Hope Springs Eternal?   5 comments

Hope Springs Eternal? Or is it Spring Hope is Eternal. No, no, I’ve got it! We all hope spring is going to arrive, if not eternally, at least starting Thursday. According to the calendar, and the constant reassurances by the meteorologists, that’s when it’s scheduled to arrive  – on Thursday. Will  it? We’ll see. But one thing we know for sure: The Groundhog was right!

To be fair though, winter is leaving but he’s taking baby steps up here in the north country;  bigger steps in and down toward the city. Witness his retreat southward along the Hudson River:

Boy, 16 miles can make a big difference, can’t it?

As for the House of Mars, we’re making progress (I guess). Remember my clothes line back in February?

  4. Loved your meditation on the snow. Reminded me of the poet “where are the snows of yesteryear?” We’ll be saying that soon.

  5. Lovely post, and fascinating photos of the Hudson. You are so right – what a difference 16 miles makes. I wouldn’t have thought it. Love your cat, too.
