February at Last

Another snowfall:

And snow continues to coat the ground... since mid-December. The temperature may only be about 5 and 10 degrees cooler here than in NJ, but that has made the difference in preventing snow melt and making any precipitation snow instead of rain. But relief is on the horizon.


February is here, and February makes me hopeful. After the excitement between Thanksgiving and New Year's, January always seems endless, dark and severe. But the short month of February zips by with my upcoming 17th anniversary, Valentine's and my birthday on the 28th. March is on the horizon with its longer days, occasional warmth and the promise of spring.

Wishing you a joyous February.
I remember 43 years ago - 'February 28 was the beginning of a beautiful spring.'
