Nemo Trumps Punxsutawney Phil

Punxsutawney Phil, the most famous of prognosticating rodent prognosticators, did not see his shadow on Feb. 2nd. He also failed to predict the record breaking winter storm Nemo. Spring might be delayed this year...sorry Phil. Here are a few fun photos of the storm followed by some photos I took last year to cheer up those who are suffering from cabin fever and can't wait for spring to arrive.

I'm tired of dreary desolate winters with sleet and ice storms that break tree limbs and knock out the power. I agree with Otto, it's nice to finally get a real winter storm, it's beautiful and fun.

No matter how much snow we get, and how beautiful it is, by the middle of Feburary I'm ready for spring. If you are suffering from cabin fever, here are some photos that I took last year to remind you that spring is not too far off.
