Well, here I sit, reflecting on the gloomy weather upon us. Today, we are thanking St. Patrick for the lovely snowstorm deposited on his day. We also enjoyed the St. Valentine's nor'easter a few weeks ago. I think I've about had enough of the dreary winter weather and was looking forward to spring peeking around the corner. After all, we had just experienced a few days of beautiful, thawing weather and were anticipating more of the same. Instead, Mother Nature is thumbing her nose at our naivete at thinking March is a spring month.
Yes, Virginia, we have several weeks, if not months of cool weather with which to contend before our dreams of balmy days, green grass and colorful flowers are realized.
With that in mind, I share with you some of my favorite photos of last summer:

So much for dreaming - here's reality today!
