oh march...




well.... the weather here has been pretty unpredictable lately. it's been something along the lines of hail, rain, snow, rain, hail, wind.... whew. monday we traveled into town for layla's dance class and i decided that we should probably make a grocery trip while we were there. i had all four kids with me and as we walked into the store the rain was pouring down on us like a waterfall. it was crazy. i noticed on the drive home that there was some snow mixed in with that rain and shortly after the sun went down it was snowing wildly! we were so excited. then, somewhere in the middle of the night it started raining. we still had a lot of snow the next day but it was very wet and heavy. that snow took down many trees and put many of us out of power. i was feeling very fortunate for that wood stove and giant woodpile. even though we felt somewhat inconvenienced, we still had heat and we were able to cook and heat water. we were very lucky. there were many people around here having a hard time even making it to their homes. a small group of men (my husband included) spent most of their morning and afternoon driving around the area with chainsaws helping to clear the roads. such wonderful community servants! i must admit... the first thing i thought after the snow started was "oh no! are my flowers going to make it through this?" i have really been enjoying their wonderful presence and they really just got started so i would be pretty disappointed to loose them so soon. i'm really glad that this storm hit before the apple trees blossomed. fingers crossed for good pollinating weather once they do bloom!

can you believe that we are already half way through march? that means only one and a half more months of yucky weather dear friends and then it's beautiful sunshine. the first day of spring is less than a week away. the never ending winter is almost over.
