Spring Comes Slowly To The Mountain Top

The weather on the mountain top has been above freezing for three days now, and the snow is slowly beginning to melt away. 

We're at that 'ugly' stage, where the mounds of snow along the roads are all blackened by road dirt, and the trees are still bare. Mud season is right around the corner.

Winter Lingers On....And A Very Close Call

All over blogland and Instagram I see lovely photos of flowers, sunshine, and spring. 

Meanwhile, here on the mountain top, we are still buried in snow and ice.

Let The Sun Shine In!

Despite the fact that it is still very much winter in our neck of the woods, the sun this past weekend was beyond glorious!

Combined with the change to the clocks for daylight savings time and this is one happy blogger!

Finding A Little Summer Amidst The Snow

As you know, we got a whopper of a storm last week, and another on Thursday, which means we will not see grass for quite some time. 

Le sigh. 

However, I figured out a way to bring a little summer into these winter days - and it was easy peasy, my favorite!

Winter Storm Riley

We had quite the Nor'easter this past weekend! Winter Storm Riley settled over the mountain top and dumped 3+ FEET of snow!

The entire mountain top as well as many neighboring villages were without power for 30+ hours, and some areas are still waiting for power to be restored.

Early Spring Garden Chores

I know I said spring is a long way off on the mountain top. Yet, as I see so many blog friends posting photos of spring shrubs in bloom in their areas, I can't help but start to get excited to spend some time outdoors in my garden, taking care of my spring gardening chores.
