One of the few times we welcome rain is when it could have been snow instead. So the temperatures hovering about 40 last night and today have brought us a much welcomed rain. The bonus of which is watching our snow steadily disappear! This morning in town it was very clear which side of the street gets the sun - because the other side had 3 times more snow!! We are starting to see patches of ground peek through the snow, and the geese are taking advantage of a new supply of food to get them ready for their long trek home. Although its still about 70% snow, 30% ground - we feel the promise of spring around the corner. The weather man warns us that more winter weather will visit us before Spring makes a permanent landing -- but ........ daylight savings times comes in two weeks --- Spring cant be far behind.
