31st March 2010. Yesterday, and this is what it looks like here. Not too deep, but it's back. It's melting again but slowly and I'm wishing I had put a bet on for a white Easter. It could still happen.
I defy anyone to report a 'cold spot' anywhere within five hundred miles. Nobody could possibly tell if the temperature dropped. It's already low enough to numb exposed skin. I also defy anyone to try to convince me that the world is warming. I can't remember the last time we had a white Easter here. My clematis should be rocketing with new growth by now - it's barely formed buds. Daffodils are only now rising above the soil. I still have snowdrops!
As for investigating hauntings - not a chance. A night out in this weather and I'd be the haunting.
I think I'll put a greenhouse where that pond was. With a heater in it.
I've just realised something. I often label photos with an abbreviated date, day/month/year, two digits each. 31st March 2010 comes out as 310310. Anyone know anything about numerology? It's interesting, but far too mathematical for me.
