Yep, saw it today, Groundhogs Day, yep, ole Phil says another 6 weeks of winter. Funny, calendar says that too. And, so did our local meteorologist. It's snowing right now, that kind of slow, relaxing, pretty snow. Not going to get a whole lot...hopefully (Yeah, me saying "hopefully" about snow! ) it will be enough to cover the grass. It is making the Blue Spruces in my front yard look pretty with their "necklaces" of white. And of course, the dogs have been having a field day with it.

February 2, yep, Spring is getting closer. Starting to feel that impatience build. I've got to get new screen, spline, and a spline tool for the screen door to the patio. Dogs kind of tore that up last summer. Hopefully this summer they don't do a repeat. Anyway....I'm more than ready to put up the snow shovel and break out the mosquito spray.

I am in no hurry for Spring. We just got our first winter weather event last Saturday.

It looks like ole Phil won't get laid tonight—roflmao! We've been having wet, cold and freezing temps, but it's a gorgeous day today and the daffodil leaves have already come out.

Our state slogan is: "Winter Wonder Land" and should be changed to: I Wonder Why I Haven't Left This Winter Land Yet!"

I'm ready for Spring!! I'm sick of being cold and paying high power bills!!!!

My daffodils were starting to come up but I'm sure they got bit back with the snow last Friday and Saturday. There's still a bunch of snow in my yard so I can't see my daffs... it's not been warm enough to melt all the snow.

I bet your blue spruces are beautiful though sugar!!

sugar, could do easily urself using a narrow, long screwdriver. start in the corner, then work down and around. can also use fabric for the screen.

another option would be getting a new screen part from habitat from humanity re-store (there may be one near you?)

IMO, go to local housing store rather than franchise (home depot or lowe's).

-------------------
to store the dogs from tearing it up; use foil (plain aluminum) and wire it up to shock them a bit. can do w/ an old car battery; no, won't kill them; they would learn to leave it alone after having it shock them a time or two. if no $ worries, could go and get the wire fence (from a feed and seed) OR put an ad for a used one on CL (craigslist) or yahoo freecycle group and wire it up that way. is easy, like running speaker wires for a radio.

hope this helps?! local county ext agent is available for any questions on how to do (listed in phone book; their services are free or nominal; we pay for it w/ taxes)

Seriously, Shawn... It's Ohio. I think he lied.
Although it really hasn't been that bad of a winter.........so far.
