Spring Comes Slowly in Vermont, And Elsewhere

There's been a lot of news this past week about snowstorms, sleet, ice storms and hail affecting large parts of the United States, even though its April.

As is par for the course, we did not escape the wintry weather here in Vermont.  On the plus side, as usual, it wasn't as bad here as in other places, which had lots of damage and power failures.

Still, snow, sleet, and freezing rain yesterday did not exactly encourage me as I pine for spring green and budding and flowering.

Now, it's Saturday morning, it stopped snowing and sleeting and the snow and ice on the ground seems to be melting at a pretty good pace.

Here's a quick video I made of the sights and sounds around my house as winter barged in on April, again. At least one of our dogs seemed to be having a good time:
