SPRING HAS TO BE NEAR - With all the cold and snow in the area, it is hard to think that spring arrives in a little over two weeks. As photo above suggests, you can start seeds inside and be ready to plant outside when the warm weather arrives. Seed catalogues are arriving almost daily. This cold, prolonged weather, the deep piles of snow will one day be a memory. Remember the winter of 2014 - 2015, especially January and February 2015, sub zero weather and below freezing weather for weeks. Records kept at Erie note this February will be the coldest February since record keeping began in the 1870s at just under 13 degrees [12.9] and maybe second coldest ever. Normal February temperature is 28 degrees.
