Normally at this time of year, the only things I'd be turning with any regularity would be a shovel full of snow and a key in an ignition. However, this year is different. How different? Consider this, yesterday's high in the mid 60s broke a record that had existed since the 1880s. And today, another record was broken when we hit 70. This is definitely not the norm for February here in NWI. As a result, I found myself giving the compost pile a few good turns. Something that would usually have been impossible in late February since most of it would have been a block of ice.
I don't know what Mother Nature has in store for us. But I'm hoping that March won't come in like the lion in winter. Sure, we're bound to get some snow between now and the first day of spring. We need some just to get back to average. Let's hope it won't all come in one day or even one weekend.
