Another snow day in the trenches

Last February we had over 50 inches of snow in one week and that was a sight to be hold.  This February we've had just random plowable snows over the course of the last two months.  I suppose it is what January and February are supposed to be like, but I personally think it's worse than the 50 inches we had last year.

This snow is like the annoying relative that won't go home.  That keeps staying just one more night.  The kind of snow that isn't good for snowmen, isn't all that great for sledding in and is difficult to snow blow because it flies back into your face. 

Friday it was 71 degrees here.  We were playing in the driveway with chalk and wearing nothing but t-shirts.  Today we are off of school.  The low tonight is supposed to be in the single digits and we have a fresh six inches of snow. 

I can't explain it but I have spring fever this year far worse than I did last year. 

I'm ready to put the sleds, the boots and the snow pants away.  I'm ready to bring the lawnmower to the front and push the snow blower to the back. 

I. am. ready. for. spring.

Same kind of crazy weather here in the Buffalo area too, but not quite as warm and the temps on the cold days are a bit colder too. I hate this and can't wait for spring!
