Good Day,

While I do have some sympathy for those small businesses that rely on Winter activities like skiing, ice fishing and snowmobilers... I must say I have enjoyed this so called Winter. I have been able to ride my bike a lot which normally I can't. Even today the neighborhood kids were outside playing basketball after school!

Yes this weather has been bad for the winter economy, but better for the heat bills. Almost time to break out the motorcycle.

The mosquitoes are coming out already. That's good. Maybe they'll hatch out early and then get killed off when it freezes again. That could mean less mosquitoes when spring really gets here...theoretically anyway.

Hope you don't lose any fruit crops.....seem to remember around Michigan losing a whole years cherry production, from too warm too early, then a big freeze....

Yes, that is a concern. Trees are already starting to bud. We know we aren't finished with winter yet. There WILL be more freezing weather. If the fruit buds are too far along, it could mean trouble...probably more in southern Michigan than up north.

....We have had an odd winter, also....peculiar situation with the impatians, as they are one of the most popular bedding flowers down here, in cooler weather....well, this year, they had too much heat and grew to long and leggy, way too fast...then we had huge whitefly infestations, due to the heat.....But, there is some good news too...this years florida tangerine crop was tremendous....i can go thru a bag of them in less than a week....if you see them at the store, give them a try....

There many cherries around here anymore, what with government contraception and all.
