Mother Nature’s April Fool’s Day gag

April 1, 2012

I took this photo today, April 1, 2012.

(Apologies for the poor photo quality. The dog – aka “Spawn of Satan” – that lives in the home south of me was barkbarkbarking at me through the fence, and I wanted to get back inside ASAP.)

Yes – those are peony buds. On April 1.

The temperature today at the airport maxed out at 87 degrees Fahrenheit. On my back deck, it hit 92 degrees.

We haven’t had any precipitation since February. (Rain, please!)

The climate, she is a changing.

In 20 years, most of Nebraska has gone from “hardiness zone 4” to “hardiness zone 5.”

Hahaha, Mother Nature. Very funny.

Uh . . . Mother Nature? You’re not laughing . . .
