Before retiring for the evening, I took a look outside...
Hhmm, maybe they weren't so far off...
...for a change.
Ah well, most of the snow which fell in January, February and the beginning of March is gone from my yard. It's still piled up in the yards of the houses across the street, which face north. But I can see that the piles are getting smaller and smaller.
I saw a video that an old comrade had posted on Facebook...
He went sledding on Saturday. With his new GoPro camera and his dog.
The dog appeared to be having a great time.
There's still a lot of snow up there in "The Kingdom" where my friend lives.
A lot of snow.
A lot of mud with a bit of snow on top.
Spring can be such a messy month.
The Northeast Kingdom is the northeast corner of the U.S. state of Vermont, comprising Essex, Orleans and Caledonia counties and having a population at the 2010 census of 64,764. In Vermont, the written term "NEK" is often used. The term "Northeast Kingdom" is attributed to George D. Aiken, former Governor of Vermont and a U.S. senator, who first used the term in a 1949 speech. The area is often referred to by Vermonters simply as "The Kingdom". WOf course I call it "The Kingdom."
I was born a Vermonter, doesn't matter that I don't live there anymore, in my heart I'm a Vermonter still.
It's probably why I get a little depressed when the last of the snow is gone.
I'll be all better once the daffodils are up.
It's why I live in New England.
