Joomla! Developer - Winter 2015

We have been very lucky so far this winter.   Here it is the end of January and we are anticipating our first real snowfall on Jan. 31st.   So we can say welcome to February with a fresh coating of snow.

In case you are wondering why so little snow so far it is because I purchased a new more powerful snow blower.   And as it usually happens that creates the aura of no or little need for it in the short term.  Perhaps now the situation will change and I can finally use my new snow blower for what is is intended.  Actually, I am looking forward to see how it performs.

The long term forecast for this winter is that we will get some snow in February and then it basically stops for the winter with no significant precipitation until July.  If this is true we are in real trouble because the farmers depend on the rain to water their crops.   If we get little rain that can really reduce the yield from the crops.  And that means higher prices on food and possible shortages.

So I am going to try to stock up on staples and frozen foods to try to prepare for a possible dry spring and summer.   I just hope that the rain in July is not a major event that will drown the food crops.   Lets pray it all works out. 

Our lives are so very dependent on the supply of food to the markets.  I hate to think of what would happen if the supply dries up even for the short term.  I will try to be patient and see how it all works out.  

In my next entry I will follow up on the month of February and what happened in north east Illinois for the month.  Stay tuned.
