Winter is stubborn
Holding tightly to the cold
Spring waits patiently
I do wonder if spring will ever actually get a grip on things.
It’s snowing again today. Right now as I am writing this. It’s not heavy, but it’s sticking. I guess the last couple days were cold enough to cool things down. The previous storm stuck for a while but then melted pretty much all away by yesterday afternoon.
There is still, however, snow piled up in the yard from all the previous storms. It is compacted and hard and frozen in some places with sheets of ice underneath from melting and freezing.
I like snow. I like watching it come down. I like looking at as it coats the ground and the trees and the rooftops. I like how it seems to make the world a little quieter.
But really, I think I’ve had enough snow for this winter just passed and now spring.
I’ve been told that the Farmer’s Almanac is predicting that the coming winter will be like the one we just had. Hoo boy. Good to know that in advance and good that we learned a few things about our new home to help us through the next one.
