Will winter ever end? April ice.

Sunday, April 15, 2018

This weekend we had an ice storm in West Michigan. We gathered about half an inch of ice where I live, but thankfully we did not lose electricity as 50,000 others did. We were fortunate. But it is April 15, why is there an ice storm when I am supposed to be tilling the garden, preparing for planting? I'm really in no mood at this time, this is the January that will never end. The long range forecast is for a warm up next weekend followed by more cold, below average temps. I just want to feel like it is spring already, feel the warm air rejuvenate me and get me motivated. As winter lasts 6 months this year I am finding it hard to see the brighter side.

Well the picture is pretty anyway. I don't mean to complain, I'm just so over this weather in Michigan this year!

    Wow, yes I was aware that areas to the west of me had much snow, northern lower Michigan got 16 inches too. I'm thankful the ice didn't cause us to lose our electric for days or something as happened in 2013, 8 days at Christmas that year.

    I'm looking forward to some warmer weather this weekend!

    We here in Mankato MN had a foot of snow from the same weather front! Our lakes are covered with snow at this time so it will be a while be for they melt!

    It really does bring the motivation down when winter lasts 6 months.
