This was a very mild winter, which was nice, but it's too late in the season for snow.

There are all kinds of flowers and blooming trees here that will be hurt.

Here too, although the forecast doesn't call for it to get below 32 tonight, which makes me wonder why they are calling for snow in the first place. It seems more likely that we will get a cold rain, but they are saying snow.

We don't have anything in bloom yet, but some early flowers are starting to come up, and the buds were starting to swell on the lilacs. It was only 17 degrees this morning, so I hope it didn't hurt anything.

Frigging cold . . . . that is all.

Winter storm heading this way in the next couple of days.

Damn near 80 yesterday. Mid 50's today. It's a good thing I like roller coasters.

It's supposed to get into the mid 20's Wednesday and Thursday night. That might severely damage the peach crop, which is a heavy crop for SC.

We did have some snow falling last night and this morning, but it was only a dusting and the roads were fine, which is good since we went to the Sanctuary today.

We could be looking at a fair amount here. I'm going to decide tomorrow whether or not to bring the snow blower up from the garden shed. Didn't think I'd be using it this year.

The latest forecast puts us in the 8 - 12 inch band. I just brought the blower up to the garage.

Broke down and turned the A/C on last night. Just too hot in the house with the high temps outside.
