YAY! Today is the first day of Spring! I’m so happy. This winter I had the worst bout of Cabin Fever I ever had to deal with. I realize that we still have weeks of snow left in the U.P. but at least its starting to warm up slightly so the shit can melt. I can actually see the pavement on about 2/3 of my driveway for the first time since December. The other 1/3 is shaded by my house so I can’t see that going away anytime soon but it does make for a nice little ice rink!
It’s been kind of interesting watching the snowbanks melt. Well, I haven’t literally been watching them melt… more like seeing them get slightly smaller as each day passes. I can actually see over the snowbanks at the end of my driveway now! That’s pretty thrilling in itself. Next to the house, one snow bank looks like it completely detached itself where the pile was leaning against the house. I can only assume the heat from the house melted it but it still looks rather strange. The same sort of thing is happening by the sidewalk… its like the snow is melting from the bottom up. It’s the first time I’ve seen anything like it. Or, perhaps I never paid that close attention.
