Photo of the Week: Sign of (Early) Spring

Today was March 13.  This is a relevant piece of information that changes this photo from “normal, everyday evening at the house” to a Photo of the Week.  Because look what I picked up today:

Yup, that’s a paint roller.  I started back up painting the exterior of the house.  In mid-March. In Minnesota. The low tonight is 49°F, and the high tomorrow will be in the 70s.  How great is that?  Since the next several days are supposed to stay consistently above 35°F, I’m thinking I may even be able to finish the north side of the house before we get to April.

While, to Minnesotans, 2010-2011 was the winter of Snowmageddon, I think this past winter will be remembered as the winter that never was.  In my neck of the woods, there was never as much as six inches of snow on the ground at one time, all winter (we know this because our favorite cross-country ski trail isn’t groomed until there is six inches to pack, and we went skiing exactly zero times).  I have to admit that I am considerable concerned about the potential drought situation this has caused, I can’t help but enjoy the fact that we have been able to get so much more done because of our non-wintery conditions.  As I mentioned in my last post, we got three windows put in during January.  So here’s to capitalizing on weather anomalies! And not having to wear a coat in March. Unheard of.
