Winter Wonderland

Just when I was starting think the warmer weather was upon us for good, wham! We get hit with a snow storm. We got about 6 inches of snow in the evening and overnight hours. I'm not opposed to snow, but am looking forward to spending time outside without snow boots and snow pants. I am anxious for the arrival of the tulips I planted in the fall, I am anxious to plant a veggetable garden, I am anxious to get our lawn under control and looking good....I could keep going, but you get the idea.
The one benefit to the snow - it was absolutely gorgeous on my drive to work this morning. Everything was completly covered in a nice fresh white blanket, even the trees. I love to see the grayness of winter trees masked by snow - makes me want to sit by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy the beauty of winter.

We ended up having only a dusting of snow, and it certainly hasn't gotten as cold as they predicted (crossing fingers, hoping). I was out last night covering up my strawberries. This is their second year, and I am hoping to get a lot more fruit from them. I am a Nervous Nelly!

You make it sound wonderful - which is amazing given it is April and winter has gone on and on for you I'm sure.
