It felt like mid-spring today, and has been feeling like spring for about a week now.
It was a long time coming, though! After a very mild December and January, February came down like Thor’s hammer.
We got almost three feet of snow over about four days.
The kitties were not amused.
Nor were the goats.
Nor were the wild birds. I had to spread seed on the porch, because the snow was so deep and soft. We even got a family of quail coming by!
Nor was the Rob. He was quite worried about the roofs, and whether our smaller structures would be able to hold the weight.
Even once the snow was off the roofs, the snow barely melted until last week — it just compressed, and compressed, and compressed, but with a freeze every night it was excruciatingly slow.
About a week ago the temperatures bobbed above freezing and stayed there.
And finally, finally, the snow receded.
There is still snow, especially in the shade, but the crocuses are in full bloom, and the bees are out enjoying them!
