This winter has been crazy, with some VERY cold days, and some VERY warm days, and overall it has been very mild. Not much snow to speak of, and when it did snow it would melt away quickly. Spring came early.
Saint Patrick’s Day was rainy and gloomy, which was kind of perfect because it felt like what I imagine Ireland to be like at times. We celebrated with corned beef and hash (just the hash for me), green protein shakes, and of course some fun gold coin chocolates! Not to mention really fun shamrock straws for rootbeer floats. We also made Irish soda bread (we like this recipe from Allrecipes.com), but this year we left out the raisins since I don’t like them.
And then came the snow, overnight even! About 4 inches in our yard, but over 37 inches at the nearest ski resort. This weekend it is supposed to get up to the 70F mark. I hope that’s true, not only do I have a lot of things to do in the garden, but it is also the Festival of Colors (Holi), which I have always wanted to attend.
What has it been like in your part of the world?
