I am getting just a little tired of the stuff we do around here to keep out palmetto bugs and fire ants. It's called winter, but this year somebody ordered the large economy size. Like a lot of other people on the eastern seaboard of North America, we are at this moment getting a large distribution of frozen water.

It's not bad enough that it falls on us; the wind keeps picking it up and moving it around. With 500+ feet of driveway and multiple storms so far this winter, I have no desire to calculate how many tons of snow I've attempted to move with an increasingly cranky snow blower. I have learned one thing though. It doesn't matter which way you have the snowblower pointed; the wind always changes to blow it back into your face.

It's probably a corollary to the law that says it doesn't matter where you sit around a campfire - the smoke always ends up blowing into your eyes eventually.

As far as waiting for the return of robins to signal spring, no such luck. We have some diehard ones that tough it out all winter around my house. Right now, they're as deep into the thickets as they can get - and they're angry.

Weather like this is a good excuse to sit at my Mac and turn old vinyl into CDs.
