Ta-dah, ta-dah! The patio is officially snow free, a full ten days before we wanted it to be that way.
This is how the patio looked yesterday morning, with just the smallest patch of snow on one edge.
Here is a closer look at that stubborn little patch.
Stubborn or not, that patch’s days were numbered, and by late afternoon, the snow was gone, baby, gone. Note the hay on the walk rimmed with snow. No, our yard is not totally snow free, but it sure is good to see the patio once again.
Snow-out from the patio put in me in such a good mood that I decided to sweep the driveway. Hundreds and hundreds of little cones had fallen, the most I’ve ever seen in our driveway in spring. What a nice feeling of accomplishment to have the driveway free of those little cones.
And maybe, just maybe, Clif and I will take down the Christmas lights next week. It is time, that’s for sure.
