We are having the best winter this year – not only is it snowing, but it’s snowing on a day that was a holiday anyway, so I don’t have to stress over whether I can get to work. The woodstove is keeping the house toasty warm, the dogs and I have already been out playing in the snow, and it’s actually warmer than it was a good bit of last week.
Check your gardens if you haven’t already, and be watching for the spring bloomers. It’s supposed to be in the 60s in central Virginia this weekend – I bet we get some early flowers! (I did notice, this past week, the camellias in Capitol Square bravely blossoming despite the shivery cold.) My own camellia still has that dessicated look evergreens get in extreme cold, but the flower buds are just showing a bit of color.
Get out and enjoy the snow. That’s what snow days are for. 🙂
