We have had warm winters before but I don’t remember Spring ever starting in early February, do you? That’s what happened this year. But who can complain about an extra 6 weeks of spring-like weather? We in southeast Texas live for the fall, winter and spring – it reminds us to not complain about hot, humid summers because we are grateful for the other nine months of our calendar. Take complaining out of our vocabulary and substitute gratitude instead – we will all live longer and happier. Welcome to our beautiful state of Texas.
But there are implications to this change in weather patterns. For the cattle, pigs, chicken and hens, it’s all to the good. But for the peaches, it’s pretty darned perplexing.
