Mild Winter in Nyack

Dated: January 30 2012

This winter season has been so confused!  This year in Nyack and vicinity we had snow in October and then 50+ degree temperatures in January! My snow shovel is feeling neglected, as it has only been out of the garage once. My rhododendron is totally confused and is starting to bloom, the roses that were cut back in the fall are starting to grow again.

Don't get me wrong - I enjoy the lack of cold and snow, but I also miss it. A snowy day is a good excuse to curl up in front of the fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book - you can't go anywhere, so you might as well enjoy it, right? And it is so quiet and peaceful during a snowstorm!  The end result is that everything is covered with a pristine blanket of white (until the plows come through and churn it up with whatever was on the street before the storm and make it a "salt & pepper" mix)  Most of all, my 2 chocolate labs LOVE the snow - making tracks, digging for tennis balls that got hidden under the snow, running around in it, biting at the flakes as they come down (TJ is even more a "whack-a-doodle" in the snow than he normally is!)  

So, as I sit, looking out my window in Nyack at the blue skies, bright sunshine, and temperatures 20 degrees above normal, I kinda miss the typical winter scene.  What I don't miss, is shoveling it, though!   Enjoy!
