While it all looks good, don't be deceived. We're still in a water deficit. The ground is still frozen so rather than having the ground absorb the water from melting snow, the water becomes runoff into the streams and rivers.
The upside is this is good for the Mississippi River which was dangerously low.
Spring is just around the corner, and its the time of year that "I'm goin to Carolina in my mind." Azaleas, Dogwoods, Redbuds, Daffodils, Tulips. ..etc... everything blooms.
Sigh. And so it goes. ..
