Rain was expected today, but it never materialized, and I suspect that Sunday's predicted rain is also likely to be a bust. The season has been so wet that we won't miss this storm, as long as we get some later. It's much to early in the year to start irrigating, especially since water rates have gone way up, and I certainly don't want the plants to start dying off. Naturally I'm hoping for a wet spring, so I can put off irrigating as long as possible.
Right now the forecast is predicting a gradual warming trend starting Tuesday, with highs getting into the mid-sixties by next weekend. That will be nice for a change, though I'm also hoping that it doesn't get too hot too early in the year. A few days in the seventies won't be bad in March and April, and would help keep the utility bills down, but I'd just as soon have the eighties wait until June to show up. Especially considering all that snow that's piled up in the mountains. Don't want that melting too fast.
It's likely that I'll go to sleep fairly early tonight, since I only got about four hours last night and woke up not long after dawn today. I'm glad the shopping is out of the way. I won't have to worry about my weekend schedule. Now if I could just get the nephew to finish fixing the kitchen faucet so I won't have that inconvenience going on. All the stuff that goes under the sink is still sitting out, and I really want that space back. Kids these days. Especially the ones in their fifties.
