The snow has all but disappeared!!!!!!
If you think I'm a tad off-kilter by being so excited by this, you need to understand that in early December, my area got a record-breaking snowfall of 143 cm (that's over 4' for my American friends) in just 2 days. And it never left!! For those of you who can't wrap your sun-soaked minds around it, I've provided these visual aids: (go ahead - click on them to enlarge and appreciate in their fullest)

Now, besides restoring my sanity, this thaw has also resolved two of my pressing problems. First, my husband can finally unroll his Giant Thing-A-Ma-Bob (my, that does sound naughty, doesn't it?). And second, we can finally poop scoop the yard and remove those tempting poopsicles which have been fueling Bojangle's addiction. (see My Dirty Little Secret).
It's a good day.
