We have certainly seen some strange weather this winter and spring and it is still managing to baffle us. It is hard to know what to keep in your closet and what to put away. For now I'm going to just leave things as they are since last Saturday we had a beautiful Spring day of 70 degrees and yesterday we had snow and wind with a temp that started out in the morning at 41 then rose to 54 and then promptly fell 20 degrees in the course of a couple hours. At least today has started out sunny with the promise of maybe 50. But that frost did a little damage to some plants like the Elderberry and my Daffodils that were just starting to bloom. The lake went out the earliest I have have ever seen in the almost 34 years that I have been here. It went out on March 18 at 2:18 pm. I'm not sure what this will do for the Ice Out Contest, and we'll probably have to decide at the next Board meeting so don't get your hopes up if you sent your guess in before the actual due date. Just when you think you have all the bases covered, Mother Nature likes to mess with you.
