51 Days until Spring

This is definitely one of those winter's to remember !
I know it's not just Michigan but many other places as well are suffering through the brutal cold.
No school here again and that's a good thing. if I still had young children I wouldn't let them walk
or stand outside for a bus.
We haven't had many days that are over 10 degrees this month add the wind and we have 20 to 30
below wind chill. Our normal snowfall is around 90/95 in. and we already have 142.
We are finding it difficult to shovel the snow over the high banks plus few places left to put it.
Because of the cold not much works to melt the icy roads. The plows have a tough time keeping up with
the drifting yet continue to do the best they can.
Even our two Golden's shy away from the door at times looking at me as if to say they've decided it just not necessary at the moment.
Do I hate winter? No just the awful cold and the endless days of white before I get to see green again.It seems to last longer as I grow older.
It is home,it is warm inside and I will wait to see that bright green of spring as I do every year and I will wish as always winter didn't last so long.
Stay warm and safe where ever you are,only 51 days until Spring !
