Aha, says old man winter, I'm not done with you yet, and dumps another 15 inches....sigh.
But we've since had more rain, which has melted much of this, and despite a very gray weekend, and more snow this morning as I write...spring really will come.
Sometimes, oh faithless me, I need visual proof of this eventuality. So I went digging through some of last years photos....
It really is coming!
