Funny, just the day before the "blizzard" came, and shook our souls, my yard was inundated with hundreds of hoppers. It was uncomfortable for my Lab " Pearl " to walk through the barrage of hard shelled jumping bugs, hitting her face and under belly with every step.What was suppose to be the" plague" we heard about at the start of the season, did happen , it just came late . The Farmers must have felt a sigh of relief when the rains started in late May, keeping the numbers of grass chewing bugs to a minimum. Without all the moisture throughout the summer, it well may have been a disaster for all the crops.
The "blizzard" did last until the beginning of December, now we are experiencing what is know as the "Chinook". In the Northern Rockies we get warming trends that usually follow very extreme weather patterns, and, like this Chinook, melt away most of the snow, warming to the 50* and sometimes even warmer.
That brings us up to date, December 12th 2010, another storm is on it's way, Winter is knocking at the door....
