter continues we may have an early spring for getting a jump start on the garden.
Plans for today are to put in some more time on the never-ending sorting/cleaning/organizing job in the unheated loft/attic. And I must be honest and admit it does feel better working up there in 35 degree weather than when it was below zero. Still with jackets, hats and gloves on, of course.
Happy weekend to all of you!
