Come on Spring!!!

Didn't I just say I was ready for spring?  Guess I jinxed it, because we woke up to snow on Saturday morning, and then it turned to freezing rain.  Ice built up all day Saturday and Sunday; an inch and a half thick!

We have trees down everywhere, and branches litter the yard.  It's going to be such a big clean up!  Worst of all, my 1965 Mustang, which had been planned to be a project car, lost it's back window and received a big dent in the top!  Boo hoo! :(

During all this, the power was out all day Sunday, and we had 5 lambs born during this time; a set of twins, and triplets at 3:30 a.m.!  Going up to the barn to check on the sheep overnight felt like I was risking my life (literally!) as chunks of ice as big as a basketball fell out of the trees!

I am SO ready for spring now!  We need a nice weekend to begin the huge job of clean up!  At least I'll get a bonfire out of the deal, and maybe a s'more or two?!  Gotta look on the bright side!

Prim (warm, sun-shiny!) blessings to you!

Sorry to hear of the damage done and the power outage but I do love the photos you shared of the ice covered trees :)
Happy though that you didn't get hurt heading to the barn!
I know you aren't alone in wanting spring to hurry up.
