Snow Art

Is February anyone’s favorite month? It’s certainly not mine, and especially so since we moved to New York state. It gets cold in a normal winter and February is especially bad…most of the time. There are compensations of course, even with the storm that came through early in the month. Beastly cold, down well below zero at night and not much better during the day. But on a 2 degree F morning I came out to find this snow art on the driveway. Thirty mile an hour gusts will do that when the snow’s not too thick.

Now, just over a week later the daytime temps are in the 40’s and rumored to hit 50 before the week’s out. That’s practically a heat wave. No doubt I’ll have to crank up the snow blower again before it’s over, but at least it’s a short month. Still, I have to go with the Bard in regards to February: “I do desire we may be better strangers.”
