Is Winter the New Spring?

With the first day of winter just a few days away, you could say I was shocked yesterday when I noticed that the crocus bulbs I planted in October are starting to come to life. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised because we’ve had many days in the 50s throughout this month and only a dusting of snow.

This weather does worry me. It worries me a lot, actually.

One thing we did this weekend, was tie up our charitable giving for this year–making sure it was at least the same if not more than last year. And one of the places we decided to give to (and likely will each year from now on) is Carbonfund.org in order to offest our C02 usage.

Yes, those childhood winters with snowbanks taller than the school bus were uncomfortable, but they were also normal. Crocuses in December in New England are not normal.
