Thanks for the snow will come in the spring
The Kansas City Star
Today for the first time in what seems like a week, people didn’t have to shovel mountains of snow in the Kansas City area or slip and slide their way into work.
Phew! But that hasn’t stopped a lot of people from rightfully cursing the snow. We will be grateful for it in the spring when our lawns come up lush and beautiful and apple and other fruit trees begin to look promising.
The water from this winter’s precipitation helps city-dwellers as much as winter wheat growers in Kansas. The drought has been hard on all agriculture, and we remain at the weather’s mercy.
Perennials might not be as well off. The warm weather before the snow caused some flowers to make an early appearance.
The snow and freezing temperatures may have zapped them. They’ll get another try next year.
