Running late again, as I continue to find disagreements with my computer (he doesn't want to rise and shine and open the browser; I want a more responsive relationship).

There is very little good to report today, though, with conditions more like late March than mid February.

It is warm. Warmer than yesterday. Sprinkles of rain are falling. We have a pretty steady southwest wind that is eating up the snowpack again. The only positive: the windows that I failed to protect with a few horizontal boards at the beginning of the season are almost free of snow (they were covered after the recent deep falls). Not a drop of diesel was expended in this effort. There is the chance of snow in the coming days, though, so the boards will be put in place this afternoon. We never got around to putting them in, because we never had the November snow that sneaks up on us and reminds us of all the pre-snow preparations we have to get done. (The hydrangeas also did not get bound up this year, so they may be a bit flat come the real spring. Two weeks from now?).

But before that, the freezing level will very shortly plunge from the current 3000 meters to 0 by Tuesday. Yes, this is a season to remember, because everything is new. And weird.
