We’ll take the snow for now.  I’m still holding the rain dance in reserve though.

Way to Hot January 20, 2009

While my heating bill may be loving, I’m really starting to worry about my gardens.  The gardens should be covered in snow or at least getting a heavy frost each morning and that just isn’t happening.

Besides the really warm weather we’ve been having high winds which just dry things out that much more.

I’m hoping it gets a lot wetter soon.  If it doesn’t I may have to get out the water hose.

The wind howled all day today.  There was snow earlier, making more mud for Bubba track inside.  The skies are a slate gray with just a touch of red as the sun sinks down below the horizon.  Tonight will not be a good time for man or beast outside.  Our beautiful fall has come to an end.

The house has been cool all day, but I refuse to touch the thermostat.  I’ll either wrap in a blanket or work on my afghan.  Afghan’s make a good winter project.

The electric heater has ran almost non-stop in the sun room.  I don’t like using it, it takes so much power.  But there is no other heat source in there and without it most of the plants won’t survive the cold.  It also drys the air out.  It seems like I’m out there every few hours giving everything a good douse of water.  But I can’t think of a better way for the plants to stay warm and I’m not willing to let them die.
