Snow – GONE!

ODE TO NO SNOW

The wicked snow has finally departed

And NO I’m absolutely NOT broken-hearted

I was up to my eyeballs in all that white

I dreamed about it every night

I missed my grass, my yard, my “OUT”

I had cabin fever, there was no doubt

But Spring is springing and the snow has gone

It makes me want to sing a song……….

SO I THINK I WILL – READY??????

EXCITED2

HAHAHA………I’m happy that even though yesterday was rainy and a bit dreary, it got up to the mid 60s.  Just enough “warm” that all that icky snow is GONE from my yard.  Now I could hold mud-wrestling tournaments in my backyard because all that snow melted and made it VERY MESSY.   Mom was out putting more sunflower seeds in the birdfeeders and slip-slided her way across the yard avoiding falling on her buns hind quarter and the birds were cheering her on the whole way.   The cardinals, blue jays, chickadees – all of them were following her as she slid across the yard to the feeders……..the SECOND she filled them they were swarming the scene.    I watched from the living room window and kept myself from giggling (so you better not tell on me!!!!).

Today is a laundry day so it will be QUIET.   I’m all for that………….oh – and I’m sure Mom will let me go out and patrol the grounds a bit.   A guy has to check on what might have been buried under all that snow – who knows what treasures I’ll find!

Fresh air!  No snow!

    • I agree……and here they make it even uglier by spreading RED or BROWN sand all over the roads which turns the snow piles into UGLY mounds of glug! Well, it’s all melting away finally. YAY!

  1. Good luck out there, today, S. Since you’re in your own yard, I don’t think there’ll be much to find under the snow, except gorgeous grass. Around the apartment complex where I live, I expect to find all kinds of litter and unusual stuff. Maybe some candy wrappers!

    • Yep the old Dow took a tumble didn’t it……and my Mom almost took one herself on the way out to the birdfeeder – of course you doooooods would have said “serves her right!!!”……..but after all, it’s mostly squirrels and deer that visit the feeders…….SOME burds but lotsa other “stuff”. This morning we had two BIG FAT raccoons on the front porch looking for a handout. Mom draws the line at that!
