Winter weather started late but then came with a vengeance, as if to compensate.
The winds, ample snow and bitter cold made for two months of misery.
The melt got off to a slow start
With the sun's heat settling the snow.
Then the rains made a mess
Which required vigilance and pumping.
Slowly the lawn emerged
As the earth absorbed the run-off.
More grass appeared daily,
As if a blanket was rolled back.
Then a temporary setback!
Where's the mower?
