We had our first thunderstorm last night and it took much of our snow, just like that! Today I can see the potential firewood laying on the ground once again, something that I haven't seen since December and still couldn't see much yesterday. And now that the frost is coming out of the ground, some of the dead ones are tipping over, like they do every year. Looks like I'm done cutting standing dead trees for who knows how long, and back to my normal routine of cleaning up the wood on the ground. Overnight my crocuses popped up! And not just the crocuses, but my winter onions too! Still waiting to see a robin though. I heard on the news today that they are seeing them only 35 miles away.
