My wife has started planting seeds in the greenhouse, inspired by all the s
eed catalogues we've been getting recently. She likes to work out there whe
n it's bitter winter outside. The people at Lowe's probably thought we were
crazy buying potting soil in this weather.
We're having a horrible cold spell here in Maryland. Low of 10 tonight, 6 F
riday night and 5 Saturday night. Single digits are very unusual here. Then
it gets back to normal January Maryland temperatures for a week or so; ove
rnight lows in the 20's, daytime highs in the 30's and low 40's.
Not much snow, just an inch or so this morning from the winter storm that d
isabled much of the Atlantic coast. I was afraid of a major dump of snow as
the backhoe doesn't feel like starting in the cold.
It's been too cold for the sheep's' water heater to keep up so I have to go
out in the morning with a hatchet to break the ice and bring a pail of hot
water to top it off.
