The picture above, from Glacier National Park, is pretty much what I would expect to see for this time of year. What I would not expect is that the temperature and wind chill factor just outside our front door is only 10 degrees higher than the temperature in Glacier.
Yep, it feels like 24 degrees here in the deep South, just a little over a hundred miles from the sunny Gulf coast. Bright sunshine with the wind gusting to 20 mph.
A quick look around the country, with the help of webcams, shows that it isn’t any better in lots of places.
Even the coast itself, looks cold, despite the sunshine.
My grandfather liked to have most of the garden planting done by Good Friday. I’m not sure if that plan would be the correct one for this year. A friend planted tomato’s last week, but I’m pretty sure he will be pulling them up today, and placing them back in a warm place for a while longer.
On a brighter note, plans are beginning to gel for the Summer Tour, as we have begun to call it. Not exactly sure of departure date yet, but it seems the West wins again. A couple of things are still up in the air, but I’m sure we’ll be happy however they fall out.
Hope it’s warm where you are. I’m sure it won’t be long before I’m griping about how hot it is.
