Despite the snow and cold, I saw signs that nature has not given up on spring. There are crocus ready to bloom, although they do look like they've croaked with their sad blooms hanging their heads low to the ground. There are tulips (they could be hyacinths, it's difficult to tell this early) sprouting. Those leaves are about two inches above the ground.
Even with the snow, things are still growing. Mother Nature can keep throwing snow at us, but spring is here.
I'm thankful for the small, green signs of spring.
