It's Spring, winter coats in the morning, wish you had a tank top in the afternoon.

I was thinking the same thing, except a little higher up the body. That's how high our 18" of snow measured in the places Himself had to plow through drifts. About 3 feet of snow vs a 6' 2" guy.

Andy!

No one has ever accused me of being "nice" when it comes to manners...

Same here. Another 8" or more of snow tonight through Thursday morning. On top of the 2 feet of the compacted, frozen solid snow leftover from the last 3 storms.

Just reading about all the snow some of you are getting, makes me cold. brrrr....

It's definitely spring here. The rosebushes have tons of those new little reddish leaves, and the trees are all budding out. I love spring.

HA!
I have no clue as to why this photo came out sideways
on DC.

Just to commiserate... here in Cowboyville at just about
mile high elevations ... we're expecting some snow as well,
nothing like you folks along the Eastern portion of the US,
but...
I spotted the first blossom on our Flowering Plum tree that
has been replaced TWICE now and I thought ...
Aaaahhhh, here we go. Thank you to the powers that
be for at least giving us a glimmer.
Of course, our overnight lows are still at freezing
and hard freeze, but, it's something anyways and I'll
take it.
I'm tired of the cold, windy, wet days .......

HAWAII HERE WE COME!!!
