Countdown To Spring

My weekend consisted of cold, windy, and snowy weather.
Yet...I went hiking with hopes for spring.
The countdown begins...


If there comes a little thaw,
Still the air is chill and raw,
Here and there a patch of snow,


Dirtier than the ground below,
Dribbles down a marshy flood;
Ankle-deep you stick in mud


In the meadows while you sing,
"This is Spring".

How nice that you got out! There really is light at the end of the tunnel. It's March!

We have had the weirdest weather the past week. Other parts of Massachusetts have had coastal flooding, roofs ripped off and snow and in my area, nothing. No snow on the ground! NYC got almost 2 feet. Go figure.

I am so ready for Spring and here we haven't had a quarter of the nasty weather that the rest of the US gets.

I'm ready for spring!!! Some of the snow started to melt, and mud is appearing. It could be snowed upon again shortly - we never know what to expect!

The landscape looks lovely though!

We're having a bit of a thaw here in West Michigan....good news for those of us who are struck with spring fever! By the weekend the remaining snow will be gone. However...it has been known to snow clear into April, so we are not holding our breath!
