Well, we had a 24 hour blizzard which wasn't awesome - especially since I had to drive home in the dark during the blizzard. It's usually about 75 mins but took an extra hour because: blizzard. But today, we woke up to no new snow and a light freeze. A light freeze! Not rock solid, not snow covered, not any of what we've been waking up to.
And now it's dripping. Like melting dripping. I know I shouldn't care but I really do.
And I know there's going to be lots of wet. Lots and lots and lots of wet and mud. For example, this big wad of snow that's encroaching on my deck.
You might ask yourself why I'm letting the snow encroach that far onto my deck. I mean really, why not just shovel it off.
Well, let's just say that when we built our house, we didn't think about things like massive amounts of snow sliding from the roof and creating huge piles - mountains really - of snow.
So without any reference point, it might be hard to tell but that pile is about 6ft high and stretches the length of the deck. So yes, there will be wetness. Lots of wetness. And our deck is a mess - filled with my dye pots and all sorts of things.
But still.... it's melting I'm happy about that. I'm so ready to get to gardening. I think I've been too busy to really appreciate the winter so that's on the list to shift as well - I don't want to be so busy that I just grumble about the mud. And truly, I'm making myself so busy I'm back in the "chasing my tail" frame of the modern mind. It's silly because I know better and I help other people know better. Just shows how insidious it is, doesn't it? Hmmm. More (internal) work needed!
