    You would think that with all this wonkiness with the weather, that people would start paying attention to global warming as a serious problem. Enjoy your marigolds while you have them.

    I SHOULD be in FL where it's in the 80's, but I'm in NW PA and have a skin rash from the dry furnace heat. It's been in the 50's here, then the 30's, the lowest was 29. Thankfully, no snow.

    I am in FL and while I don't care for the freezing cold, I would really like a stretch of time in the 60's and low 70's

    My snowdrops have been blooming since just after Christmas which makes you think spring is on its way. Just hope we haven't a heavy frost or it could really set them back. The only saving thing for us is we are near coast and don't get severe frosts. It has been a really mild winter so far.

    I woke up to 8.6 degree's here in Minnesota this morning. I live near the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St Paul) but the northwestern part of Minnesota is getting below zero temps this week. Last week we had rain so you never know what will happen here in Minnesota.

    For dry skin, i have a small humidifier, you use a 20 oz. Soda bottle in it.

    It's been mid to high 20's at night here, and the high in the 30's during the day -- not much rain right now (what a blessing that is!), and had a little sunshine today, which lately has been scarce. I want spring, but here in this area, we can get snow well into March...so it makes it interesting when it comes to working in the garden....

    I just feel we are witnesses to the earth changing/evolving. It has done this many times-some very subtle others very dramatic-----disappearance of dinosaurs and melting of the great glaciers come to mind. Whatever thre reason for the changes, there is a reason that maybe we have no control over, remember we are only guests here and our time here is limited in reality and whatever "damage" we do will be adjusted/corrected in time...........

    And today it is +27 degrees at 7:30 AM in St. Paul. Hey, we're tough here. We take the cold and talk about the heat. We take the heat and talk about the cold. We don't complain in Minnesota. Yah, we had rain here too and there is still a little ice left on the steps, but it got so cold the other night that most of it freeze-dried (very popular word in Minnesota in the winter). We can hang our sheets outside, which I have done many times, in the winter and bring them into the house in the evening - freeze dried. I hang out my quilts in the winter and bring them in cold and crawl under those covers and freeze and then warm up so nice and toasty. I can't complain about our weather. Love it or leave it! That's Minnesota speak! Edie PS Absolutely nothing is coming up, what grass you can see is brown, everythng is totally asleep for about two more months and then all heaven lets loose and it is gorgeous around here.

    Unhappy Snow

    2/3 inches in northern NY 32 degrees. Made sure my bird feeders were full last night. Bright and beautiful but then I am inside looking out. Snow day for children. Lots of fun.
