February Rains bring ...

This has been a most unusual winter for weather, alternating between icy cold and warm, between snow and rain mixed with some sunshine. A nice cover of snow layed on the ground this morning but this afternoon the only snow remaining is where it was piled from shoveling. The warmer weather and too much rain has melted the snow once again and turned the back yard into standing puddles of water.

Unlike April showers which bring May flowers, this rain is expected to bring only more flooding in the low lands and of course more snow later this evening.
