It has been a very strange Winter. We have barely had any snow. I kept wondering when it would happen, but realized that OF COURSE it wasn’t going to snow. We paid a fortune for a new snow blower at the beginning of the season. Murphy’s Law indicates in no uncertain terms that, if you pay through the nose for a John Deere snow blower, it will not snow. At all.

We started to feel Spring last week. Moved by the sound of chirping birds that made me think of that scene in Shrek , I decided to take the video camera outside on what felt like the Springiest of Spring days. Behold, SPRING.

And then.

It started to snow not even 48 hours later. And it didn’t stop. Behold, WINTER…FINALLY.

Welcome to New England.
