The snow is melting! Last night the weather man joyfully proclaimed we were down to 9inches of snow on the ground. He bragged that it would continue to melt through the night. He was right. This morning there are puddles forming on the lake. You can see bare patches under trees and along the fence. The deer and coyote trails have created small tracks of exposed grass and mud. The snow banks near the mail box and along the drive are now down to shoulder height.
It makes me smile and think that Spring is less than 40 days away.
