Washington State overall "colder" in lower 48

Well, we finally had the first flakes of snow today.  After a dismal summer and an extended mild autumn, we were beginning to wonder what Mother Nature had in mind for the rest of winter.  Of course, the weather would turn to cold just before the Tacoma Home & Garden Show coming up in two weeks, but at least we've had a bit of luck so far.

An interesting news report on one of the Seattle Websites showed what those of us in the Pacific Northwest already knew - Last summer was COLD!  Tomatoes just sat there and barely even bloomed, but Cole crops like Kale, Cabbage and Brussels Sprouts grew sweet from the lots of even rainfall and cool temperatures.  The lower 48 states are represented on the charts, so take a look at your home state.  Here is the link to the report.
