    It's going to wreak havoc on Michigander's normal winter blues. Every year we have a bit of a warm-up that gets you thinking winter is over, then BAM! another 3-4 weeks of cold and snow. Gets my wife and myself every year.

    It's been too wet to work the soil. I'm not even sure the frost is out. Then again, I don't know if it was ever in!

    Should see shanties on the Saginaw right now, instead there's walleye boats.

    The lilacs are already budding. When we have another cold spell, that'll all but eliminate any chance of flowers.

    My biggest concern is for the cherry farmers up north. Didn't they have a brutal year last year due to an early warm-up that was followed by a deep-freeze? 2 years in a row wouldn't be good.

    Our average high is 39 and the low is 20. It was near 80 today and will be for the next few days. We've had records right and left including the warmest winter on record.

    Just think, only 10K years ago the whole north-east was covered in ICE!

    It all runs in cycles, just ask any old-timer.
