SOLSC Day 3
February here in central PA is one for the books. It is officially the warmest February on record.We had 10 days where temps soared to 60 degrees or better. One day, the 24th, it even reached 80 degrees.
This is so unusual. Usually during this month I spend several days shoveling out the cars in my driveway. This year I did not. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining.
Usually every time I go out during the month I need my heavy coat and gloves. This year I was out in shirt sleeves.
Usually during the month I see the first signs of life from the plants around our house. The heads of the daffodils just begin poking their heads up out of the ground with the promise of bright yellow clusters to come. This year the plants are up several inches and you can see the yellowness in them.
Even the rhododendron had pronounced buds.
Even though this was not a typical February for us, I did enjoy the unusually warm temperatures. I only hope now that we don’t get a cold spell that will harm the buds.
