We got lucky again. They are saying now for us here in Suffolk VA it will now be only some rain. That as well will not last long.

Well... all my plum, apricot, nectarine and peach trees have already bloomed and the fruit is starting to set... apples, pears, cherries are all close behind. I'm just hoping that we don't get a late frost again...

Stay warm, you two...

We got hit with a foot last week here in northern NV. Of course it's all gone in the city now (gotta love the desert), but the Sierras still have a good amount.

Here in MD, we got about 12" of snow yesterday.  Today, it reached about 50F.

I don't recall ever having snow like this on the 1st day of spring.
