The weather has turned warmer but snow is not yet out of the forecast. Nights can be frozen and sometimes even daytime highs may not reach 32 degrees, but the snow is melting.It seems as if we have lost two feet of snow in the deepest places. Many tree lines and groves hold three or more feet of snow yet. The shrubs that hold this snow will be pushed down and may not come up again. Our fields have lost most of their snow and now we have puddles in all of the low places. Hopefully this will soak in and become water for our crops, but so far it is being held in place by the frozen ground. Rivers and creeks are up with flowing water and many a waterway has funneled water down to area lakes.
Our snow pack has shrunk significantly, but there is much more that needs to melt. We have about a month before we head to the field, hopefully the snow will be gone by then.
