Spring Thaw

Filling up the washtub with a hoseSpring has come --- if you forgot to Spring Ahead last night, now's the time to change your clocks!

Meanwhile, I'm revelling in the beautiful weather.  We're only about 80% through our water-line-burying project, but it's so warm that our frozen lines thawed out.  I was able to fill up the washtub and do laundry without hoisting five gallon buckets of water out of the tank!  Now that's spring!
