It’s almost 60 degrees and no wind. The calm before it all cuts loose. The weatherdude just gave us a 100% chance of a blizzard tomorrow with over 75 mph gusts. Evidently, the farther out onto the plains you go, the more snow is to be expected. So that puts us at a foot or more of wet heavy slop. We are definitely east/central Colorado. Unfortunately, because the mountains are expecting up to 2 feet, that means that very soon when spring runnoff starts we are going to have to contend with hail again. The last wind storm cost us shingles. All the other buildings have metal roofs…. just not the house. Figures.
That being said, I finished up the last of the hail guard frames for the raised beds and tried out the screens. Looks like they will work. One down and “only” 26 more to go. This is the part that pokes and scratches. I’ll just turn up the radio so no one hears my cherub like expressions and colorful chanting.
Tomorrow is a canning and weaving day intermixed with clearing the snow off of the chicken coop netting. We had it collapse once under the weight. Lesson learned.
Cherub like expressions and colorful chanting? Oh, of course. This seems like an odd time for canning, between cool and warm season vegetables.
