The meteorologists missed the forecast once again. Only this time they underestimated the snow we would receive. So it snowed six inches or so on Monday night. And another eight on Wednesday night. Fortunately, Thursday brought temperatures in the 40s and the snow dropped off in big chunks as it melted from the trees. With the above-freezing temperatures the streets are fairly clear with only a few icy spots here and there. Yet lots of snow remains on the ground.
Lucy came out to join my husband and me while we shoveled our driveway yet again. She walked around in the snow. Then she shoveled the snow with her nose. And finally she ran in zoomie circles all over the place just like she did when she was a puppy. Quite a difference from her usual response to snow.
Wow! There is a lot of snow.
I think something has been here before I came.
Yippee! Watch out, Mom. Here I come.
She seemed to really enjoy the snow every time we took her outside. My husband had cleared a figure-eight path for her to use and she ran and ran around it before she remembered why she had come outside.
The snow in the yard was beautiful. And best of all, the roads are mostly clear today so we are not stuck on the mountain.
Don't think we will use these chairs for a while
This is the end of February which always gives me a lift. Just thinking about March makes it feel like spring, although we know that March often brings wintry weather.
English poet and philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge gives us the quote for this week:
"Advice is like snow---the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon and the longer it sinks into the mind."
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE.
