Spring has not sprung
It may have been the first day of spring yesterday but we still seem to be in the grip of winter. Today, we have managed to escape the snow that has hit other parts of the country and we have no rain either. But the wind is intensely cold and I am not entirely confident that we will be free of snow by the end of the day. Whilst January and February were relatively dry compared with the end months of 2012, March was wetter. We started the month with the ground beginning to drain after the downpours of 2012. In March it went into reverse. We have been plodding around in deep mud over the past week. After the disastrous weather of 2012, we need spring to make an appearance. At the moment, we are still waiting.
