Our frozen, wintry weather has turned more Spring'is......for like a nanosecond. Today's high is supposed to be around 55 degrees. Yesterday topped 40 degrees. But the next two days are in the lower 30's, and 2" - 4" of snow expected between tonight and tomorrow. Wish Mother Nature would make up her mind. It seems as soon as a thaw starts, a freeze comes right after it and returns everything back to an ice rink. I wonder how the fruit trees are taking it. They've been covered in ice three times now so I'm hoping the buds have survived.
The barnyard, and just about everywhere else around here, is one big slushy mess. Remember when those Slushy drinks were all the rage? I remember when they first came out. My girlfriend and I would go to the local park and then with our saved up allowance in pocket, would walk across the "busy" road and fill up the largest "Super Slurpy" cup with an sugar-filled, icy, slushy Coca-Cola. Much like the yard, except the caramel coloring of the slushy outside my door isn't so much from a cola beverage, but from mud and animal poop. Yummy, hugh?
Time to go out and do the afternoon barn check. Got to find my muck boots.
