Mark it Down!

April 22nd, 2008....the snow is finally gone from my front yard. It took 80 degrees today to do it, but it is finally gone. Oh, did I mention that I had to spend the last week chipping away at the 4 foot piles, spreading it around the yard to get the sun to melt it a little quicker? Today finally ends the 150 consecutive days of snow covering my lawn. I was beginning to feel like I should be on "Nightline".

"Scott's Lawn Held Hostage, Day 149, Hello, I'm Ted Koppell....."

In honor of my grass being freed from the grip of it's icy shackles, I'd like to share a few images that always warm me up.

I'm really going to enjoy this summer. It's been a long time coming.

oh the ups and downs of Blogger...

Glad to hear you finally got rid of the snow. I can't quite imagine 4' piles...so much for so long. Ugh.

Love the water photos.
