This has been the strangest pattern of weather. I’m not sure what happened to winter. We missed it entirely and went from fall to spring. No snow. While I’m not a huge fan of copious amounts of frozen precipitation, I do like a soft fluffy snowfall that melts in a couple of days-preferable on a weekend. Out west they are getting feet of snow and scads of rain. The drought in California seems to be over. The concern now is how bad will the bugs be this year?! By June the mosquitos will be big enough to carry of a small cat! If the weather holds, we be planting gardens and flowers soon. Strange weather, but I am enjoying it!
