Where is Siouxland’s Spring, Woodbury County

25 Mar

During the last couple of days Siouxland has been getting more snow. Not like other parts of the Midwest, or Mid-Atlantic states, but still. Enough already. Spring has officially arrived already. And Winter is supposed to be “done”. The rodent supposedly saw his shadow back in February. You can’t trust anyone anymore.  I like snow. And had it been say 10 inches or a foot, I would have grumbled, but at least I could have gone snow shoeing. Instead, it’s just chilly outside. And with the wind gust, it’s really chilly.

 

I think even the geese are confused. They are still flying, but which direction? North for the warmer weather, or south because Winter has not finished? I did some some robins the other day. A brother of mine out East said he saw some there a week ago. And thought maybe they got buried under the snow out there. I am guessing they found a nice pub and are hanging out until they can frolic in the sunshine. The weather people are predicting temperatures in the 50’s by the end of this week, and I’m rooting for them. Of course, I always root for the underdog.
