Well, you know how I'd been hoping for a lil' snow instead of the ice. Yesterday morning we woke up and the pond was overflowing and the water was standing everywhere - I ran out and checked the gage - and we had gotten 4.5 inches of rain in less than 24 hours. Now, I'm not for sure if this is correct - but hubby says, for every one inch of rain - that equals nearly 10 inches of snow. So needless to say, if it had fallen in the frozen form - we'd be snowed in, well forever. Like I said, not for sure if he's got that exactly right - but it's fun to think of it - 45 inches of snow that would have been. But just as we were watching it rain - it turned to snow jus' like that - a really hard blowing snow - and then it was gone - once again, jus' like that. But I was glad we got to experience a lil' bit of it.
We still have a lil' bit of the white stuff hanging around. It'll be gone by the weekend - suppose to be nearly 50 degrees.
But just as we are enjoying a lil' snow - I must remember all the people who were heavily affected by this storm - no electricity, no water. It really is a sad situation - so we will continue to remember them and hope that things are back in order for them real soon.
I hope you all enjoy a wonderful weekend. I've got to go work in my store - oh my, I've been off for a few weeks and I'm suppose to open back up next week, and needless to say - it sorely needs attention. And Yes, this weekend we will be seeding lots of spring flowers in our greenhouse - so I think my lazy days "of winter" are over. I'll keep you posted on all of the happenings at Cobblestone Farms.
Many Blessings, Cathy
