Just a quick note about the weather here in Wisconsin. Most people are thrilled with the recent warm spell. Initially I had to agree that it was wonderful to get a taste of Spring in the middle of February.
That was until Monte and I went for our daily walk on Sunday. I quickly remembered that the Spring melt creates extra work for those of us that walk our dogs. It only takes a quick trot around the block to turn our yellow lab into something resembling a spotted leopard.
It doesn't take as long to clean up when we (Monte) can roll in the snow before entering the house. All in all, I will gladly accept the small dose of extra work that accompanies our respite from below zero temperatures - last week the high was 8F, Thursday is forecasted to be 50F.
