More snow

I am beginning to think this season is not going to happen. We bought our 5er last July 31. Was able to put in 6 weekends then it went to Indiana for some warranty work. We tried to get out early and test the work the good people at Forrest River did. First trip planned for February 22, snowed out. Second trip for March 9th, snowed out. Third trip for March 23rd, snowed out. Decided to give it a couple of weeks and let spring take hold. Planned a trip for this coming weekend, we just got a foot of snow on the ground here.

Another foot of snow?! I can only sympathize, and I do!
That just sucks! Hopefully fall will be delayed to make up for lack of spring.

Had snow here yesterday and I still have 10 to 12 foot high snow banks in my garden area and outer tree lines around the yard.

Hopefully that won't push winter back, which might push next spring back, again . Seriously, IMHO there must be something going on with global weather patterns. Last summer had long stretchs of temps over 100 which we rarely get. Now long stretch of cooler if not cold weather and much more rain/snow.

Looking outside I see a sea of white across the landscape and frozen lakes. Here in Minneapolis we havenít seen 60 degrees in 145 days. Its been 177 days since we last crossed the 70 degree threshold. Looking 10 days out there is neither a 60 or 70 degree day on the horizon. Itís been a long winter indeed with no respite. Kinda explains all the glum up this way.

We're in Greeley about 50 miles north of Lynkage.

My four year old grandson is about to divorce us. We had 31 nights scheduled on weekends, now we're down to 23.
