Springtime is coming at some point, right?

Tuesday, March 11, 2014 - Updated: 9:06 AM

Winter, it appears, is poised to make a last-gasp effort to remind us how mean-spirited and hateful it can be. Or, for those who enjoy the inconvenience of impassable roads, inconceivable cold, and miserable conditions, we appear to be in line for another life-choking deluge of frozen wonderment and beauty.

Either way, we all need to be mindful that the weatherman is calling for a bad storm to rip across New York state beginning Wednes-day morning and ending none too soon. Or, Thursday. Depending on your perspective.

Storms at this time of year can be most tricky. With temperatures during the daytime heading above freezing and dipping below it after sunset, snowstorms are often bookended by rain, sleet, ice, or all three. This is what we are told is headed our way Wednesday. Coupled with wind; can't ignore the wind. No storm can be thoroughly enjoyed until it is blown back across the driveway two or three times.

Thankfully, it's March, which means our little slice of heaven here in the Mohawk Valley should not have to withstand too many more of these tiring, draining conditions.

Winter can be beautiful -- in photos from other people's countries. But when it's up to your knees, or treacherously icy, or just plain stupid cold outside, it can be a tiresome thing.

We hope that until the glorious day that this winter mayhem is finally behind us, you'll proceed with caution -- especially in the next couple of days -- and, perhaps as importantly, check in on your elderly neighbors Wednesday and Thursday. Make sure everything's OK.

Soon, but not soon enough, we'll be planting bulbs and raking last year's matted leaves out of the shrubbery beds. This week, however, it appears the snow shovels will be getting another workout. Oh, happy day.
