The weather, like my family members (including myself), does not respond to criticism.

Last Friday’s snowfall was beyond beautiful. The trees were covered and all was quiet at first light.

It was so warm last weekend. I did not start a fire in the wood stove.

I stepped into the memory bank but could not find a year in the recent past when we had a white Christmas.

After last week's lovely weather, it was a rude awakening on Monday morning.

I had a large hoop house in which I stored garden-related items: tools, fertilizers, potting soil, stakes and ornamental pots.
