After a brief snowstorm a few weeks ago, my yard has returned to a very odd, very-seasonal-inappropriate green.


It’s December. In Minnesota.

I have to confess that this lack of snowfall is my fault.

After the last brief brush with winter weather, I started up the snowblower to make sure everything was functioning properly. It worked like a charm.


Since I’m prepared to remove snow, we will not see even a hint of snowflakes for months, possibly years.

So…you’re welcome (or I’m sorry, depending on your occupation and/or your feelings about snow).
