Here it is, late afternoon, January 26, 2015. It’s dry outside, very light wind, filtered sunshine, and about 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Quite frankly, we haven’t seen any real winter here in the Pacific Northwest this season. Of course, last year we had quite the snow storms in February and ice storms in March, so I realize winter is far from over. But I would never have imagined getting a picture of Poncho, out on the tractor, doing some field prep for this coming spring and summer. Isn’t he the cutest thing on the tractor?
Even Ginger got outside and enjoyed the sunny afternoon.
We did have a very brief snow event back in November. A whopping two inches fell. And it stuck around for almost a week because the temperatures were quite cold at the time. But since then only rain.
Not much snow pack in the Cascades either which doesn’t bode well for this coming summer. Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, today was spectacular, but I sure hope we get some regular winter weather soon.
