  1. Folk lore in Texas says that if it rains on Easter Sunday, it will rain for the next 7 Sundays. We are all praying for that one to prove true this year! :-) We need the rain to break out of this drought.

  2. Would this cold snap count as a “dogwood winter” this year? Or do our dogwoods need to be in full bloom while we have snow covered on them for it to count? They are calling for 2-4 inches of snow here in Richmond, Va… so our dogwood trees will be covered in snow but nothing is blooming yet. It looks like its the heart of winter rather than late March. No easter lillies for us :(

  3. I’ve been waiting for a snow pack to protect against another hot dry summer growing season, so as inconvenient as it may seem, snow is just what we need

  4. We are praying for moisture over the Easter weekend or any weekend for that, we are 3+ inches below 2012 and that was one of the worst drought years in 10 years, we hope to break that or we will be headed for the worst drought in 50+ years.

  5. I’m hoping the same thing. It is -15 windchill today in MN.

  6. Enough already! My only hope is that this long winter creates a fruitful growing season.
