I know you probably get sick of hearing me complain
about our slow spring this year...
but I gotta VENT!
Today, April 19th we are in the middle of yet ANOTHER blizzard, folks!
And, we have not had the pleasure of ANY of this past winter's snow
even melting yet...
so that means we have YET to see bare ground since last OCTOBER!!!
Count them: 7 months (going on EIGHT) with all white on our ground.
Luckily in a week, I am heading to another tropical vacation to get away from it!
My nephew is having a destination wedding in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
I can't TELL you how badly I need to be at the beach for a week.

My only hope is that by the time we get back the snow will have melted during our absence!

Hope with me that by the second week in May
we thaw out enough
here for us to do so!
I love this part of the country with ALL my heart, but I am getting
