Disappearing Post

My apologies for posting something last night and then whisking it down this morning. It had song lyrics (the entire song) and I was afraid I was stepping on some copyright issues, so I took it down.

While I'm here, might as well spout off a bit. It snowed last night, then again today. There's nothing on the ground right now. It all melted when it got daylight. But the temperature fell below freezing last night, and it's supposed to be even colder tonight. These crazy climate changes are playing ruin with everything that grows in this region for the past several years. Every year, the temperatures get into the 70's and sometimes even the 80's in March, tricking everything in nature to think it's summertime and forcing it to grow. Then, an April freeze comes along and all the unsuspecting, beautiful plants and flowers, even small trees, get frozen where they stand. It's very discouraging, not to mention heartbreaking to watch the plants and flowers get killed year after year.

I know we're not supposed to complain about Mother Nature, but her little surprises are becoming habit. Later on, we'll probably have another drought. It's getting so we can't even grow any decent vegetables here in farm country.

I'll stop griping now because it never helps a thing. I'm going back to writing. Here's hoping the rest of the week has a better outlook.

  1. Thanks for the explanation of the disappearing post, Devon. I was going to comment on it. Maybe you'll put up something similar another day and I'll remember my comment.

    As to the weather, I find it very troubling. I'm tired of having "damaging winds" and "large hail" in the forecast. And now, yes, growing quite weary of "freeze warning."

  2. I don't know about you guys, but we had white out conditions up here. It would cover the ground, then within just a few minutes it was all gone and the roads were just wet.
    It's no wonder everybody's sick around here.

  3. Morning, ladies! I'm looking forward to an improvement in the weather today, and hoping my plants outside haven't suffered too much.

    Sorry again for the deleted post. I'll put that one up again, with some changes, in a couple of days.

    Hope you have a terific day! :o)
