Enough With The Snow Already!

Back in January we had snow storm after snow storm.

After snow storm.

We had so much snow that it piled up on the streets and sidewalks.

And while it looks pretty in the photos, especially in the trees - it turns dirty and soggy and makes the streets a big slushy mess.

We had so much snow this year, a strange snow pile built up across the street. I'm not sure if it was all snow or a pile of trash covered in snow.

But the big snow pile was there for weeks and weeks. (Yes those are Christmas trees waiting to be picked up. I actually saw a Christmas tree out by the trash on St. Patrick's Day - who keeps up a Christmas tree until mid-March?!)

Finally by the time we got back from Iceland it was almost gone. Rain showers washed the last bit of it away.

And now with April just around the corner the snow pile is gone and we are ready for Spring. Apparently Mother Nature has other plans because last week we had more snow!

It was enough to get some accumulation, but thankfully not enough to create another snow pile.

Over the weekend it was bright and sunny outside but the temperatures were in the 30s and 40s. Enough of this cold business - it is time to put away the heavy coats and thick gloves!
