The ice thickness on our area lakes is about half of the normal. With the usual thickness being three feet, this year it is about a foot and a half. Warm weather last week has served to begin deterioration of the ice. Yet, March looms ahead; always a wild card in the weather department. It can turn on us quickly.
The greenhouses are green and filling with plants; on schedule according to ‘normal.’ Maybe some year we will have a ‘normal’ spring. Now we adjust on the fly to get everything to come out right for this season.
