drama going on here; leastways, not much to write about. We paid our annual pound of flesh to Uncle Sam. Was a bigger chunk this year, but doable.
The weather remains calm & warm (for us), with highs approaching 50 every day, and lots of sunshine.
Sunrise today was at 6:34 am, and sunset will be at 9:24 pm. It gets light for 40 minutes prior to actual sunrise, and stays light for at least a half-hour after the sun goes down. The summer solstice is only two months away. Now we need the grass to turn green, or leaves to come out, or something.
With overnight lows finally staying above freezing, the remaining snowbanks should melt faster. The one by our driveway is only about three feet high, now.
Speaking of snow, the weatherman mentioned, this morning, that we never did get the normal amount of snow this year. We're about 6 or 7 inches below normal for the season, which isn't too bad. 65" instead of 72" is ... well, okay. That 165" we received a couple years back was taking a good thing a bit too far, though. :)
