As I sit here in southern Arizona where the temperatures are now approaching 80 degrees, I checked back home in Minnesota and found that they are once again below freezing. That makes Arizona sound more appealing, but January was colder and wetter than normal, rather uncomfortable and not good for the citrus trees. But the rains will produce some nice desert flowers this spring. I hope that wherever you are, this unusual winter has not been too much of a burden. Anyway, spring is coming.
