Here We Go Again...

Postby Stanton » Thu Mar 21, 2013 6:40 am

Took the tire chains off the Cub last Friday. Got her washed and cleaned up (70+ degree F day). Here's the forecast for my weekend:

I put the tire chains back on after supper last evening. They're calling for 1"-3" accumulation today; up to 6" or 8" for Sunday. With so many other posts about planting, all I can do is dream about it. Ol' man winter has yet to loosen his icy grasp. :evil:

The daffodils have yet to come out of the frozen ground, they are usually blooming by now. And it is snowing again, about one inch has fallen in the past half hour. Oh well, at least it won't hang around for long now. Dang this global warming!

The calendar may say it's spring but with 4" of hard crusty snow on the ground from Tuesday's storm and another storm forecast for Monday into Tuesday next week, we won't be getting a jump on yard cleanup, etc.

We've had some major snow storms in CT in early April over the years. This year is setting up much the same. Easter dinner by the woodstove this year - me thinks!

I feel for you! We lived in NW Michigan for 5 years. My wife tells everybody we moved to Va. Because my garden froze on the first of June.

"Spring" arrived yesterday with a high of 26. Last year was 84. Average is 47. So I guess you can say that for the past two years we have had above average temperatures. Now dosen't that make you feel warmer? Vern

We got over a foot yesterday from early morning around 1am to 9am or so. Was up to 6C today, but more snow in the forecast. Spring ain't here yet :lol:

Last year the early daffodils were already gone by and it as solidly in the 70's. Things have a way of averaging...

We've had a mix of everything the last 2 days here and calling for snow this weekend. Sunday's my first IDPA speed shoot for the season so I might win this time by forfeit.... :lol:

NWS forecasts 3"-7" for Saturday PM, then an additional 2"-4" for Sunday; total of 5"-11" for the weekend for the Kansas City area.

Glad I put my chains back on. :D

These are real snow banks. The tractor is a JD 400 ind. just to give you some idea of the depth of the snow. Don't know if a cub could handle this.
