My Poor Pitiful Car

Dirt and mud clings to it while this morning's view of the valley was frosty and cool...but there was a hint of something new in the sky.
Just for a moment,
through my dirty windshield,
I spied a stranger
and life became better for it.
Sunshine!
It did not stay long
but it warmed the air
and held the promise of spring.
The last of the snow
is leaving reluctantly.

Beautiful scenes Gail. We had some warmer sunshine today and I felt a little skip in my step for the first time in many weeks. Enjoy your weekend.

We have been sunny here all week. Gorgeous Vancouver weather. Great for the Olympic visitors.

Our snow is gone too. I'm very glad to see the last of it. And now onwards toward spring. Let the first green shoots pop out of the ground!

We can no longer even remember what color our vehicle is it is so dirty and salt encrusted. The car I drive is sitting in the garage, has been for a month all nice and clean :) It probably won't turn over when we turn the key!

Nothing like a bit of sunshine to warm us and make the day better. It's like God smiling on you as the last of the snow melts. Keep warm and safe.

I look forward to green grass and sunshine. My PT Cruiser is a lot dirtier than yours! Your Yoda is such a sweet little pup. My husband's barn looks a lot worse than your garage...you can hardly walk in it. Has to be a man thing.

That cloud cover looked other worldly. Cool! Hope sunshine comes your way soon. It's actually cool and rainy here today in the usually sunny and warm Arizona! But that's ok! Gives me time to catch up on blog reading!
