At last, a snow worth its salt
Our Groundhog Day snow is the first one to give us a proper covering since we moved here in 2006. The wet flakes attached themselves to our dogwood trees at the side of the house giving us spring-like faux blossoms.
In the photo at right you can see our white boxer, Willie, quizzically looking out the window. Willie is 3 years old so this is his first snow.
I had intentions of sowing grass seed when the forecasters first told us about the possibility of snow last week. Just before a heavy wet snow is always the best time to sow grass because it pulls the seed down the correct distance into the ground. Then we were told the storm was going around us so we wouldn't see any accumulation. Alas, the seed is still in the sack.
