Where Is Spring?

Ginnie BakerIt’s almost the end of February and we’re having the worst weather of the winter! This past week, our temperature dropped to minus 12 with a wind chill of minus 30 and more snow. Our schools were closed three out of five days last week.

My friend, Kim, and I are really getting tired of this weather! Daylight saving begins on March 8 and spring officially arrives on March 20 ... that’s only four weeks away but seems like a very long time.

We had so much snow on Saturday, our friend, Gary, had to plow us out again!


The birds and other critters are having a very difficult time with the snow and cold so we fill the dozen feeders on the homestead at least six times a day. Even the pileated woodpecker arrived to help himself to suet. It’s been tough for all the wildlife out here.
