Aren’t we Animals?


Yes! So… can we tell when winter is coming and how long it will be, etc…….without looking at the Farmer’s Almanac, and googling it? Hubby reminded me yesterday, while we peered out the window at the dusky white day that had arrived, about the year that winter had arrived and stayed so early, years ago. […]

Snow?


Huh? It’s June 4. The moral of the day is: Be careful what you pray for. I prayed for moisture. I got it. At 6 am it was only three degrees C above the freezing mark!     I planted my corn, tomato and flower transplants just 4 days ago. The corn is sagging–ewwwh!   […]

Fog Forecast


According to ‘Hoya’ (some unknown character that gets blamed for everything), when there is significant fog, then there will be significant precipitation 90 days later. So…today there was light fog almost all day. I think the amount of the fog determines how much moisture later on. You can just make out the hills in the distance in […]

weather update


  The sky is grey and dripping. the temperture is cooler. No doubt the storm has arrived. It wondered last night if maybe I was wrong. Hubby asked me to check what the government report said for today and it declared dry and sunny. I was preparing myself for some ‘crow eating’, but I guess […]
