    Unwanted creatures from the far north made a return visit during the night. North of here they received as much as 2" of the unwanted stuff. For all those versed in weather lore this is "Poor man's fertilizer." If weathermen were elected, the electorate would be screaming "RECALL, RECALL." This year, for the first time, the Boston Marathon will issue snowshoes to the runners. Have no fear, tomorrow it might be 90°F :eek:

    P.S. Hmmm…if I get a box large enough, I can mail myself to Texas. :)

    Jerry, I'll see that you get a large box. Bring the wife, too!

    It would be so depressing to put up with that white stuff still.
    Get on down here Jerry... but you'd better hurry, because our 100f temps will be here before you know it, and then you'll be wishing for some of that cold stuff. :-D

    I'm afraid there's be no point in you coming over to Scotland Jerry as we're supposed to get the white stuff here on Sunday.

    Jerry has it ever happened that you had snow in April before? I really wonder if the seasons are just being shifted by two months or will it be the shortest gardening viable period in memory this year.
    Love your writing style!
