Weathersfield Weekly Blog, April 11

Can someone please tell me where spring is? I don't mind the snow but these temperatures are really starting to get to me. Aren't we supposed to be in the 40s and 50s by now? Shouldn't we be turning over our garden soil to plant our peas? I don't know about you but my garden still has a foot of snow on it. Please Mother Nature, I'm done with the winter of 2017-2018.
