Yet, as spring inches ever closer, we ought not forget the impact of winter snows. This pic has been used before, but is appropriate as ever. Son Cameron is clad in his warm ruby parka as he pushes our small Toro snow thrower down the driveway. The gray of winter is offset by the brilliance of red (and though unseen, any Toro is red, too). The seasons will change, really!
Winter is not complete. The day of the latest snow I have known was April 6, 1982, the Tuesday before Easter that year. There was a 12 inch (30 cm) blizzard. So it can happen again, although I remain optimistic!
Happy Valentine's Day!!
