I know it is only March, but after the long winter and the recent "nice" weather.... I had hopes! I was foolishly thinking that winter was gone and spring was just around the corner. I woke up this morning, looking out the window, I felt betrayed. Stabbed in the back by Mother Nature. Up till yesterday our new deck had finally become bare.... free of any trace of wintry evidence. Now it has a thin layer of snow..... Beware the Ides Of March!
