TODAY IS A DAY OFF FOR BLOG365 - but oh well I actually have a thought [actually two connected thoughts] which has been a struggle lately so I guess I wont waste them.
Will it ever thaw? Will the snow stop falling?
This morning the snow is coming down hard in very fine crystals that look more like a cloud of flour than flakes. But if we have to have winter - which we do and it is a good thing for the fruit trees and farmers fields - I would prefer snow to bare brown.
One thing very interesting happening. There has been so much snow this winter that the road commissions are out of salt or nearly so. So instead of the roads being a wet sloppy mess as soon as the snow starts falling there are just patches of sand and salt at the tops of steep hills with stop signs, or on intersections at State Highways. But for the most part the roads are snow covered and we are mostly managing just fine. Hmmmm might this be a clue for a way for road commissions to save a lot of money another winter and make drivers learn to drive safely in snowy weather. hmmmmm
