    Default Is Spring Ever Going to Get Here?

    Looking out my window at nearly 3 FT of snow sitting in my yard. It has snowed just about every other day and if I am not working I am shoveling off 1) driveway 2) sidewalks 3) paths to bird pens 4) roof. Today we are blessed with 40 degree weather and torrential rains. The roads are already flooding because all the drains are plugged with ice and snow. I just came back from a 2 hr hike in the rain because what else can I do with them. Can't run marks in nearly 3 FT of snow. Can't even run drills as the driveway is ice covered, although after today we may be able to do some water cheating drills in the lower part. Sun would be nice but it seems to have left the area. My young dog is in the middle of FTP and we are unable to move on. We are all a little stir crazy. Even the cat is getting bored.

    In northern Minnesota spring is coming, we figure it should get here about the middle of summer!

    In California we never got winter so I'm not sure about spring. Not a single real storm during duck season.

    It will be an ugly year for us in CA. Not good for fish, farmers or forest fires.
