March Forward Minnesota

 
 
While many of you
have been sharing your
lovely
blooms springing
to life,
I thought
I'd show you my
March
in
Minnesota.
 
 
 
 
This is part of my
driveway.
You can see lots of snow left
and rain coming down in
buckets.
Please note the
lovely (?)
reflections of snow.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Each spring,
this
(not so)
affectionately
becomes
known as
Lake Duderstadt.
 
Anyone ready for a dip?

Seriously Jill, my driveway is WAY worse, if that makes you feel any better! I'm in East Central MN - we got rain mixed with snow this past weekend. Our driveway goes downhill towards our house - why would anyone build a house downhill from the road??? Anyway, my grandson Jack told me to walk like a penguin on the ice - very wise words, I've found out! :) Love the photo!

Ew rain and slush do not make a good pairing. I hope it dries up for you soon and maybe even the sun will shine. :)

Sometime I hate it here with the long hot dry summer but I don't know if I could take your weather very long either.
