The weather in Utah is legendary for changing at a moments notice. Ok maybe not legendary, but at least known to the public here. Give it a minute the weather will change is a mantra we live by in the spring.
So When this post was written we had just finished a day of heavy rains. The weather forecast said it was going to be partly cloudy and warmer. I washed a load of towels to hang outside on the line. Just getting ready to hang them out, and it starts raining. I am sure mother nature was just thwarting me.
I had a few choice things to say to Nature at that point. I kind of wanted to be Captain Dan in Forrest Gump screaming at the storm. But, I had kids at home.
There will be another snowstorm, that is almost guaranteed. Except it will be 80 this weekend and I have to get the lawn mower out before the jungle sets in. My Great Grandpa, who had a garden that should have been on a magazine, always said, “Don’t plant anything until after Mother’s Day.” That is sage advice here, because you will just get your tomatoes growing and it will freeze. It just does here.
I have never been disappointed with that advice, even with pressure from my wife a few times becasue the weather was nice. Didn’t plant, didn’t get frozen. So, do you all have some interesting weather thwarting stories to share with us? I would really like to hear them. You can’t beat Mother Nature completely but you may be able to slap some sense into her once in a while. Well, probably not.
Have a great Weekend.
