Happy Spring!!! Oh! Happy, Happy Spring!!!!!!!

O.K. It's hard to tell in these pictures but this is the weirdest snowstorm we've ever had in Wayne County. The snow flakes are actually falling vertically. Weird huh? Usually, they fall horizontally. At least that's the way it usually works here. One day last winter Roger called home from work, He works anywhere from an hour to three hours away from home, and he asked: "how'S the weather?" . I told him it was snowing, and he asked how much snow was on the ground. With out hesitation I replied. "I'd say we have a Wayne County foot of snow out there. " He started laughing because he knew exactly what I meant. first of all. It can snow all day long here and the majority of the ground will only have, at the most, an inch of snow on it. That's not a foot you may be thinking. it isn't, but that snow has to go somewhere, and it's usually sitting in drifts of a foot or more all along the fences, or other likely drift spots. and not only that, when we do get an inch of snow, It lasts as long as any other places foot of snow. AND,It seems it never melts until June Rolls around and we are all wearing shorts and flip flops even though the temperature still only reaches Oh...... maybe 40 degrees, if we're lucky.
So, Yeah, you're looking at a Wayne county foot of snow.

Are they still turning on the irrigation the end of April?

Wayne County should be on an episode of x-files. Maybe Mulder and Sculley could figure out where all that snow is going, probably some alien grass or mutant sheep sh** is absorbing it before it can accumulate. Eerie!
