'Weather' I Like It, or Not ...

2 p.m. - 69 degrees and gathering clouds

Posted by Picasa

...the anticipated cold front is beginning its move into Arkansas.  At church time this morning, there was hardly a cloud in the sky.  By mid-afternoon, it was hard to find a shard of blue. 

In a few days, northern Arkansas is supposed to have snow, and southern Arkansas is supposed to receive heavy rain -- supposed being the operative word.  Weather forecasting being what it is, we shall see what we shall see.  I just hope that the folk in central Arkansas will not have to (1) get out the snow shovels and tire chains or (2) row, row, row our boats.  Geographically placed as we are between south and north we're likely to have ice -- if anything.

If it's going to get really cold again, I'm glad I haven't yet cleaned away the leaves that have blown into my flower beds.  This latest warm spell has encouraged my spring bulbs to send up green shoots. I'd hate for them to freeze.

While I wait to see what's going to happen to the weather, I'll be reading and napping, not necessarily in that order.

Tomorrow is also a day.

It's been a crazy weather year, that's for sure!
I like your schedule...or lack thereof, Miss Pat!

I am in the "supposed to snow" area and hoping it does but not counting on it.
Really hope you don't get ice of any sort.
We will see.

It's getting colder and colder here at the moment. I hope you're not hit too hard by anything. Stay warm and dry!

I'm getting ready to go out and cover the sensitive plants. I have lots of empty pots that I'm going to use. The blankie is out and the book ... ready!

We had a very mild weekend here in Tennessee, and I saw quite a few daffodils pushing up through the soil. Like you, I worry about what is going to happen to them over the next few weeks. I hope your weather doesn't get too bad.

Weather forecasts over here aren't reliable at all either. We were supposed to have sunshine in the weekend. The only thing we got was a thick fog and freezing cold. Ah well, weather happens ;-) Hope yours isn't too bad.
