The river is still frozen, but look at that brown! Mud season is just around the corner! We still have a lot of snow by our house, though. It will take a while to melt down those snowbanks,
but areas that didn't get that extra pile-up of snow are way down. I am most interested to see how long it is going to take to melt that solid block of ice on top of the pool cover.
What a winter here! It's been pretty sometimes,
and it has been the best year for icicles EVER.
The term "gripping cold" came to mind when I saw this one with it's two graspy little fingers.
Spring is, however, on the way! Kyle, our son who lives three hours south of here in New York City, says they have some actual green there. I held off on changing over the chalkboard from the St. Patrick's design to something for Easter as long as I could. The deal was that I would remove the snowman if I saw even one crocus. Didn't happen. Unfortunately, with Easter arriving early this year and spring taking a
particularly leisurely stroll northward, there is little chance that the
snow will be gone for the big day. So here's the snowbunny wishing you a happy Easter from a still quite snowy northeastern New York!
