    Removing the final bits of snow

    Am I crazy to be going out and removing the last bits of snow from my yard with a shovel so it can dry out? I am too impatient to let it go on it's own. My gardens closest to the road are still under snow.

    How did you spend St Paddy's Day?

    Did you drink any green beer? They had a beer call at work and were serving green beer, I couldn't bring myself to drink it, as I am not a big fan of beer in general, let along when it is green too.
