I was looking at the weather report this morning. The map shows that we have yet another “Hazardous Weather Outlook.” In other words it’s probably going to precipitate in some loathsome way today.
Like most people in this area, I am weary of this winter that just won’t go away. Today is March 30, and in the last week, we’ve had two rather unpleasant winter storms. One dumped 11-inches of snow and the other about 4. At least we didn’t lose our electricity anyway.
By the end of March, I really lose my sense of humor about snow. My mailbox is chock full of gardening catalogs, but at this point, we still have 3.5 feet of snow on the ground. I know my garden is under there somewhere, but who knows when I’ll actually see it. Maybe in May?
News reports also are saying that the snow during this winter that won’t end has now equaled the “legendary” North Idaho winter of 1968-1969. Oh and the snow pack in the mountains is higher than usual. Gee, ya think?
Here is today’s view of the garden.

The hoop house is going to need a bit of repair, assuming we ever see it again.
Note that the snow pile from the roof still reaches the second story of the house.
