Still Chilly

It was cold and windy last Thursday night, last night’s low was 38 and for the next few days at least the forecast lows will be in the 40s.  It’s almost May.  I’m just shaking my head and wondering if the corn will germinate.  But I expect the day will soon arrive, in the summer heat, when I’ll miss these chilly spring days. 

Last week I shut down our wood boiler.  We had record heat (90 degrees) and it seemed foolish to keep burning wood.  We have backup gas heat, but we’ve been managing without it.  I wonder what other weather surprises this year has in store for us.

Cherie started our fireplace, just to take some of the chill out of the air.  Our cat Dixie normally stays close to the heat ducts during the winter.  Those weren’t helping her so she camped out at the fireplace.


Good idea.

    Thanks for your visit and comment. We switched all our heating off last week but I am just about to turn it all back on again!! Fed up with this weather now and the vegetable garden is as well. Have a great weekend. Diane

    My goodness! I didn’t know you had a cat named Dixie. And I had to laugh – with my Dixie, it’s all about her comfort, too.
