Days of slop

Ah, March in Minnesota. Excruciating, tantalizing, demoralizing--and dangerous! I nearly fell twice today on patches of ice, and this has been a daily occurance. I can't wait until I get brittle hips.

I decided to quit burning wood today after wading through ankle deep slop to load the stove. That's enough.

Heard the first geese overhead today. Not flocks, but just a few stragglers looking around for open water.
