What A Difference A Day Makes!!!

It might not look like it, BUT Spring is coming!  I hear birds chirping away almost everyday now! 
YEAH!!!
OLM has been battling another sinus infection... UGH!  But... Spring is coming and snow is melting!
Now...
Monday we got another 6.2 inches of snow.  That puts us around 68 inches for the season.  Normal for us is about 33.... So two winters worth in one season, oh my!
Now, we warmed up right after Christmas, even got some rain, so lots of snow melted, before it seems on average every couple of days we got snow over the last month and a half... 
YUP, a good old winter....
So, for the first time in weeks we ARE above freezing!  It feels like a heat wave!
So Knuckles and I went for a short walk... nothing was plowed out from Monday... I took a couple of pictures too...
So Tuesday morning...
 The OLM homestead... See my lil old prim fences in my flower bed? Barely anyway...
 Knuckles wanted out on the path... plowed or not... LOL... I saw them about a hour ago FINALLY plowing out again....
 Come back Knuckles... I am trying to walk through that! LOL
 Poor mailbox... It's taken a couple of direct hits from the plows this year... Now our town will replace them at some point... But, they are crap... So we will just get a new one this Spring....
 Come sit a spell... Tuesday morning....
 And Just about a half hour ago... YIKES, it's melting fast... Which is great...BUT... there will be flooding, and this is not good...
yesterday morning... Knuckles goes here for treats from the neighbors who spoil him, one yes being the hot dog man...

Already today... Amazing!  Tomorrow, rain they say... at least a inch of rain, where will that go? OLM

The rain goes into the potholes! I hate them!!!!!!! They are no bad here! It looks like Swiss cheese on the road. ! Yikes!!!!!!

The weather has been interesting for sure. Can't keep Knuckles down though! Good for him :)
Yeh, I'm dreading the flooding after the thaw. We're close to a river city and they always have to deal with it. What a mess there will be.
Feel better soon darlin'.

The sun is higher and the birds are singing!!! Our snow is melting slowly but after the rains we had it is harder than heck.
Stay warm!
