Hi there Mary,
Well winter made it's last gasp this week. The snowstorm that on Tuesday dumped 12 inches on Fargo tried it here and could only rain for most of the day. On Tuesday evening when we were trying to get to the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre to watch Seven Brides for Seven Brothers it turned to snow. It was a nasty drive but we made it and when we went out there was only about 1 inch on the ground.
This is what I saw out the upstairs window the next morning just before the sun came up.
However today, Sunday the 15th, it is beautiful and sunny and about 60 degrees out. Everthing is melting and wet and muddy and it is just wonderful out.
I haven't seen any trees budding but by the end of the week it should be really nice. Hard to believe it was 3 below four days ago. With a wind chill of -24.
Even the people at Sunnyside Gardens have been out unpacking pots and birdbaths.
Here is a picture of Alice watching sports on TV with Jim. She looked so happy I had to take the picture.
That's all for now.
