    It's the first day of spring! Now if it would just warm up and melt the snow...

    Thanks! I'm having a barbecue bonfire outside and playing pagan folk music from Germany to celebrate spring. Happy Spring Equinox!

    Snow, I remember snow. We got dusted a few times but overall it was a very mild winter here. I thought we were going to get hammered, we are due for a "real" winter, but I was wrong!

    After the snow comes the mud, then the world gets beautiful, right?

    Yup. I'd like to skip the mud part tho, 35" of snow makes an awful lot of it. We're going to have the piles from plowing the driveway through May.

    Happy Ostara to you as well! It was 89 degrees here yesterday and likely to hit that again today. I think we just skipped winter and spring altogether and heading right into summer. I think we dipped down below 32F twice this year, for about 5 minutes apiece!

    I'd be happy with 60-65, the snow gone, and the mud drying up. :)
