Where Is Spring?

Punxsutawney Phil predicted 6 more weeks of Winter. This first week has really been something. My truck is covered again with snow this Winter.
The driveway is shoveled but more snow is coming today.
I ordered a volleyball set for use next Spring in the back yard from the internet at http://www.csnstores.com/ . It will come to a snow covered mailbox.
At least it doesn't look like my neighbors mailbox.
The store also sells mailboxes


Just to show with the snow comes some beauty a tree with red berries from across the street..
Where is Spring? At least another five weeks away.

Spring is 'circling' around...

You've gotten much more snow than we have and you're welcome to keep it, although it started snowing here last night and it's still coming down.

It is sad to see the decapitated mailboxes after a big snow. My own car fishtailed last night going home. I recovered alright, but it was a surprise that it happened at all, because I am a careful driver.

Oh, my goodness!!! We are awaiting much the same here where I am visiting in Mass. It has just started to spit snow. They've already canceled school in many communities! I do admit, it is pretty! ~karen

Whoa! We don't have THAT MUCH snow, THANK GOD! I'm ready for spring, too & I'm IMpatiently waiting for it!

The snow covered berry tree is pretty. I am hoping you are right about spring SOON.

Waiting for the circle?

Wow! that's a lot of snow!! And it is beautiful -- for a while! Weather these days is just so weird! Last year we had the coldest, most snow in Seattle in 50 years and this year we've had the warmest winter on record! Who knows??? Whatever, I'm still ready for spring -- mild winter or not I miss the colors and the blue skies. But I shouldn't be whining about that. Stay warm, Tom!

well spring is not over here FG, I'm not hiding it!

Rose said...

Does the wind blow over at your place as much as here...we probably got 6 or 7 inches total out of this last snow. In some places it has been blown till you see the ground and in others it is a foot or two deep.

I am anxious for spring and glad I don't have snow. It will be the end of summer when I get to South Africa. Not too bad. Good luck with the badmitten.

Tipper said...

Snowing at my house today-but nothing like what you've got : )

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Maybe --if we get through THIS week, it will get better until Spring... Wouldn't that be nice???? Of course my Farmers Almanac says that we will have more snow in February---so I don't think it is over. Gads!!!!!

Great photos, Tom...

I wish I needed to go on a flight right now just to fly over so much snow. Amazing. It's hard to imagine you'll be able to set up that volleyball net soon. Our snow went away, but it's till cold, and I'm having a difficult time imagining that it will ever be warm again.

Grace Olsson said...
