Image via WikipediaSo I was driving home from work today when a big pile of snow flew out from behind a parked car and landed right in front of me in the middle of the road. Once I pulled past the car, I saw that a guy was standing in his yard with a snow shovel, and he was shoveling the snow off of his lawn and throwing it into the street. Now I want spring to arrive as badly as anyone else, but shoveling one's lawn is going a bit far if you ask me. He at least could have rolled out the snowblower to do the job a bit more quickly. It's also not uncommon up here to see guys (it's almost always the guys) chopping ice off of their driveways with garden shovels once it starts to get warm out (I am admittedly guilty of this myself, though I prefer to use an axe). It's almost as if we don't realize that a few more warm days will do the job for us with a lot less effort. I honestly think sometimes that people up here would pay for a snow-melting service to come through with a giant blow-dryer to annihilate the remaining piles of muddy snow in their yards.
So yes, spring fever seems to be pathological in NH, and it hits every year right around mid-March. I'm not even going to mention what it does to my dog.
