An old joke goes that if you don’t like the West Virginia weather all you need to do wait a few minutes and it will change. Almost as soon as the Forsythia bloomed in Smithers the bitter cold settled. The waterfall at the old wall has all but stopped flowing. I’ve always thought that icicles look like teeth. In my imagination the waterfall becomes the very bite of winter itself. However, this is normal. This time of year we have a series of cold and warm weather. And it’s a good thing too. The frost heave is how nature sews the seeds of a lot of the wild plants. The cold makes the water in the soil expand and stand up then as it thaws it covers the seed. This action also opens the protective cover of some seed allowing germination to take place in next few weeks. By late March ( At my latitude ) most of the bitter cold will be gone and we typically have a light dusting of snow near the Easter holiday. I haven’t really looked into it but my gut feeling is that the longer days excite the jet stream in the upper atmosphere and the cold Arctic air is pulled South this time of year.
For now I’ll just bundle up in jacket and wait until old man winter loses his teeth and retreats back to the North.
