    I've felt cheated,, we didn't have a Winter! So I've been outside working this week while I've been off,, temps in the 80's,, fussing about how hot it is and it's just March,, soooooooooooo.......
    Tonight it's going to be 28! Furnace is all shut down, slides out of coolers, windows uncovered on coops,... yes, she has a lousy sense of humor!

    I think Oklahoma's got a blizzard warning. A trip to Tulsa would probably be cheap.

    Sorry about your weather. I saw sun today and had t-shirt weather for the first time this year!

    Now there's another front moving in.

    Blah!

    Yep there is some pretty cold weather right above us. I don't think I'll complain again,, at least not until it's too hot again!

    I planted a bunch of stuff, strawberries, potatoes, onions, peas, and some gamble stuff like carrots and I can't remember what all else.

    So if we get an April snowstorm, it's my fault.

    All my fruit trees are blooming too, forgot about that. Steven just pointed out that the mesquite bushes haven't turned yet, no buds,, that is a dead sign we are still going to freeze, so I just didn't pay attention.
