Winter is Losing the Battle


It was 54 degrees today and tomorrow it will be 60 degrees. I am so excited. You can almost feel Ole Man Winter losing his grip on the Earth and on our souls. We are tired of the cold and the gray days. We are tired of the ache in our bones. So we look, we look for every sign that spring in nearing. The geese have returned and I heard birds singing today. I though I would show you some photos of the beginning of Winter losing its grip.

Since Vermillion sits on Lake Erie, there are many streets but some people have waterways which freeze in winter.

In spring and summer local travel is done by boat.

    Winter hit back in UK yesterday. I hope to see the end of it soon.

  6. What a beautiful place and wonderful pictures. You’re far more tolerant of the winter than I could ever be. We are already seeing 70 some days, blooms on our trees; despite some rain and cold still in the future.

  7. It seems like Winter has returned with a vengeance here in the UK Barbara, you live in a wonderful place.. Spring will be sprung when its ready I love Spring time as the green buds burst forth with daffodils and crocus’s .. they are now being battered by the bitter wind and snow..
