Welcome to the fourth day of Spring

The time is now 3:30 PM, EDST. It is almost 4 hours since my last post, this morning. The weatherman was right. It is snowing again. Took Ruff and Axl out to get the mail and they were somewhat confused. Can't say I blame them. Yesterday the Sun was out and the temperature was in the 50's.
I just remembered something the weatherman said last night. He said the latest we have had snow in this area was the first week of May. Now that is encouraging, isn't it.

The eternal battle between Spring and Winter goes on.

Well, March 21st has come and gone. That happened to be the first day of Spring, in case you wondered. We are wondering about it, too. Wondering where the heck it went. The weatherman said it is supposed to snow this afternoon. Not much more than a dusting but enough to add insult to injury. So if we can't do anything about the weather at least we can makes jokes about it.
Like this:
So what do we all do to deal with it? Well, we stay inside and give thanks we haven't had to mow the lawn yet. I still have the snow shovel standing outside the front door. The Rottweilers are doing the best they can, just like the humans. I wish I could sleep like they do.
Looking on the good side, the weather is supposed to get warmer next week and the predicted temperature for the opening day of the baseball season is supposed to be 70 degrees. I'll believe it when I see it.

Rottweilers love it and the humans are getting sick of it.

We had another snowstorm last night! This was the biggest of the winter season so far. Only good part is that it wasn't as big as the weather forecasters first predicted. But still, another 5-inches of snow has put us very close, if not passed, the all-time record for snow in this area. I lost count when we started getting close to 50-inches of snow because it came down in about 15 different storms. But I can't really complain when all of our Rottweilers are enjoying it so much. And I am very glad to be retired and do not have to fight my way into work every day.

Just a few more pictures of our backyard this afternoon while Ruffin and Axl went out to explore.

Wow, not a footprint in sight. Ruff was the first to trek upon the virgin snow.
From the kitchen window it does look pretty.
