70 Degrees One Day; Three Inches of Snow the Next

The urge to get planting is strong, but winter just won't let go

It hit 70 degrees in Wichita on Monday and the urge to get out the shovel and dig in the dirt and plant something was almost too strong to resist -- until I saw the weather forecast.

True to the warning, today is cloudy and much, much colder and the western third of the state is being hit with snow. Again.

I'd still like to be out there getting garden tubs ready, but something about any icy wind just takes the fun out of spring. Will winter EVER be over?
