Not yet. That tantalizing thought of warmer days never materializes for us in northern New England right on the day, but hope never dies! It was a little bit of a tease, because yesterday was a bright and sunny day, and it probably hit 30F or so. But it turned much colder over night and the 25+ mph winds began to blow overnight. 10 degrees F this morning. Ah well.
As I know I have said many times before, we live and die by the weather forecast. My husband and I (plus all the farmers I know) have multiple weather sites bookmarked on our computers and iPads, plus separate weather apps, and consult them regularly. A tab on my browser is permanently set to the 10-day weather so I can click in at any moment and refresh that feed. After Tuesday it looks as though even the nights shouldn’t go much lower than 14-17F, which is a treat indeed. And the daytime temps are coming up.
So I will enjoy the daylight, if not the temperatures, but any piece of clothing that we can leave on the rack feels like a little victory over winter! I think it’s time to have a glass of wine and do some knitting.
