Here’s my annual picture of the snowbank at the corner of Center Road and Old Mission Road – taken yesterday. This spot is always a good gauge of how much snow we’ve actually gotten, dating back to when I was a kid and previous generations, because the snow whips across that orchard there, and the county snowplows pile it up against the M37 South sign.
The last few days have been downright wintry, but it’s sunny and warm-ish again today (28 degrees), and my weather app says it’s going to be in the 30s and 40s through next week. So Spring might indeed be on the way.

I love winter and hope we have a cold and snowy March (especially since we still have a good supply of wood for the woodstove and don’t have to pay for propane anymore!), but Tim – who’s in charge of snowplowing our long and twisty driveway – feels a little differently. Ok, a lot differently.
Then again, we don’t want it to get TOO warm too early and have the buds start popping out on the cherry and apple trees, so I feel vindicated in my winter love. I do it for the farmers. 🙂
