Snow to sleet to rain to sleet to snow to ice. It wasn't all snow!! I think we broke 'Ol Man Winter's back. Now we can begin to plan Spring. I need to do some repairs to the house, apartment and barn after this long hard winter. Build some fencing to keep the dogs in the yard. Start hatching some quail, pheasant and chickens. Finish cutting up next years firewood. Plant my garden, mmmm tomatoes.
As the snow recedes and the trees come back, everything seems new and fresh. Colors come to life with Spring. The first grass mowing of the year is the best, that smell of fresh cut grass. I know, I know, it's still February - but it's the end of February! The puppy will be introduced to grass and dirt and sticks and rocks very shortly.
Spring also means, racing!!! The Thompson Speedway ICEBREAKER. Practices start in late March and racing begins in April!! What a way to spend a Spring or Summer evening. Beer, fried food, the National Anthem, checkered flags and the smell of burning rubber.
