When the Snow Melts
Spring is an exciting time filled with surprises. Surprises like, “OH, that’s where that went!” when snowbanks melt to reveal items lost since first snowfall. Hopefully we won’t have too many of those this year.
One year, a melted snowbank revealed a mangled kevlar canoe courtesy of a blade on a snowplow. That was a not so welcome surprise. Usually it isn’t that drastic, some garbage here, a tool there but nothing very shocking.
There is always a bunch of work to do once the snow melts. Last night I had a dream I was trying to rake and my arms were so sore I couldn’t even pull it towards me. I haven’t even started raking yet but I obviously have thought about it.
I remember one year we had to shovel out our RV sites because there was so much snow in them and groups were arriving. We don’t have RV sites anymore but even if we did I don’t think we would have to shovel this year, but you never know, when the snow melts.
