Drained the gas from the snow blower. Took off the snow tires. Turned off the furnace. Put the shovels away. Someone at work bet me that winter was most sincerely and truly over and there would be no more snow. I took him up, as if I lose, we win.

A few things of note. The ice cleared from the lake on April 4th. With it icing up on Nov 25th, we had an amazing 4+ months of ice cover! It was a long winter, as the rabbits and field mice ate things they normally wouldn't: the bark off bushes - even the very spiky blackberry canes. Beyond that, with the heavy snow over this winter, most things appear to have survived quite well.

Brave, to turn off the furnace. We don't turn ours off until mid-May. (We don't have any other heat source, though -- J is babbling about putting solar panels on the roof, but we'll see....)

There's still better than 60% ice cover on the lake here.

Yes, but down here, the ice is long gone by mid-March. In other news, it's an ill snowfall that blows nobody good. I had bet that there would be at least one more accumulating snowfall for this season. Last Thursday, I was treated to a gloat-fest as my esteemed colleague pointed out 70s and 80s predicted for the weekend. The temperatures were true, but so was my accumulating snow today...
