Hanging on

I like snow. I do. I love how the world looks after freshly fallen snow. I love how the blanket of snow insulates the ground, keeping the frost from driving too deep into the soil, and freezing out the little critters that live below ground.

It is now April. April means spring. And my soul longs for warmth. My hands are yearning to dig into moist dirt. However, Winter continues to hang on. Snow continues to fall. These pictures were taken this morning from the visitor center.

Of course as snow continues to fall, water fills our streams, rivers and lakes. And that is a good thing.

Hang on! The winds of spring are coming, and they will win!

Yay for a happy attitude about spring snow! I've been hearing much whining about it and I'm about sick of that.

What lovely, snowy photos. I agree though, April means spring!
