Mother Nature and January Weather
« on: January 30, 2013, 10:29 AM »
I know.... spring is near. Some in the south and south west maybe starting the transplant season but here in Northern Vermont the weather has been unusual.

Last Wednesday at 11 AM it was negative 14 degrees F. It is now a week later and the temperature is positive 43 with a high today expected to be in the low 60's....... and yes by the end of the wek it will get back down to the high teens.

I'm confused, think about the trees.

Yes, but its time to go collect sugar maple sap! This is the weather pattern that makes it all possible.  :)

My kids have been sheltering in place on and off all day long at school due to tornado warnings...I hate tornados...particularly in January.

It's been a wild month here in western NY. 69 deg on the 13th, followed by a week of temps in the teens (last week), back up to 63 today. I've got dandelions blooming in the yard...don't think I've seen that before in late January. Well, maybe when I lived in Virginia.

Back to the deep freeze starting tomorrow.
