It has been extremely cold (for May) here recently, the result of a polar vortex which has brought frigid arctic air down as far as the Great Lakes region. Today's temperature has barely budged above 0C and there have been flurries of snow pellets off and on all day. Last night has supposedly set a record for the coldest May 8 in a couple of decades. I will have to check the weather report in tomorrow's newspaper.
Just short walks for me the last couple of days due to the cold wind. I am just glad I haven't planted any flowers or vegetables yet. I did work in the garden yesterday but today was just too chilly! Everything that has come up so far seems to be surviving and it should be slightly warmer tomorrow. Now I'm off to cozy up close to the fire with my book!
