Don't give up. Spring will be here soon.
Yes, it's February and there's still a lot of very frozen snow on the ground here, but it is slowly melting. We are in the melting, freezing, very icy stage of winter. Our driveway is glare ice. Retired Mountain Man has spread sand all around, especially where we get in and out of the car. One positive is if you decide to take off on a hike on your snowshoes, you will be on top of the snow. There is no powder.
Despite the icy conditions, we are preparing for our annual Mardi Gras celebration which will be this coming Sunday. The parade will be in our driveway and we will sand the entire parade route if necessary.
I bet they don't have to chain-up any parade floats in Mobile or New Orleans.

This a great video of a band playing on the street in New Orleans. Well, the video is not so great, but the music is awesome. The musicians are VERY good!
Plus there's a dancer.
Beat back those February blues! Never, never, never, never give up. There will be flowers soon.
