The Winter That Will Never End

If March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, awe must have an entire pride of lions this winter. Enough is enough, please. I remember that snow in March was not a surprise when I was growing up here, but this is a little over and above the norm.

I am sitting in my living room this morning watching a lone Elk struggling up the mountain in deep snow in a quest for food. I wonder what has happened to the robin that my wife and I spotted in Osburn several weeks ago. Here is the depressing forecast from the Weather Channel for our fair little town. Will this winter ever end? Baseball season is almost here.
