Rain in winter sucks but I love it in spring like late March early April. Those soggy wet mild days lead to beautiful green grass in the rest of April and May.

We got 11 inches from a storm yesterday. Finished all the driveway shoveling today. A lot of work but boy is it beautiful! My aunt in Florida was on the phone yesterday and asked "aren't you sick of the snow yet?" And I said "Sick of it? I ain't even gone skiing yet!" Ask me in March if this snow is still sticking around if I am sick of it lol but it's only January right now. I am loving all this snow we got.

But on the whole topic of "seasons" me and my roommate were talking about this upcoming spring and all the garden and landscape plans. When we moved to this house the property managers hadn't done jack for landscaping. We had nothing but weeds instead of grass. When spring comes and the frost date has passed, we are planting grass, my tulips will hopefully sprout and bloom and I will make the flower bed look nice. It's not just fall and winter I love, it's the whole package deal. I enjoy the snow but I look forward to the flowers, then I look forward to summer nights by the fire, and going to apple orchards in the autumn. It's a beautiful cycle.

I wish we had a chance for rain like that.

If AZ weren't sucking the Colorado river dry, it'd be a glorified cat litter box.

I enjoy the fact that I live in a four-season climate. It is nice to see the overall landscape throughout varying different times of the year. The same hiking path or a walk across the town will look drastically different across all four seasons. I also enjoy that there is always a break from the heat and the humidity to look forward to in the fall.

Remember that not all four-season climates are created equal. Denver, Yakutsk in Russia, and Nashville are all considered four-season climates but they are quite different. Some will have one season that lasts a bit longer and/or more extreme than the other three, some will vary a bit with precipitation, and some four-season climates have to deal with quite a bit of other severe weather (e.g. hail, tornadoes, windstorms, etc.).

Agree about the changing landscape. I just got back from a fun little walk around my local park. It's so surreal seeing all the playground equipment buried under a foot of snow. What's also cool is that in the spring all of this will melt and it will reveal all kinds of things that one may not have realised were under the snow.

So, today the high was about 55 with abundant - brilliant even - sunshine and blue, blue skies. It was almost enough to make me want to work in the yard but I resisted temptation because I know it's going to get very cold again, definitely below freezing again. Hopefully though, the ice and snow are done with.

I cleaned out the flower beds and all that jazz in December and all the leaves are raked up so everything is nice and clean but bare. I can hardly wait for spring and spring planting! Hoping that all my hydrangeas make it!

It's only January hun lol. Even in Texas that's way too early to be prepping for spring. Back in 2015 we had a mildish January and most of February was mild and then boom... snow came and came and lasted til early March! You just gotta settle down, remember each season is 3 months even in Texas y'all!

I am actually really looking forward to gutting that flower bed and getting rid of those ferns myself. Of course that flower bed is buried under deep snow at the moment and that's fine with me. It'll be spring before ya know it. Time goes by too fast these days.

Oh I know - I always want to get out and work in the yard when we have a mild week in January, but I resist the temptation because I know it will get cold again. For about three days at a time in between the warming trends. Today the high is supposed to be around 60, with more sun. RESIST TEMPTATION. Next week the highs are supposed to be in the 40s with lows in the 20s a couple of days so I need to just chill! Literally and figuratively I guess.
