The groundhog says spring will be early and I swear that I can hear the entire northeast whispering "Hooray!" after what has been a tough winter so far. We had a snow day here but the promised storm has not been as bad as predicted, at least here in suburban Buffalo. Lucky for me that a sweet he-man showed up to clear the snow off my drive and sidewalks. He knows that I am under the weather and graciously took on a few hours of work to make sure the snow was completely removed.
