Re: No Snow

Saturday night's light snowfall was very pretty, and everything stayed
frosted until today.  The sun is out - has been since morning - and the
temperature is 40 degrees, so all the frozen bits are falling off.  The
prediction is for snow again tonight and freezing rain tomorrow.  I'm
glad we don't really have anywhere we have to go tomorrow - freezing
rain is really the very worst.  Snow, we can cope with, but the ice is
really scary.
Today I looked out the kitchen window to see robins in my back yard.
I haven't seen any robins for several weeks, and had assumed that they
had migrated on schedule.  I guess these must be laggards from north
of us who just now got moving.  I really don't think they are moving back
up from the south.

The much-hyped storm brought us maybe an inch of rain and no snow. I
always know we are not going to get what the forecasts say, but I
figured with snow levels supposedly dropping to 1500 ft we would see
SOMETHING. But no. All the local mountains got some and they closed a
bunch of roads but there were just a few lonely puddles at my house.
What we did get was a lot of wind. I mowed and raked the front yard last
Saturday and now it is under a foot of leaves. Well... at least I
shouldn't have to mow for another couple months. Tis the season to rake
leaves, fa la la la.
