The ugly snow persists here...and it's difficult for me. I hate ugly snow. It's ugly.
Unfortunately, ugly snow stays in my yard for a long time. My neighbors are mowing and raking and I'm still shoveling snow off my lawn onto the street. (OK maybe they aren't really mowing, but it feels like it) I have a huge pine tree in my front yard that shades the snow and keeps it from melting under the global warming of the sun.
At least now it's only this:
Instead of the mountain that my kids and grandchildren used as a sledding hill this Christmas....seriously they did....really.
We had soooo much snow this year. Snow is good, it provides our valley with water, snow is good, this snow was pretty:
The snow that currently remains on my lawn is NOT pretty. It needs to go away. I threatened my neighbor (the one who is almost mowing his lawn) that I was going to shovel snow from my yard into his....but I'm not bitter or anything.
Anyway, as soon as this last bit of snow melts......I'm going to celebrate by having a give-away!!!! Something for me to look forward to. As I am typing this entry my neighbor across the street is raking her lawn....what a brat! I hate when neighbors aren't neighborly....but I'm not bitter or anything.
