    if I were still working it would be tempting to call in sick with a fever today, Spring Fever.

    It certainly is a spring fever type of day here in south-est, central-est Wisconsin! It's a sunny 60 degrees.

    It's 85 here right now, bright and sunny. I just came in from working in the garden. Can you believe it's possible to work up a sweat in March? To be honest, I'm not used to that.

    It makes little difference here, still frozen solid. Tomorrow's high will be a balmy 26 degrees.

    Here's a difference.

    At 8" down in the soil and according to Washington State U, the ag sites never had any of their locations at below 30°f this winter ..!

    Lots of snow made lots of insulation. At 4', we figure it's 55° year around and 32° water from the melting snow took the frost right out of the ground. Doesn't always work that way, here. Too often, we have lots of sub-freezing weather with little or no snow cover.
