Start the Celebration

Well, February is over.

Behind us, although probably not to be forgotten and we will be cleaning up the mess for a long time.

The snowiest, coldest, most miserable February in a long time. I know for the region I live in it was not the snowiest--that would be the Snowpocalypse of 2010, but it sure has been cold and miserable. Other parts of the country have seen record snowfalls raising the miserable factor to new levels. 

Someone remarked that the historic average high temperature for this time of year in the Baltimore region is 50 degrees. I would love to see temperatures even in the 40 degree range. Yesterday topped out at 31 degrees.

The Yard
March 1, 2015

But the month is behind us now and March has arrived with the promise of melting snow and warmer temperatures. It is going to be a messy start--but it can only get better from here. Later this month, the sun crosses the Equator and heads into the northern hemisphere and so things should really begin to heat up--finally. I'm looking forward to seeing green instead of brown and gray.

Despite the fact that snow completely covers my yard and more snow, sleet, and freezing rain are forecast for today and much of this week, I am still holding out hope of mowing my lawn at least once before the end of the month. 

It could happen!
