“A ‘Spring Black Friday’? I don’t think so.”
A certain home improvement chain has declared this weekend as “Spring Black Friday”. In other words, a weekend gardening sale. They forgot to ask a particular black cat about declaring a Black Cat Friday, being she’s the only black cat in the world.
After this morning’s round of snow, ice pellets, sleet, and slush, accompanied by lightning and thunder, outdoor gardening is not quite advisable in Colorado just yet. Though sunny skies have returned this afternoon, melting all the snow ice away, the ice assault was Mother Nature’s reminder on becoming too anxious about planting something outdoors. If this morning’s weather happened, say six weeks ago, we would be under a few inches of ice.
