We've all survived the holidays and we're well into a new year. Hopefully, everyone had a good year in 2008 and we will all have a better year in 2009. Maybe everyone is sufficiently burnt out on politics (I know I am) and we will have a few months peace before the next batch of political zealots start hammering us with the 2012 elections.

As a recap of last year, we had a late spring: I planted my garden in June just before the final snowfall and lost a few plants. I'm not sure where the summer went but by the time my beefsteak tomatoes were starting to get some size (and still being very green) the first frost took out the entire garden.

We had snow up to our eye balls and then some warmer weather to melt it. Then we had flooding because of the blocked storm drains in some areas or snow melting too quickly. Now, with little snow left (in our area) we are contending with the cold - so much easier to navigate in than the snow. We wake each morning to trees, fences, roofs and everything else frosted like a Christmas display.

With temperatures ranging from 23 (or lower) at night to 37 (maybe) during the day it is frosty but still pretty.

It's BEAUTIFUL! We've been in the 80's here. Looks like it's going to be a HOT summer!!!
