I too am getting antsy. My eyes are constantly wandering to the woods while I am driving looking for freshly dead elm trees, ash trees, old fruit trees, etc. We have been getting very good precipitation the last several weeks and have about 4 inches of snow on the ground. That will help, I see the possibility of snow Tuesday and warming by the weekend. All good. We havebeen lucky that every time the ground cover snow melted, we got more snow cover within a day or two. Winter evaporation has been minnimal. Now I just need to start walking and getting the wood legs into shape ( and lose a little gut too!}.
