Spring doesn’t magically appear.
The wind still blows and picks up its icy coldness from the snow. It still snows. The lakes are still frozen and there is talk that there will still be ice on the lakes for Fishing Opener in May. Someone said there is 28 –38 inches of ice on the lakes…that takes time and warmth to melt…more warmth than we have had.
My half way decent pair of snowboots (Uggs bought about 7 years ago) have a hole on the right side of the right foot…guess they are not half way decent anymore…Far Guy said throw them away…well duh…I will when winter is over. He said “Your not going to wear them to town are you?” I did and no one even noticed. (town has no old snowboot police) I have a brand new pair of winter boots bought on sale before winter but to get them out now when we have mud would not be a good way to break those in even if they are brown. My other pair of worn out boots (because I patched a hole with a leather patch)…have yak traks on them. I have a perfect pair of red muck boots to wear but they are so cold…I shiver just thinking of it. It isn’t even dry enough or warm enough for crocs with socks.
I want to put my full length parka away but I use it some mornings when Chance wants me to go outside with him. I want to put away my Grinch stocking cap but people at Bingo might not recognize me without it. I want to put away the snow shovel and the ice chisel. I just want winter to be over with.
Yes it snowed again on Sunday night not much but it is still snow.
