"It's Starting to look a lot like. . . . . . . . . .Spring!"
Now my computer is working again, here are some photos of the lack of snow this year just before Christmas. There is even less than the little shown in this pictures. Normally, there is a foot or more of snow on the ground at this time. We had that a couple of weeks ago but since then the temperatures have been consistently above 0C. Peggy, in North Carolina will have to wait for me to send her some snow! We are having a North Carolinian kind of Christmas.
Perhaps, when Winter does come it will come with a vengence, ie a big snow storm and the temperture dropping below -20C and staying there for two months.
I couldn't resist getting Paulo, the peacock in a picture. He thinks he is a chicken and often displays his growing tail to attracted some hen. How I sympathize with the frustration of fruitless romance!
