daily bliss: thaw

This morning my neighbor and I spent over an hour chipping away at the inches of melting ice lining the driveway. By this afternoon, the sidewalks were filled with water, glorious water, left behind as the ice and snow melted under 40+ degree sunshine.

Trees ache to bud, bushes arch forth with new growth, and the scent of mud promises rebirth.

    I feel your pain! I'm currently in Minneapolis, but moving back home to WI at the end of this month. I flew into MKE after a vacation in FL a couple weeks ago... to a fresh 8" blanket of snow. We had to shovel the drive [at 11p] before we could get into the house!
