A light at the end of the tunnel!

It's 39 degrees here in North Dakota today, if you can believe it! I see spring off in the distance! Woo, hoo! Shadow or no shadow, nicer weather is on it's way. Get out those Rollerbaldes and bikes, or just your walking shoes to get out there enjoying the sun in your face and the smell of flowers beginning to bloom! Only bad part of this all, is that we've had alot of snow here in the last 4 months and as it all melts, we have rivers gushing through the streets. My yard has a drainage route through it and I tell you what, I had to pull my car ahead, out into the street before I could leave for work this evening. Then proceed to balance on the small strip of pavement not in the "lake" and go back to the house to change shoes and socks. Back to the balance beam once again, and leave for work 5 minutes late. What a fun start to my work day!

I hear ya! We are really hoping to plant grass this summer, just didn't have the time or money to do it last year when we first moved in. Now we have a snow bank in our backyard that is about a foot away from being as tall as our house-even after the nice day we had yesterday! The front yard is melting fast, the back yard doesn't get much sun and doesn't seem to be melting at all. It'll be August before our ground is thawed! But I did love that weather yesterday!
