Yes, today is the first day of spring. In the Midwest and East, flowers are blooming and people are getting tanned at the beachs. The beachs at Lake Michigan that is!
Here on the Eastern side of the Cascades, we woke up to nearly a foot of snow. It’s my wife’s birthday today and she gets to have a White one at that. Our Christmas wasn’t white this year but in celebration of my wife now being eligible for Medicare, Mother Nature gave her her favorite present- Snow!
She spent the morning shoveling snow off the decks in front and back saying it was good exercise. Me? I pushed around a snow blower and then jumped on the ATV with the plow in front and did the street that goes to our driveway.
Our Labradoodle, Scooter, was in seventh heaven with all the snow. We think he was a snow ball in his prior life what with his love of snow.
Here’s a couple of pictures I took earlier today when the snow was really coming down. Which explains some spots on the picture with the trees.
