  1. We decided to go with planter boxes so they can be brought in and out easily enough if necessary. We're going to do some hanging planters too, keeps the tomatoes away from the dogs and bugs.

    Again, another time I wish I had kept records. I have way more days with lows below 32 than 12 this month. It's almost always colder here than KPOU.
  3. Last morning below freezing? I want to get some of the veggie plants outside.

    Low 60's here but wind sheltered in the sun is well over 70. Nice day

    With so many fantastic winters over the last 20 years we also had the 3 "worst". Feast or famine...

    This low humidity is doing wonders for drying things up. The woods were beautiful and the soft surface ought to be dry and firm after one more day like today.
  7. It was pretty cool to get so many types of precip and thunder and sun all in the same day but I much prefer what we've got (so far) today.

    Ice pellets/sleet/snow falling sideways at 38*. Ahh springtime
  9. Around 4:30 I looked over and said to my wife look at that it looks convective and the temp was dropping. A few minutes later there were a few claps of thunder and it started pounding down ice pellets. Now it's a mix of sleet and snow with pellets mixed in. What a wonderful spring afternoon
  10. I was thinking the same thing but also have the far western Berks on my radar because the altitude is that much better. Lets go throw snowballs at each other

    They started blooming here last Friday and are at nearly full color here on my hill even though we had .3" of snow on the ground this morning and 2 nights below freezing since they first popped. I don't think of myself as far north and there is snow and frozen precip in my forecast for tomorrow night. Yuck
  12. No accumulations yet this month? I've had one significant and three that don't really count but they happened, as well as a half dozen or more days with no accumulation but it snowed. I'm definitely over it I was traveling around central CT yesterday and pretty much anything above about 400 feet had snow on the ground from the day before. While we got almost entirely rain here they started the day with 3-5" of snow before changing to rain. Even the places that got an inch or more of rain still had snow in shaded areas and big plow piles in lots and along main roads. That must have been some dense stuff to last through that torrential rain later in the day. Above ~800 feet there was still significant snowcover in the woods on all but the most exposed southerly faces where it was melting off in the afternoon sun and tropical type rainshowers that were ongoing.
  13. Better than a coating, more like .3", and on pretty much everything. Julian I've actually been thinking that, even mentioned a few times how many days of frozen precip we've had this month. It didn't really phase me when I lived in VT or CO but I sure don't expect it here. The new climate regime is interesting to watch that's for sure.

    It's snowing moderately here and even starting to stick to the pavement.
