There are twenty inches of snow on the ground, left by the last system to come through the area. Now, I have to look forward to it all melting. Why am I worried? Me worry?
When the snow melts, my front porch will be a swimming pool, the yard will look like Lake Floodandmud, my driveway will be mush and cinders (I live in a ancient volcanic field). If it weren't so cold I'd put my swimming suit on and have such fun! However, I am not a polar bear.
Favoring a nice fire in the woodstove and a hot cuppa to flipping and slipping on the snow and mud, I'm satisfied to be sitting here, writing this little rant.
My sympathies go out to all in the midwest who are experiencing that horrible ice storm.
Now, on a lighter note....do re mi...
My lilac tree is dormant, the herbs have tucked in for the winter, and the few veggies I've tried growing this year are gone and buried. This snow will ensure wildflowers in the area, including glorious sunflowers covering the meadows in gold. Against the tall, green pines and brilliant blue sky, the sunflowers make a vivid scene which soothes the soul. I'll definately get my camera, and my canvas out.
For now....I await spring, reading my seed catalogs (wish books) and working in my little office.
Another day, another dollar, isn't that what 'they' say?

Now 20 inches I can relate to although it has been many, many years since I lived in such a land. Mountains of WV. You must post pictures of your area. Before the snow and now of course. We would love to see them. Also introduce yourself in the top forum of this site. Welcome Linda B from SC

We haven't had this much snow in years, although it used to be the 'norm'! I'll definately post some before and after pictures and I'll introduce myself in the forum, thanks!
