Crazy weather. As I look out the window here, light snowflakes fill the air.  Little to any field work has been done yet.

I thought this was going to be about a argument someone was having with their wife.

The latest it has ever snowed in Tulsa was Apr 23rd 1953. Now it broke the record by 2 weeks.

Yep the Weather is just plain broke!! The snow has just changed to rain here.

UPS delivered my Kablooie Blueberries yesterday while it was snowing.

Guess I'll have to go out in the rain and mud them in tomorrow?

I know the weather men say we got 2" but it sure wasn't 2" at my house and I only live about 1/4 from Larryd, looks more like maybe 1".

Well if it was like it was here, most of it melted as it hit the ground. I had about 2-3" of snow and the weatherman said we had gotten 1.6" of moisture yesterday.

Three counties around here have lost electricity.  Many tree branches and utility poles down.

I'm running on one of my generators and the landlords green tractor is utilizing my other one as he can't get it to start.  :smilewink:

He told me if I can't get to start by nearly dark to call him and he would come over with his red tractor to feed his cows. 

 

I told him to figure on bringing the red one.  :dancingbanana:

Not so fast my friend.  The Global Warming theory INCLUDES freakish weather.  Why, we could have a decade of cooler than normal temperatures and it would be the start of a new ice age BROUGHT ON BY GLOBAL WARMING!!

Dick , I measured just a hair over 2" on my table on my deck at 5:30  . A man that works for the city that I drink coffee with in the afternoons said it varied like that all over the west center and east side. He said that some of the east side had 3 to 4 on their cars around 7 am .
