Waiting for Spring

The tree trimmers for the power company came by last month to trim our big trees and offered to cut down the row of bushes we had in front that were mostly dead and full of honeysuckle and poison ivy.  Mom took them up on their offer since it was free and they were able to do it that morning.  Sure saved us a lot of work!

Early Morning Shots

For the second time in a row we have a bit of snow on the ground and none on the roads.  So far we've had ice twice on everything but the roads.  Wonder how much longer we can be so lucky!
