We had rain all last night. Hard rain. Pelting rain. Snow-washing-away-rain.
This weather is the kind of weather we get in March. The kind that washes away all the old snow. Did they get rain south of us? Noooooo. They got snow south of us. What the heck is wrong with this picture?
This is our pond covered with inches of water on top of rotting ice. Rotting ice with holes in it. Blast.
This is the back side of our house. The north side where we pile snow up against the foundation for insulation. Blast.
This is part of our driveway. Slippery, slidey, muddy driveway. Blast.
These are my garden beds which had been all snuggled down for the winter underneath a heavy snow blanket. Now they are hanging out in the cold, damp air shivering. Blast.
These are my blueberry bushes that were juuuust about totally covered with snow to protect them for the winter. They are no longer protected. Dang.
So, like, is this spring already? Did we miss winter? Why is it raining when it's supposed to be snowing?? Huh? HUH?
