Nothing false in my neck of the woods, we are always expectant but never get too antsie till mid April. Don’t be fooled by the clear, blue sky; it was 10 below yesterday.
i take that first picture of the greenhouse / garden on Feb 6th (my birthday) each year as a reference to past years snow fall. Don’t be misled by how little we currently have either, between now and late April it can really pile up.
this year i added the tree picture to the mix and by repeating that shot in March, April and May i’ll get a bit of a perspective of the solar declination of the sun as our day lengthen rapidly now. By June the sun will be above that cottonwood and pretty much just travels in a circle above us, covering a roughly 270 degree path.
It seems that those clear, sunny winter days are always the coldest.Nothing false in my neck of the woods, we are always expectant but never get too antsie till mid April. Don’t be fooled by the clear, blue sky; it was 10 below yesterday.
Wow, the daytime high in Montana is about equal to my nighttime low. Guess that moves it way down on my "wish I was there" list.If things are too tough at home, and if it might help, we can look at Cut Bank Montana.

We are headed to single digitS'. It wasn't quite that cold yet but I was out just before noon, running several errands. The wind chill was 11°f. Too much of a breeze!
