hover over Farmington. 101.7" this winter, so far.

most i saw on the ground was around 4 to 4.5 feet, i think.

normally this time of year, the snow starts to melt, or we have rain, and the driveway becomes a pond. then it freezes, and makes a huge mess to drive on. especially with my little car.

this year, the melt water has been mostly soaking into the ground, so the pond is quite small this year.

I think the holes were for the chain, in case the concrete was needed to keep "anything" from floating to the surface. Should they need to be used that way.
Wubba lubba dub dub!

Maybe the trees suck up a lot of water?

Until I upgrade, I can't run that app.

You got near as much as the Aroostock county average. How much of the time was the ground bare? Down this way it's most of winter with more time above freezing than below. Weeks ago after a warm break I was out in the chill and snowflakes start coming down. I heard a goose honking above and I swear it sounded puzzled, like wtf? in goose honk.

You know when you see geese fly in a V and one side is longer than the other? You know why that is?

ground didn't start showing at the edges of the snow, until around 3 weeks ago. still, only the snow-blown areas are showing ground. at present, i would estimate around a foot or so of snow in the middle of the lawn (where the snow-blower doesn't throw the snow).

there are quite a few birds around that normally aren't used to snow. i imagine they are quite puzzled, as you say.

I don't know much about geese, so i am unsure of why they would have a lopsided V (or was it the pretense of a joke, and i just killed it?)

in the house my father and i gutted out and are renovating, the lady-bugs seem to have an almost endless crop right now, so spring must be coming at some point. I keep vacuuming them up by the hundreds, then tape the vacuum bag shut, but they must be breeding faster then i can dispatch them. must be the coming of the lady-bug Apocalypse. :D

Don't kill lady bugs, they eat aphids!

No technical PMs.
The last thing you did is where you should start looking.

These only look a lot like ladybugs, I know the pest from when it went through this latitude 20 years ago.

Remember, all insects need water.
