Slow Start to Spring

It seems like a disproportionate number of my blogs lately have to do with the weather, and when spring might arrive, but I just can’t help it! I am so looking forward to the day when all of this snow is gone. From reading people’s blogs, it sounds like a lot of snow cover is (hopefully) going away for the season. But not around here.

We still have A LOT of snow!


The only grass to be seen around here is the teeny tiny area that Harry cleared when he was snow blowing the sidewalk.


My sister and I have guessed when all of our snow will be gone – I chose the 19th of March – that was more from wishful thinking than anything else, and she guessed the 25th of March.


But if it doesn’t start warming up more than it has so far, our first glimpse of real grass may be our vacation in five and a half weeks, when we travel to Tennessee for the RV rally. In fact, my vacation actually starts five weeks from today!!! I can’t believe it is so close, but I’m glad it is!! Open-mouthed smile


  1. George always thinks that the snow in my yard in Hazleton goes faster than it does. It's usually there until early April!

    Tennessee here we come! :)

  2. Wish I could be there too! But not this year.
