Let It . . . Melt

As Mother Nature continues to puke her guts out on us today was at least less craptastic than last week. It snowed last night. We were already ahead of the game when we actually got the snow that was predicted instead of ice.  As Charlie Sheen would say, winning!  

Even better was that the snow melted fairly promptly. By about 10:30 this morning it was largely gone. There was still some snow in the woods and shaded areas, but otherwise it received the memo that this is still the south and it is supposed to melt. Things are starting to feel more normal. 

The best part was when Jason walked out in one of the pastures to one of the daffodil pastures. Amazingly there were a couple that were within a day or two of blooming. Apparently all hope is not lost. 

I could go on and on about the fact that we are almost into March and we should be thinking about prepping our lawnmower for the season, not celebrating the fact that our snow melted. But clearly my feelings on the matter don't count when it comes to weather these days so I'll take what little victories I can and then attempt to shut up about it. I'm sure it comes as a surprise to exactly no one that the last part (about shutting up) really is a struggle for me. 

I did see where one day next week it is supposed to be almost 70 degrees. However I'm not getting my hopes up yet. It isn't next week and NOAA has not exactly been hitting it out of the park when it comes to accurate forecasting lately. I guess I'll find out what Mother Nature has planned for us soon enough.

I have forgotten what 70 degrees feels like. 10 here tonight.
