Spring is in the air, for now

Spring is teasing us

 

My backyard is a lake.  I don’t think it will be long before we are able to launch small watercraft out there.

It has been lovely here the last few days.  Today it was up in the 50’s!  The 50’s I tell you!  Amazing.  So all the snow is melting.  That’s the good news.

The bad news is the ground underneath the snow is still frozen.  Several weeks of nearly constant single digit to sub-zero temperatures will do that.  So all the snow melts, and it just sits there because the ground can’t absorb it.

Meanwhile, the weather is so warm I feel like the children should be outside,  but they lack the proper equipment.  Namely, a set of waders.  The Princess made do this afternoon with a few laps around the driveway, and pronounced it awesome, but I wish the ground would dry out.

I wonder how long we have before the next ice storm.
