Come on Spring
Word on the street is we aren’t experiencing the lowest average temperature on record for April. Meteorologist, Scott Sistek says April 1970 was colder; fortunately, the heat wave on Saturday messed up all chances of breaking the record. Nineteen-seventy can keep its cold record; I will take more heat waves.
I know it’s early, but, come on, this is winter weather—still! I think I need to ask Sistek to call for an intervention, or I’m going to start making plant sacrifices to the heat gods. I wonder if they would prefer spinach to tomatoes. It’s definitely cool season crop weather, and if the gods don’t start kicking up the heat, there will be no tomatoes to sacrifice!
Come on Spring; spring already!
Scott was gracious enough to give a hilarious reply:
Definitely spinach... In checking the records, the last time we sacrificed a tomato was 1970. :)
