spring forward

The weather guys said that we were going to get some snow after midnight. Rush hour in the snow is always fun. I left an hour early and took something to eat and drink just in case. There are always guys, you know the type, that think driving fast and weaving in and out of traffic is a sign of manhood. Maybe it’s my age or maybe because I drove for a living, but I do get a chuckle when I see them in a ditch or slapped up against the median strip. But I digress. The closer to the lake I got, the heavier the snow. Great, I thought, I’ll get to work and then they’ll call school off. I didn’t get to school. The call came before I got there. I got home just in time to shovel. Today it’s in the 40’s and sunny. By Monday, there won’t be any snow left, just water and mud in the back yard.

It's a rabbit with a mohawk. I have no idea how Mr. Rabbit survives. He is right in the middle of a deer path. Maybe it's professional courtesy of some sort.
Spring's march is unstoppable.

We,ve been lucky Jim, just some rain and cooler weather.

Looks like you got really dumped on up there, too. As beautiful as Friday morning was, I'm up to here with this stuff. I really like your dark red gazing ball - what a sharp contrast to all that white. Glad you didn't get stuck during rush hour... Is it spring yet?

It melted as soon as it hit the ground here so we only had a covering on the hill. Looks like you got dumped on. It was a pretty one Jim, well maybe if you do not have to drive in it. Thankfully it will not stay around to long this time of the year. Love the gazing ball. It looks so pretty in all of that white.

Your bunny looks like he's clasping his hands together for warmth! he could use some mittens. ;-)
