One year ago I woke up to 60+ degree weather, and enjoyed the high of 83F.  Today I woke up to 19F, and the high will maybe reach 38!   Average high is 60 for this day.  This past Saturday was a nice 72F,  Up down, up down.....been a roller coaster pattern for most all of us.  Sure is hard on the milk cows as well as us humans.

 That's seriously below normal Daniel. This time last year we had super warm temps for several days. It was creepy. 26c in March. This year it's been a bit below normal lately with snow but that is what March is normally like for us.

I hear you, Daniel!

 

Yesterday I had only a light jacket and the doors wide open in my shop.  Today, I can't get enough on to fix the wind chill.  And of course today is the day I have to get a tractor out of the back of the shop, which means drag everything out and HOPE the cold natured farm tractors run that should!!

 

But I thought it was officially spring yesterday?!?!?

Maybe the extra storms can break the drought that have cost many farmers their crops last year.

It's chilly down here too! I'd throw an extra log on the fire if I had a place to start one!
