Freezing Time

We have reached that time of year that the average maximum has reached 32 degrees or will this week reach 32 degrees depending on your location.  Of course an average does not mean you will nor should you expect a temperature that warm as in our climate the averages are just the average of extremes.  Yet, it is a milestone each spring that our melting season has begun.  Of course with our warm February our melting season started early, then ended and will begin again, but most years, it is about this time of year when we start losing the snow pack on our way to spring and eventually the planting season.  Our average lows don’t reach 32 degrees until well into April.
