The Pobbles are cold! Normally when March arrives the Pobbles are planning their gardens and are beginning to get excited about enjoying other outdoor activities. This year on the first day of March the Pobbles are busy sweeping more snow off of the Pobble Path!
“How long will this winter last?!” a frustrated Percy Pobble finally shouts! He loves winter, but at some point you can get too much of a good thing.
Mr. Pobble Topper overhears Percy and smiles. “Percy, we can’t change the weather so we will just have to make the best of it.” Percy doesn’t look convinced so Mr. Pobble Topper continues. “Remember last year when the weather was so dry and the river that runs along our path almost went completely dry? All of this snow is just what we need to make sure we have plenty of water for our garden this year.” Percy had not thought about that. “It was awfully dry last year. Our tomatoes were small and I love a big juicy tomato. If all of this snow means I can have a delicious tomato on my sandwiches this summer then I guess it isn’t so bad.”
Mr. Pobble Topper said, “That’s right! Think of the big red tomatoes, the sweet strawberries, the juicy corn on the cob, and all of the other wonderful food we will grow. Thanks to the all of the water this snow will give us later this year we are sure to have a bountiful garden!” Percy still wasn’t happy it was so cold, but at least now he understood how all of this snow would help the Pobbles, and after all it’s March so he is sure the cold weather won’t last too much longer.
