I Am So Ready For Spring!!!

Boy were we hit hard, and I mean HARD with snow.  It started snowing yesterday around 10:30 in the morning.  A light, pretty snow.  By evening it was coming down hard, and it continued all through the night.  Woke up this morning, looked outside and OMG!!!  And it is still snowing as of 3:30 pm.
This is not the greatest picture as I took it from the inside.  It is hard to tell how much we got in total snowfall.  The local news channel reports that the area where I live got 30 inches.  It was and still is very windy outside and there are drifts every where.  Here is a picture of where our cars are parked.
For all of you snow lovers here are some more pictures:
At the end of our driveway, between the drifting and what goodies the snow plows left us, there is about 5 feet of snow. The picture above is my son.  My poor dog will be confined to a long leash forever.  The snow is so high around the fence, that I'm afraid she might get courageous enough and jump over.
Now I'm sure that the most  you you have seen my garden album.  Well here is my garden.  Oh how I wish it were Spring, and I could stand out there and see the signs of life on all my plants.  Instead I look from my window and hang my head in frustration over all the snow.  I am waiting for my neighbor across the street to come plow us out with his tractor.  That won't be until tomorrow. Even after that, we still have to get our cars out.  

Ok, I've done my complaining.  Do I feel any better?  I guess a little.  Send me some warm wishes, as I need them!

Debbie -- You sure have a right to complain. While the snow is beautiful, that is way too much snow for anyone! Maybe getting your garden album out and looking at the pictures of your flowers will remind you that spring is truly just around the corner. Hang in there!

Debbie, Just wanted you to know that I've been thinking about ya! Sorry that you are soooo snowed in. It is beautiful though to look at but I too am on the prowl for something green to pop open! However, I can see some great layouts you'll be doing with these photos! Stay warm!
