Snow is almost starting to seem commonplace here in Port Townsend. Which basically means it fell, it stuck and it stayed for more then a day. Yay!
It started falling early Monday morning. My cat, Kitty Meow, woke me up at three in the morning for what I’m assuming was a bathroom emergency. She’s getting old so we don’t question her random demands or odd hours. I got up and sure enough she headed to the back door and waited for me to catch up. Yes, I’m slower than an old cat. I opened the door for her and we were greeted by a white fluffy world. Kitty Meow got as far as the middle of the porch, but then decided she wasn’t impressed and turned around to come back in. I, on the other hand, was excited and had difficulty getting back to sleep. Thanks, Kitty Meow!
Snow is a welcome sight for gardeners and farmers alike. Not only is it beautiful but, it adds fertility to your soil.
In northern climates, where the growing season is short, this snowfall plays a huge part in the rapid growth of plants.
