Here in the Midwest temperatures continue to plummet and remain without a break. I can't remember the last time the combination of snow, freezing, more snow, more freezing and so on created a front yard that didn't even leave the footprints of a squirrel. It was surreal to see my grandson walk across it like he was walking on water while my common sense expected him to sink to his waist. My sympathies goes out to the people in the East, especially Boston, who have been dealt a bad hand this winter.
So while another ten days of temps below freezing are predicted, I need a glimmer of hope that Spring will be here before we all go crazy. Close your eyes and picture sitting on a deck or patio with potted plants soaking up the sun while you enjoy a cold, yes I said cold ice tea. Here's something to help you form that image.
