Spring has sprung a leak

Our first serious rain after the winter and everything feels and sounds strange. Because the ground is still frozen there is standing water everywhere and the snow is shrinking. After a day of rain the weather forecast calls for a switch to snow tonight. If it gets cold enough this area is going to turn into a skating rink.

What a relief that I sent my son to get a load of firewood yesterday before the rain began. This is a soaker.

One thing I will have to do today is go out with a screwdriver and raise the chicken gate. Right now it's standing in about three inches of water. Joy...hah!

I thought we had started to see spring...but then the freezing temperatures and snow came back. I guess mother nature was just playing. :-(
