Harbingers of Spring Part Deux

Last year I posted about things that let us know that Spring has sprung.  This is technically not an update, just my take on Spring a year later. 

Spring where I live tis the season for potholes.  Most municipalities open tip lines so that concerned citizens can report the most outrageous potholes.  They don’t actually fix the potholes, they just want to know where they should not drive.  This looks like a small hole yet it is obviously very deep.  Fortunately some good Samaritan sunk a shopping cart into the hole to warn their fellow motorists.

Bracing For Round Three

Round one gave us around thirty inches and was followed shortly by another twelve from round two.  One more day with snow and February will break the record for snowiest February of all times.  The record is predicted to be broken tomorrow after a week-long respite with above freezing temperatures and dry roads for commuting. 

A unique thing that I noticed during the recent deep freeze and mountains of snow was how many houses started gardens on their roofs.  Icicle’s were springing up all over town and hanging from gutters.  It became almost a daily chore for me to knock the new sprouts from the edge of my roof only to have them grow back the next day.
