Blow wind blow!!

For weeks I have been talking about our rain, mud and cold weather. God bless those who live north of here. That cannot be pleasant and I apologize to all my readers! This has been a tough winter for everyone.

For those in South Texas, we endured many weeks of dry, over 100 degree weather during the summer followed closely by a harsh winter for the south. We have not had a break from extremes in about a year. I expect those who are north of us have experienced much the same.

So to give you something to look forward to I am giving you a list of dates that once reached means we are closer to spring and away from the snow, sleet, blowing wind, rain and all that makes us miserable...

Daylight savings time is March 14th. Rain, sleet or snow we should begin to feel like spring is around the corner if the days are getting a little longer. On better days this will give us much needed daylight to spend in the yard or on the acreage getting ready for planting or just to do outside tasks that were neglected during the inclement weather. This is the 4th weekend after this one.... you can see thatin your mind...and the light at the end of the tunnel is starting to shine...

1st official day of Spring is March 20th. That is the very next weekend....

Good Friday is April 2nd with Easter April 4th. This is only 3 weeks after daylight savings time starts. By then, we should be getting a little warmer. Some long term forecasts say most if not all the precipitation will be gone. You should start to see wild flowers on the side of the road.

So you see, spring really is around the corner...just keep these dates in focus and you can get through these very cold days....
