    A few minutes early ... but I don't think the wether will change much in the next 20 minutes ...

    April 1st - rain and mud on top of mud ... Our road is a mess!

    And how is the weather in your neck of the woods! :D

    The snowstorm headed for the NE is just going to give us some light rain. :D

    The ground is starting to dry a bit but I really need about 4-5 days of no rain and temps in the 50's to prepare the garden.

    Snowing here as well.

    Spread the manure on the garden the other day but way too wet to rototill it.

    Sunny, calm, and 90 degrees here in southern Nevada. I'm having to water my container garden (lettuce, cantaloupe, potatoes, etc. in buckets) daily and keeping them in the shade of the camper.

    Back home in Montana it's cloudy and in the 40's. Our son says the mud/slush on our road (3 mile dirt road) is as deep as the bumper of his pick-up truck in some places. Spring break-up is always worse than winter, as far as driving.

    I don't guess we'll head home for a few more weeks! :D

    We are in a major drought on the front range of CO, but the Mtns are over predicted snow pack. We are predicted to continue with warmer and drier than normal weather this Summer, which will make gardening harder.

    Well our weather forecasters earned their money being wrong again. Woke up at 6:00 this morning to 1.5" of slushy global warming. :rolleyes: Cloudy and drizzly the rest of the day.

    Haven't been outside to check the temp yet today but it's been cold and rainy (or sometimes cold and sunny) for the last week. Very unseasonal.

    We are getting a bunch of snow here, not so cold , just below freezing, but about 14 inches of wet white stuff so far. Hope the dry places get some moisture soon.

    NaeKid YourAdministrator, eh?

    It took me a day-n-half to shovel out the yard - about 14" of snow was pushed off of my Jeeps that fell in about 24hrs ... then I got started on moving the snow around my front-yard to my garden-area and moving the snow from the backyard to my garden-area and making a path to my truck ... and then removed the snow from my camper so that my solar-panels could see the sun again ....

    Lots and lots of snow, and, while it was comin' down hard-n-heavy, went motorcycle shopping! :2thumb:

    The rain is getting to be too much here.
    We have had ONE DRY DAY in 2 months. This week we're expecting 2+ inches of rain. My once 30x50ft pond is now probably 100x100ft and 8ft deep. I swear it has it's own current. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the moon ;) :2thumb: It has it's own waves now and there can be no wind at all blowing.
    The ground is so wet I went outside in the backyard and my foot went a good inch and a half through the grass and I slipped and when I fell, a bunch of water went shooting up into the air and back on me.

    NOT HAVING FUN!! :gaah:
