Still Here

Hello! It has been a longtime but I still do not have a new laptop but will be getting one soon. Not much has happened and this seems to be my downtime regardless of having a laptop or not. It has been a very cold and snowy winter here in Lexington this winter season. It has been cold and snowy since Black Friday when we recieved our first snowfall for the winter season. I am a snow lover and still would love a huge snowstorm here in Lexington but the cold has been making me want spring more and more everyday. I hate that it can be 30f and we get a nice snowfall and then the days to weeks after it we barely hit 20f if we do. I have enjoyed the constant snow cover and snow falling this season. Our coldest tempetures have been:

12/8….. 8f

12/9….. 9f

12/14… 5f

12/15… 2f*

12/19… 2f*

1/8……. 9f

1/9……. 3f

*= The coldest low of this winter season.

Winter started so quickly and between life and everything I wasn’t able to protect anything and that includes even giving a winter mulching to things. I used the Banana Tree’s leaves on themselves and some other stuff but that was it. This winter will defintely be a test for them to go through.

Number of highs since November 1 that have been at or below freezing: 19

I am actually surprised myself after looking at it because that isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It seems more like 30 days so I will take and accept 19 days.

Anyway, here are some pictures that were taken on December 4. We had recieved 4.50″ of fresh powder!

I will try and get on here more often it just depends on when I can until I get my own laptop again.

      Very! It is suppose to get colder and I am not looking forward to that. I just hope before we get to those temps we get a snowcover to insulate the plants and the ground cause they are talking negatives.
