goodbye February Hello! March.

 
Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fair well to February!!!
February 2013 average temp 21.9F
February 2014 average temp 13.9F
 
I sorta had a clue it was colder than normal when the windows had frost on them and the doors froze open and /or shut depending on their own whims.  And when there was always a chill around the edges and sometimes to the core no matter how well the fire in the stoker was going.  Then there was the time the laundry froze to the dryer drum, and the cans of soda froze.  there was a thaw, for about 36 hours the temperature surged upward to near normal.  I may say it laughingly, but when you think 20 degrees is a heatwave, the other days must be pretty cold.
Still all of that running up and down the steps to keep the fire going made the longest days of the shortest month go pretty fast.  and it was pure joy to hibernate under a stack of blankets.
Can't say as much for having the bare skin of my hand freeze to doorhandles, winds that took my breath away, and going days on end not feeling warm enough. 
 
HELLO, MARCH!
Daylight Savings time!
The average temperature slowly rise.
Kite flying in the fields!  Even though they are under a foot of snow now.
And like the New Year this month began with a new Moon.  The New Sap moon, maple sugaring  begins, or if you prefer the New Seed Moon, because it's time to order your seeds.
