Wet blanket weighing in here.

We are covered in ice and snow and the nighttime temps have been in the single digits around here for the last few nights. Not much warmer during the day.

Spring? Bah, humbug!

No signs of spring here yet. My first sign occurs on March 11th every years so I have a few more days to wait.

I have never had birds sit in the trees to see exactly where I planted my seeds...those rascals. I need to find a cute scarecrow to shooo them away!

I'm very hesitant to post this. It is warm out there today. And it has been for the last few days. The snow is melting rapidly and most of the streets are nearly clear. We're months away from planting but I think this might be the first sign that this very long winter is nearly over.

No daffodils yet but I predict that they will start showing early next week as we get into the upper 50's! Birds have been chirping for a couple weeks or so and the raccoons and groundhogs are getting out and about. The annual pre-season golf course meeting is tomorrow (which will result in nothing) but it's a VERY good sign! I may even attempt to smoke some ribs this weekend!
