Just so we don't all get cocky, Mother Nature throws us for a loop once in a while. For example, she gave us a good two weeks of what was essentially summer weather. And then, just to make sure we know where we stand, winter returns:
But, the intelligent ones among us knew this was bound to happen - after all, it is still early April. Admittedly, it's only about three-quarters of an inch of snow (so far) - just barely enough to put a layer of slush on the water in the rain barrels and not enough to completely silence the peepers yesterday evening, but I think it was enough to dampen the spirits of the worms that had crawled out of the ground to escape this week's rain.
