Molehills from Mountains

That’s just what we’ve got…well, figuratively speaking.  Fifties and even sixties are in our forecast…it’s very windy but it feels great!  The extreme weather has chewed up our roads…terrible potholes everywhere.  Most of the snow is gone or in massive retreat nowDSC03183.  I’m very glad to see it but it’s not all that pretty to look atDSC03184.  Still it gives me hope…spring is comingDSC03185.  Some of the remaining snow reminds me of the ice used to make snow conesDSC03186.  If the sixties truly arrive it’s goodbye to the snowDSC03187.  I’ll not shed a tear over that but I do wish it would green up someDSC03188.  For now I take comfort in the longer daysDSC03189.  Examining the buds is kind of fun though all but one today was tightly closedDSC03191.  The one open bud is a sign of spring and hope if I ever saw itDSC03190!  Be of good cheer!

  2. I am glad that spring is making it your way my friend, I know you've been eagerly anticipating it! And the potholes have been very bad here as well. Tearing my car up!

    1. I guess they pretty much exhausted our plowing budget too which makes me wonder how much road repair will get done...hopefully it's two separate budgets. You're right though, through it all I am happy to see warmer days.
