It seems like it's been forever since we've seen much sun where I live. The winter is usually bleak, but this one has been harsher than usual. We've had less sun, more snow, and colder temperatures than I can remember having in a number of years. It started snowing here on December 4 and except for two brief thaws that gave us approximately two days of some patches of grass, the ground has been covered in snow. That's nearly three months of constant snow on the ground. Even for this area of the country, that's unusual.
Well, we've finally seen a bit of sun! It didn't last long (one day last weekend; one day this weekend), but it's something. The sun is getting higher in the sky and felt wonderfully warm today. Here's to hoping for some more sun soon! *raises can of Diet Coke* I need the snow to melt before St. Patrick's Day. See, I bought silly things to put on Dahlia for a photo shoot and somehow it just won't look Irish if the pictures are taken in a foot of snow!
