March Snow Over Skylands

The calendar says spring starts in just nine days, but the recent snow and nighttime temperatures below freezing in the Northeast remind us just how unpredictable Mother Nature can be.

Yesterday, I shared photos from this week's snow storm at my Bedford, New York farm. Because of the erratic weather, a lot of that snow has already melted. And temperatures today are expected to hit 43-degrees Fahrenheit before dropping to the 30s this weekend. There are similar conditions up in Seal Harbor, Maine - a day of rain followed by a blizzard that dropped more than five inches of white powder over Skylands last week. Sunny skies are expected there today before a cold front moves in tomorrow.

Cheryl DuLong, who helps me care for Skylands when I am not there, took these photos after the last snow fall. Enjoy.
