I saw a robin yesterday! He was sitting on a branch, just above a snowbank almost as high as th ebranch he was on. A robin is a sure sign that spring is on it's way!
Everything is melting too! We have enormous amounts of snow still in our yard. Two days ago, you could not see our composter, it was completely buried. Today you can see two feet of it! There is a downside, however, and that is the flooding. Considering that when I went to get the mail, I fell through the snow crust up to my waist and didn't go deeper because of my body stopping it, there is a pile more snow to melt yet. here is a shot I took at about 8:30 am today
and here is a shot at 3 pm today
I guess it is kind of hard to tell, (you can sort of gage by the sattelite thing on the left side) but the water has risen a few feet. It has risen in my basement as well. There is about a foot of water down there. Good thing it's an old oogy basement and we do not keep anything down there! I noticed that the ditch (6 feet deep or so) across the road is full to the top, and about to go over the road!
HURRY UP, SPRING!!!
