That is so wrong for you to have such a cold April. Here in Colorado it
has been unseasonably warm...60-79 degrees. But we have a lot more wind
than usual. Dries what little rain or snow we get and increases our fire

We lost our forsythia season when we wnet to -20 in January. Alo the
extremely dry winter may not have helped. Can't sell them at the garden
center if they are not blooming around town.


45 and windy
