temps in the 40s today. it feels like a heat wave! as the song has it. spent some time in the back yard throwing snow around, trying to get it to melt. the definition of insanity is moving snow when snow need not be moved, taking it from where one piled it over the winter and now tossing it into and onto areas void of snow, areas you kept clear so you could move. i put a pile of it--blew it actually--onto the garden area. there is a mound of snow where the garden will go...'bout a month from now...that is easily four feet high. raked a bit in the front, that strip of grass between the road and the sidewalk, brushed the driveway...all that stamp-sand the sand truck drops through winter, much of it staying on the concrete drive. the village made at least one pass with their sander-vacuum-er collecting the stamp-sand on the roadway, the stampsand the leftover dregs of the copper mining hey-day, the crushed rock from the ore that was dug from the ground, brought to shoreline mills, and stamped to get at the copper. ooga booga.
no reports of snow in the forecast...maybe we can safely say that that is a thing of the past and we won't see anymore now until late October possibly, November for sure, December we'll be buried again. here's a few images from last week out on the big lake, Superior, at Big Traverse, an...ice shove I think they called it.

save all that ice for summer!
aww thanks for asking...no flooding for us..yahoo, since its not even fixed yet I would be a very sad face!Winter... oh please tell me your place wasn't flooded again today? This is terrible and disgusting that between the government and the local council... they still can't come up with a workable plan to fix the storm water system... it's rubbish and very unfair.
I hope (((you and your family))) are okay... xox
