Well we got some more snow yesterday. One of my regular readers had comments on one of my weekend posts that it looked like we had no snow. We didn’t! It was freezing cold here for the last week and there wasn’t a flake of snow on the ground.
Those of you who don’t garden or don’t experience severe cold weather may not realize this, but when it’s really cold outside the snow helps to insulate and protect the plants in our yards. When there’s no snow the plants are exposed to all of the elements and it’s not a surprise when you end up losing a few plants in the spring as a result. So I’m happy that it snowed!
Our puppy is happy that it snowed too. She just loves to jump around in the snow and even roll in it. I have a feeling she’d be happy if there was snow outside all year round! I’ll take that as a sign that she’ll probably also enjoy the beach and frolicking in the water come summer.
You know what’s really weird? Over the weekend we went to Walmart to get a few things and on probably the coldest day of the year so far we saw a man walking around with a set of Cleveland golf clubs. I can’t remember where I saw the man – perhaps it was outside one of the malls we went to … but it sure was strange seeing someone walking around with a big golf club bag when it was so very cold outside.
