Spring Ain't Here...!

Monday, March 07, 2011

This is NOT what one wants to wake up to on March 7th!

Sometimes jazz musicians pick head-scratching titles to their songs and Pat Metheny's "Spring Ain't Here" has always been one of them.

Until today...found the perfect use of that title...!

For once, I couldn't shoo my neighbor and his snow-blower away...funny how a foot & half of snow changes one's ambitions just a tad...! Even after he did the rough stuff I STILL had a couple hours of HEAVY-DUTY snow shoveling on my hands. Getting both ends of the driveway free & clear:

and the mailbox ready for the the USPS:

But hey, my little mighty might mp3 player kept obliging with the tunes!

Including LOTS of tunes from my favorite Incognito album: Tales From the Beach:

Since my neighbor to the south helped with his snow blower I helped my neighbor to the north as his tractor seemed to be broken down...but I couldn't POSSIBLY shovel ALL the way down his driveway to his property out BACK:

Here's an "after" shot down our ramp out front:

As I worked on the snow I was SO PLEASED to see the sun come blasting out and melting everything away. The sun and blue skies were a MOST welcome sight!

Here's the view out our front door:

This is my current SparkPage wallpaper...

Okay, so this AIN'T spring, but with a sun blazing like today it can't be long before we're savoring our spring, summer and fall!

Make it a SPARKIN' week everyone!

    I feel your pain. Literally!! I had about 18". I cleared it in about 5 hours, though. Not too shabby. And I can still move today. Thank goodness for Sparkpeople workouts!

    We didn't get a lot of snow but we did get a lot of ice - the trees are still encased in it - and so I spent 2 hours shoveling & only got half cleared. I'll be back out there today.

And it made me ravenous! I sure carb loaded yesterday, but at least I did stay in my range.

Here's to sunny skies . . . too bad they're not predicting a whole lot of em for this week!

    My heart goes out to you. Thankfully we just had a couple inches of rain. The good news is that it can't last, the sun is getting warmer, the days are getting longer. The skunks are awakening. Spring is around the corner.

    I agree, the sun was stunning today! Our driveway was bone dry by mid-afternoon. And I let Al do most of the heavy lifting with the blower today too.

Thanks for the beautiful pictures and the tunes. We had snow all day here and as when I began SP back in 2008 and we had snow till June that year and never had a spring. Good luck with your snow as I will here on the other side of the country.

God Bless & take it easy.

    WOW! I love the shot you used for the wall paper. We had 3 inches here in Ohio. I'll stop complaining.
