I am happy to report that our snow is slowly melting and some of the greenery is revealing itself. I had to take a little walk in all the squishiness.

Our road turns into a dirt road for about 3 km and it becomes a playground for idiot truck and ATV drivers. They make me nervous with all their noise. The PM and the wee ones were on the side of the road, the kids playing with little boats in the melting rivers, when the PM heard a bunch of trucks turn the corner. They started driving on the edge of the road, tearing up the grass and little streams. The PM got the kids up on the snow just as the trucks came over the hill. The PM stayed on the road with a disgusted look on her face. The trucks had the good sense though to move back into road and passed my family crawling. There were five trucks in all, each one packed with idiots, probably drunk too. The PM is a pacifist but during these times she feels like a mother bear and she sends silent curses through the mud hoping for stuckage and ruined truck parts.

Here I am listening to all the ruckus about 1 km away.

I continued my snooping, checking out all the birdie smells. The melting is revealing tons of hidden bird food.

Hmmm.... What do we have here? A squirrel hole? I wanted to go investigate further but the PM told me to get going.

I smell you, you little red devil.

Miss Shady Lady had to make her appearance too but she didn't last too long. Too soggy.

Spring is just around the corner.

Our spring bulbs are just beginning to come into flower - they are so late this year with all the snow and freesing temperatures here too. We don't usually get this for such a long time as we have. We are pleased that you snow is melting now and hope your spring is not far away.
luv Hannah & Lucy xx xx
