Is that rocks I see?

feb 2015 013

After several days of very spring like weather with temperatures nearing 60 degrees, the ice has finally begun to melt. Today we could see rocks!

feb 2015 007Mornings have been a bit chilly but I have not had to build a fire in THREE days!

feb 2015 009The ice is still thick though and remains.  Water has flowed down the driveway for days but Ii am still unable to drive up it.  If the weather holds up for a few more days I might just be able to make it.

feb 2015 011The sky has been blue today.  The birds are beginning to return, the robins have been seen and spring time springs have been begun to flow higher up the mountains.  If Have seen buds on some of the younger trees and little green plants are starting to poke up through the forest floor cover.  As wonderful as it is if we do not get more snow and more winter the forest fires this summer will be horrific.  I cant wait to get to work on the garden beds, to walk on dirt that is not covered in ice and get plants in my hands, but I really hope we get more moisture.

    Still a lot of ice at your place, considering how warm it has been. I totally agree with you concerning the need for moisture. Personally, I am not eager to see it so warm so soon.
