Aftermath of winter storm Vulcan…. (Vulcan? did a Trekkie choose this name?)

Guess what we got more of….

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!

 

 

 

 

 

Snow of Saturn

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!
