Spring in the middle of winter

We have been having a very mild winter here in Northern California. The end of 2012 brought lots of rain actually some flooding with record setting snow fall (for time of year) like 162% of normal. Then a warm dry beginning of 2013. Mother Nature has a wicked sense of humor, The trees are in bloom and it looks like spring, but I know when I get ready to shear in mid March she’ll change her mind and send lots of rain.
