Welcome February 1st. Welcome Winter storm Maximus, welcome 12+ more inches of the white stuff! Lets hope the ground hog doesn’t see his shadow tomorrow!

|Even Morton, our neighbor’s dog, looks unhappy about the extra snow!|
When did the Weather people start naming the winter storms? We had Q (literally) and now Saturn… what were the others? Did I miss the memo?
Anyway, here we are in March already and Northern Illinois woke up to more snow this morning! I know we need the moisture but I’d love to see some spring daffodils instead. I’ve got the itch to start my new garden!
And from the amount of birds I have at my feeders today, I’d say they are ready for spring too!
