This is the second part of a year-long series that will follow what we do, and what happens in our beeyard through the course of the year. Read all posts in this series here.


The Unusual Winter Continues

This winter continues to be a strange one.  As of the end of the first week of this month there is still no snow on the ground.  According to our local weather station we have had 5.5 inches of snow so far this year, which has long since melted.  The current record for the least amount of snow in our area is 13.8 inches, back in the winter of 1912-1913 (Source: National Weather Service).

So, this could be one for the record books!  I did see that they are predicting colder temperatures next week, and possibly a chance of a little snow.  Maybe this will be a return to a more “normal” winter for us.
