Clean Snow

The snow was starting to get that all used up dirty old sock look. It had shades of brown and grey, some spots of black dirt were seen momentarily in the nearby fields. I said “Well that won’t last.”  It didn’t.

It snowed most of yesterday and there are still a few flakes floating around yet this morning.

My snow stick shows a gain of a little more than an inch of wintery wonder, that has now covered the icy spots that were left after the melt and made them more slippery than snot on a door knob.

We are way north of where the multiple inches of snow went through over the weekend. We have enough snow..I wonder when this snow bank will be melted away..I wonder when the snow stick will show only grass? I wonder when spring will come?

Would you like to guess? Should I carve something and then give it to the person that guesses closest to the day?

What day will my florescent green Smokey Bear ruler be free of snow and ice when it is placed on the ground next to the snow stick?    Leave me a comment with your guess…only one guess per person..so make it a good one.  A warm rain could wipe out that snow stick in no time at all.. a snowstorm could add to it’s days.

Now what shall I carve..you will just have to wait and see:)

Here are the guess so far..mostly from my blogspot blog.

    I love my Christmas ornament, so I’m going to try again! Spring will come to your yard (and stick) on April 24, 2011. We got 12 inches in this last blast – nice and clean-looking again.

    I am going to go with an early date…March 21st. I have said all winter that we will have an early spring and I’m sticking to it and so will your stick :) That is our youngest daughter’s birthday so maybe it’s a lucky date too. (Mom to 2 Border Collies) Personally I have enjoyed our old fashioned winter of lots of storms and snow. I know I am in the minority. I just don’t want any loved ones traveling during those bad days. Spring will be here before we know it! Look forward to your spring wild flowers again :)
