Spring Mud!

Now that spring time has brought us MUD, we complain again!  Dah! Can't we ever be pleased with the weather?  We're all happy that it is starting to warm up and the snow is melting.
This is what we have left of snow.  Just remains of the hugh piles of snow.  Last night all the standing water finally soaked into the ground.  Here is what our yard looks like now where we drive in.   

I drove on the grassey area, and now I sure have made a mess!

This is usually where we park, and I had moved to the grassy area so I wouldn't have to step in mud!  The water soaked into the ground now, due the the rain helping to take the frost out of the ground.  Not all frost is gone, but the standing water sure left our yard. 

Now we need some sunshine to dry things up more, so we can level this area off and bring in more gravel!

Now to wash my car, and clean the inside.  The only trouble is, I'm sure we're not done with winter and snow yet.  March and April can still bring a lot of snow!

Have a great Sunday everyone!

Oh you poor thing. What a mess to deal with. I remember those days growing up on the farm and getting stuck every spring in the mud pits. I look forward to the warmth of spring, but dread the slop it creates. My car needs a good bath too. We usually get a big snow in March so I think I will wait.

The Midwest has had Springlike weather for the last couple of weeks. Everything thawed and dried out. But now we're having rain and mud. The weatherman forecasted 60 degree weather for next week, but we are to expect more snow the following weekend. So I expect to see more people with the sniffles. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

It will be awhile before we can blade and smooth out the driveways... We still have lots of puddles!

We've got a lot of rain -- would have been 30" if it had been snow and the winds are still fierce. I'm eager for a little sunshine, hopefully later in the week. Glad that we're just about to spring. Still smiling at your piggy pictures.
