I woke around 2 AM and looked out the back window to the yard that has been snow covered for so many weeks. Much to my delight I could see the bare earth and the bushes and trees that I had planted last Spring. I started thinking that maybe I would find early bulbs pushing their bold green tips into the light or muscari peeking up or Lenten roses in their shy blooming. I turned over and went back to sleep smiling. Then 4mhours later I woke in the cold light of dawn and looked out--hard to believe and harder to accept-- the ground was again covered in white and the snow was still falling.
So now my dreams of rising with the Spring and actualy getting my car that has been abandoned in my driveway since December to start again are being severely tested. I still hope that on the great Saint's Day I will be able to get to see Aunt Anna and celebrate with her. The Irish flag did not go out today because of the snow storm. But I am back online and the problem of access to the internet seems to have resolved itself after I shut the FIOS connection off and on. SO I can blog again.
This has been a long, frigid, and snowy winter in the Bucket. How have you gotten through it?
