Someone Took the Covers
Just when I thought the plants were all tucked in their beds with a nice little cover of snow to help protect them from the cold, a warmer air mass and rain changed all that. Sometimes December days here are much like spring. The temperature is up in the forties. The ice in the river is melting or heading downstream. The snow on the countryside is nearly gone. The streams and river are rising and running fast.
Of course the cold will be back and so will the snow. I'm very sure of that. When, who knows? When you live, or are planted in upstate New York, you have to expect surprises. It goes with the territory.
