Early Spring?

Yes, the weather outside was frightful today.  At first I glanced out and thought, not so bad...then I realized everything, just everything, was crystal coated in ice.  The driveway looked like a milky skating rink, the trees looked other worldly, and the car definitely looked like it was going to need some serious time to thaw out.

By afternoon I started to see and hear the drip-drip-drip of melting icicles and by sundown the trees looked of this world again and all the crystals were gone.  The driveway still looks hazardous, but oh well...what's life without a little element of danger, right?

Speaking of which....


Did you hear the "prognosticator of prognosticators" today? 

My theory is, this guy has a strong sense of self-preservation.  Pronouncing 6 more weeks of THIS winter, would likely have yielded groundhog stew for supper.

Yes, for the first time in my life I saw the prognosticator, live, up close and personal. On our local news, the woman who did the traffic report said she did not care whether or not it was a lie... she said had P. Phil said anything else, she would have declared, "GROUNDHOG for SUPPER." She scared me.

But you know, no matter how you look at it, and regardless of whether the sun shines on Phil or not, it's still 6 more weeks of winter until March 21. But I do hope the rest of your winter is more benevolent.
