Our land temps are WAY above normal. Real easy to judge cause you normally
couldn't dig a hole without a jackhammer around here until about March or
April and I've been digging and moving stuff with a plain old shovel all
last month. We have no frost level at all. Most strange.
Y'all must have gotten our snow out there because we haven't gotten enough
to even call it snow.
We had hard frosts in December with night time temps at 0 - 10 for 2 or 3
weeks which isn't the norm. December is usually snow which brings the temps
We've had a lot of rain compared to the last few years. But then we've been
in a drought situation. The rain we've been getting has brought us up
to"normal." We just don't generally get it all at once. The lakes are up
to normal for the first time in several years.
January was cold until the last week and into February has been somewhat
warmer. Damp but warmer. I'd rather have snow and cold!
