"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

As the Worm Turns

Well, you see, here it is March. The daffodils are coming up and the crocus ( crocus? crocuses? croci? Whatever.) are blooming. But then yesterday we got what you see below. No, the trees don't have dandruff, and yes, those little white specks visible in the trees are snow. It was snowing.

And those few flakes turned overnight into this...

Okay, it isn't another 11 or 12 inches, thank goatness, but it is still quite ccccccold! At any rate, when I see this guy coming next year, I fully intend to tell him to keep right on going. After all, "...the smallest worm will turn, being trodden on..." - William Shakespeare. (Henry VI, Part 3), and I think we've been 'trodden' on quite enough for one year.

Now, isn't that a pretty lil' fuzzy wuzzy. Please add my name to the lengthy list of venerable worms that are tired of the dang snow.
We got about an inch and a half this morning and, after our almost 60 degree day on Friday, I about had a coronary. Ugh.
