Spoke too soon...

Well I did it again, I talked about the nice weather with 800 temperatures in February and now it is mid- March with 400 and 500 temperatures.  The Azalea blooms may not survive the next few weeks.  We even had ‘snow’ one morning!  We did not receive much accumulation but it sure was nice to see the big flakes falling.
