In February we had an unusual amount of foggy weather. According to old farm wisdom, a foggy day means rain on that date three months later. We do hope that proves to be true. But first, let the farmers get their seeding done, and then let the rain bless the crops.
I've been keeping a garden journal since 2003, and on this date I notice that 4 of the 8 years since then we've had snow on this date. Statistically the majority of our yearly snowfall occurs in March. But I've seen snow here in July, and heard that it's possible any month of the year.
Of course, when we get snow out of season it doesn't last long. Just hope there wasn't too much damage to trees and shrubs from this heavy spring snow. To prevent that damage, Jim went around this morning shaking the snow off our trees and shrubs.
