The big "melt down" is about to begin!
They say that the temperature will rise to above zero by Wednesday of this week.
I say, "It's about time!"
Last night, it went down to almost 20 Celcius--BELOW---zero--
That was very frosty looking this morning , in the dark , when I looked outside , as I "sparked" at my computer.
I always figure that summer has arrived when the snow disappears.
Some years, all our snow is gone by the end of March.
Maybe this will be one of those years---
Usually, the ice leaves the lake by the 23rd of April. There is about a week, before the ice sinks to the bpottom of the lake, where it breaks away from the shoreline, and huge long chunks of it drift around the lake. If you are close to it, you can here the ice tingle--like fine China.
Right now , we have very little snow on the roof of our home. It has mostly all melted. They predict rain by the end of this week--which means -----the ""big melt down"" might begin!
I find it amazing , how fast winter disappears, even here in the north.
With rain, and milder nights, we can see Spring in a couple of weeks , at the most.
That means walking on the back road without the ice , with my XM radio, and sometimes the Germans (as in dogs) beside me.
As I sit here typing, I even hear more birds singing outside , and soon the clock will ""Spring"" ahead.
The seasons--they are a-changing, me thinks------
An added thought , that to-morrow in International Women's Day--a good time to think of our Grandmothers, and Mothers, and how they paved the way for us.
Right now, a gal's got to do what a gal's giot to do---and that is---- get supper ready----Hopefully I can control the portions once again----
Oh man!--so much to think about!
