February 29 and the crocus are up. This has been the mildest winter I can remember. Lots of precipitation, but in rain form, not snow. Everybody keeps saying "We're going to pay. Some of our biggest storms have been in March!" Maybe it will. Maybe it won't. It's almost like everyone has been holding their breath waiting for that bad winter storm. We've had a little ice, a tad bit of snow, but nothing that has lasted for more than half-way through the day. All I know for sure, the bugs are going to be bad this summer! At least the bats will have plenty to eat!
