January Thaw

firewood, anyone?

As you can see by this picture, our snow is completely gone. The January Thaw has completely removed all of our snow... outside. What you cannot see, is that the snow is now in our basement, to the tune of 3 inch deep water. It's a nice break from the ice & snow outside, except... when I go wading I like it to be on the beach in July, not in my basement in January.

The other bonus of the January Thaw, is that it often brings gusty winds and rips trees out of the ground and throws them across the driveway. Everyone should be woken up at 6:30 by hearing "MOM, we lost a huge tree and it's in the driveway!" Never a dull moment around this house, I'll tell ya.

And we still have 8-10 weeks left of serious winter weather ahead of us. Spring is looking really good about now.
