So the boss brought me a coffee yesterday...he does that sometimes when he has a breakfast meeting at Caribou or Starbucks. A nice treat for me... I have to say, I was quite amazed at the little green plug they put in the hole...for all I know they have been using them for years, but I had never seen one...meant to keep the heat in...how cool is that...I know...simple pleasures for simple minds...

So I'm cruisin' down the highway this morning headed to the office and I see this orange thing slowly making its way across the overpass. Dang! Is it? Could it be?? It is! A salt truck...the first one I have seen since the snow we got on Sunday. He was going very very slowly, so I have a feeling he was on some real icy pavement...color me surprised!

I think the robins were a little early this year, I think the snow caught them by surprise...not to worry though, plenty of berries for them in the trees outside my windows.
I am not sure if this guy was looking at me...or the cats who spent the afternoon watching the birds flitting from rooftop to tree to rooftop back to tree...
Sabine was very intent on the actions of this grackle...

The snow has really been disappearing in the last few days leaving behind the detritus of the winter along the highway...blown tires, hunks of plastic that were once parts of automobiles, traffic cones, and plain old trash. It has also melted away in front of the office, uncovering the early daffs that are reaching for the sun...telling me to expect one more measureable snowfall before the winter rides away...

Its been snowy and blowy and cold here in the "mitten". The girls have been cozying up together to stay warm...between those times they are racing around the condo like a couple of little dervishes...
That is Serafina on the left and Sabine on the right.
