Missouri has the weirdest weather. I mean seriously. Here is the weather for the PAST week:
This past Monday and Tuesday, January 28 and 29, the temperature was in the 70s. Monday was simply gorgeous. Tuesday we had about two inches of rain. There were strong winds and thunder and lightning.
On Wednesday the 30th, it turned colder, highs in the 30s and we had snow flurries.
Yesterday, the 31st, it was COLD. Highs in the 20s with a few snow flurries.
This morning it is 9 degrees and sunny, headed for a high of 30.
By next week it is supposed to be back in the 50s.
I mean, seriously. Is it winter, or spring???
Only in Missouri can you expect this type of crazy weather. Extreme swings in temperature are the norm.
Last summer we had a drought. We have never recovered. Oh, the grass is green in the yard so people think the drought is over. It isn't. Our ponds and creeks are as low as I've seen them. And while I am so thankful for the two inches of rain we got earlier this week, we are still several inches below normal.
So we're praying for a warm, very WET spring here in Missouri.
And just to keep the facts and figures coming . . . . gasoline is $3.28 per gallon, up from $2.92 at election time . . . . .
Have a BLESSED DAY!!!!!
