We have been out of school so long that my mind and routine are severely confused. I had to tell myself this morning “It’s not Monday”. So we will have a day of Valentine crafts and cards and get everything ready for Monday’s party. Then, by the looks of the weather report, we can get back to business as usual for a few days!
Maybe this is winter’s last hoorah. We’ve broken records. We’ve made the national news. Now let’s just drift right into the early spring promised by the groundhog and go unnoticed for a few months.
I wandered out and took a few photos of the melting snow yesterday. I have never quite understood the term “dry powder” until yesterday. Last week the porch was a sloppy wet mess and I needed both the shovel and broom and some snow melt to clean it. Yesterday I swept off piles of snow as easily as sweeping dirt, and there wasn’t a wet spot anywhere on the porch. Fascinating!
I guess it was the dry light weight that made the snow so unevenly distributed in the yard. It was only about an inch deep in the path of some of the wind currents and piled in huge drifts in other spots. And my truck was completely clean and dry just an hour after the sun came out.
I’m sure many of you have seen some of the funny snow pictures making the rounds. People can get very creative with “snowmen”. Nice to see that cabin fever has its benefits.
I managed to catch a mid-air dance between two vultures. They are ugly as sin, but certainly graceful. And I include this rather fuzzy photo of the ducks today because I want you to pay close attention to the fact that there are shadows beneath them. Yes, they are sitting on ice!
So, no more ice, snow, cold or whining. We are moving into spring and warm temperatures and green grass. If I’m wrong…well.
Have a great day!
