Lawn. What lawn?

My husband takes great pains and pride in manicuring our lawn, often it's as well-groomed as a putting green. It may be a while before the lawn mower and fertilizer replace the snow blower and shovel, though, as this weekend photo of our back yard would indicate. According to North Idaho climatologist Cliff Harris, Saturday marked the 124th consecutive day that snow has been on the ground here, breaking the record of 123 days. Since snow started falling in early winter, 13.5 feet have fallen in Coeur d'Alene, nearly 100 inches more than normal for this period. In Rathdrum, more than 15 feet have fallen, and at stations between Spirit Lake and Priest Lake, the total is as high as 18 feet. Sigh.
