More big wind overnight as the storm that walloped Steinie and Washington DC just skirted us.
Blew some of the ice clear of snow.
While they dug out or shivered with the power off, I laced up the ice skates again.

Ok, this ice skating thing is getting addicting.
Made the rounds (and around and around) on the smoothest section I could find.
Snow drifts make for nice obstacles that formed a figure 8 track.
Took an occasional break and tried not to pant hard enough to shake the camera.
Refraction, transparencies, reflections, textures, bump mapping, lighting, depth of field...everything can be 3D fodder if you just look at it funny.

Skating is done; way too much snow, so I walk around instead.
Some more pix, some of stix.
And another set from a walk in the park.

Winter's back is broken as temps climb above the freezing mark.
Take a hike around the park on an early March day.

Not really... it hit 57 F / 13.8 C. on the day of the hike.
Didn't really need the coat, it ended up stuffed in the backpack.

Today's high? 67 F ! / 19.4 C ... for the last day of winter, that aint bad!
Naturally, tomorrow being the first day of Spring ...yep, they're forecasting snow.
Aint out of the woods yet, but the end is in sight.

Finished about 80% of the spring yardwork / cleanup so no time for pictures.
If I was one of your lawn care customers you'd have had to bring the full crew.

Things have been slow and uneventful.
Spring continues to advance.
A couple sick family members have kept me close to home the last few weeks.
They are on the mend now, so onward and upward.

Like Finis, I'm looking for work and not finding it, hooray for clueless politicians who enjoy demonizing corporations and businesses and paralyzing them with harebrained regulations and unfunded decrees!

But, I digress...oh look, a duck!

April showers, May flowers, blah blah blah.
They forgot to mention the clogged gutters and bee stings.

i was looking for a job half a year few months back. Just send you cv to everyone and check for job everyday. Keep it under pressure and you will be fine.

btw: making your CV visually interesting and original scores big points, as I find out!

good luck
