It’s almost gone.
It’s finally beginning to look and feel a lot like Spring!
Can I hear a Hallelujah?
There are still a few piles of snow hanging around the low-lying areas and Lake Michigan is not clear of the ice just yet but it’s slowly disappearing.
The weather is warming up and little spring flowers are dotting the landscape with morsels of beautiful color.
Last night we returned home from our weekend up north to severe tornado warnings and storm sirens – so bad that we had to hunker down in our basement until the threat passed. Fortunately we escaped unscathed – save for our mailbox – our poor mailbox that just can’t seem to catch a break.
Unfortunately there was extensive damage to houses and trees just a few miles away from us. It’s the first time since we moved here to this house back in 2005 that we had to actually head for the basement because of a tornado warning.
Today is windy and the sky is full of clouds dark grey stormy in color but it is calm and the sun is poking out between the clouds letting us know that it is watching.
Spring is here.
