I wonder what's going to happen next?
April is over and it has been a pretty dry month. Usually April showers bring May flowers but there were not a lot of April showers.
It makes me wonder what kind of summer we're in for.
Maybe I'll ask a couple of Dutchmen. Those Amish farmers are generally pretty good with the weather. A couple of years ago I asked one and he was spot on.
He said the winter wasn't hard enough to kill a lot of burrowed insects and we'd likely have a pretty buggy summer. Boy, was he right!
I wrote this last May and never posted it.
It's now mid-October and I think that the next chance I have a couple of hours off around dinnertime I'm going to drive up north and drop in on a couple of Dutchmen I know. I'll ask them what kind of winter we're in for.
I don't think the Amish have special skills in predicting the weather but nobody else, does, either. Their guess is probably just as good as anyone else's.
It's just a sneaky excuse to go north and see the sights and smell the air.
