Will summer ever come?
This has been the winter that just won't let go. Just two days after a lovely springlike day that saw crocuses blooming, we got whomped with another snowstorm. The forecast as of last night was 3 to 6 inches of snow for the region, and 1-3 inches of snow in the city. Hoo-boy were they wrong! I measured 8 inches of snow on my back deck this morning. The above photo shows the view from the deck this morning. Meanwhile here is the deck itself:

In fact before you know it, we'll all be complaining about the heat and humidity. In just a few months this will be the view from my back deck (perhaps minus a few of the palms!):

In the meantime, all I can do is dream, and keep reminding myself that spring is right around the corner!
