It's not truly Spring until we have seven full days without a trace of snow -- not sticking on the ground, not flakes in the air.

Monday I drove home from a wonderful weekend in Brunswick, Bath, and Bristol, Maine. It was gray, damp, and cold all weekend and I saw flakes in the air mid-day.

I drove home to Nottingham, New Hampshire via I-95 on Monday. What an incredibly TEDIOUS drive! Wind, rain, fog... Sleet as I was passing through Yarmouth, remnants of early morning snow in the grass and rock crevices around Biddeford.

The temperature kept rising, degree by degree, from 34°F in Harpswell to 39°F when I got home. Snow on the side of the road after I crossed Rte. 125 in Lee, NH and I turned into a white driveway. A very slippery hard white sludge was outside my car door as I debarked and covered the deck.

Just tired of it. A year ago it was 83°F. I'm not seeing any leaf buds on trees and damned little greening up of grass.
