All within Eight Days!
And yet, not many who have lived in Michigan find this unusual.
Eight days ago I was using my cleats
a walking stick with a sharp end to stab the ice
and a torch to get the gate latch open
A week ago the snow came. Oh boy, did it come!
A muck rake is a fine snow shovel.to clear a path for the manure wheelbarrow.
If you peek through the bushes below, you can see Rick plowing the driveway.
And now after days with temperatures in the 40's, the snow has melted down to the ice hiding beneath. Ergo the combo of ice and mud.
I'd much prefer a winter of snow, just snow, please.
