It ain't spring yet in this neck of the woods
Last week I hired a strong young man to come shovel our porch roof. The north side of the house doesn't get much sun. After months of accumulation it was time to clear off the roof before the weight of all the snow brought it down. This big chunk of snow makes an interesting sculpture in the yard.
Just a few feet away is this monstrous icicle! We have heating tape in the corner of the roof so the snow slowly drips off to the ground. The first year we lived in the house a huge slab of ice slid off and peeled back the steel roof!
The only sign of spring around here is the longer days!
Fortunately in other parts of the world there are signs of spring. Go visit My World Tuesday to see them because they ain't here.
