Not quite a TROPICAL heat wave - yet - but the weather during this Spring Break is unbelievably warm for March. Since the weekend, more than half the back yard has become clear of snow. Just one week ago, we had about 4" of snow fall; today they're predicting thunderstorms for the evening. And Sunday is supposed to be 20 degrees! This weather would be good one month from now, but in March...! No sign of the rhubarb yet, but I've bet Dean that the first pink shoots will be poking up by the end of the weekend. The ice on the river all went out on Tuesday night. I'm glad I ordered my seed potatoes to come 2 weeks early this year.
