Think I am just thinking.

Words are but thoughts made visible.

When does spring begin?

Well, I was thinking that Spring was almost here, but Nature had other things in mind. We had showers and flowers and warmer weather on our radar. Mother nature on the other hand had snow, snow and just for good measures, a bit more snow on her’s. So, it looks as though March will go out as a Lion.
But, the good news is that we can be assured that it will not last for long, for Spring has been showing sings of kicking into high gear. The week, it was winter who got to do the kicking.
A couple more weeks and I will no longer need my vitamine “D” supliments!

It’s still Winter in the Heartland!

Well this weekend proved once again that it is still winter in the Heartland!  We received a fresh 5 inches of snow which coated the ground in a beautiful white glimering and sparkling rug of frozen delight.  Thanks to a few nice warm (around 50deg F) days, the cement had just enough residue latent heat to keep the snows underbelly soft and wet.  This made for heavy lifting in terms of shoveling off the driveway and sidewalks, but Saturday morning was bright and sunny enough that shoving in sunglasses made the job much more easy on the eyes.

   For those who failed to shovel there snow laddened property, the continued temperature drop in the afternoon and continued on Sunday, proved to them on a more perminate basis that winter has not left, in that what was not shoveled, will remain as frozen ice below the otherwise fluffy appearance of what awaits them.  For once it was a good thing I did not put off until the next day what I normally would have.

Winter snow in February in the Heartland.
