As the weather begins to warm, we are starting to move into what locals call, “Breakup.” Breakup begins when the snow, and ice start to melt. It is ugly because, as the snow begins to disappear, all of the stuff that has accumulated throughout the winter, is starting to show itself once again.
I did the cartoon decades ago, when we didn’t have a dog, now of course since we do, I won’t be able to blame the neighbors.Beside the dog poop, branches, twigs, leaves, and just dirt (source unknown) are all starting to show themselves, and not only is the snow dirty, where it has disappeared, it has been replaced by puddles and mud. To stay optimistic, I have to concentrate on the arrival of warmer temperatures and the returning birds.
