The snow is gone!
I know this may not be too exciting to you especially if you live in the southern states, but we have just had one looooong winter. Started getting very cold in Oct. had snow on the ground and was very cold on Halloween. Then it still snowed again for a couple of days, the first week of April. We were on "Enough already!" Grand total of 360 inches or 144 cm. of snow this winter, over 7 months.
So last week it started to rain and get warmer in the daytime, and slowly all the snow in the yard except for one last little bit in the shade, was gone this morning.
Today it got up to 64F, and I had a couple of guys come over and clean up the yard and driveway of sand and salt. I have patches of GREEN GRASS! WOO WOO!!
The crocuses and blue bells are coming out and blooming, a sure sign of spring here.
Then as I was putting away the yard tools at dusk, noticed my first few mosquitoes. Ok definitely a sign of spring!
So how's your weather???
