John here~No doubt we all enjoyed the 54 degrees yesterday, right? And it seems like we lost nearly half of the snow. Our driveway's clear, most of the roof melted off and the snow banks along the street are smaller. But as a household with two large dogs, while the snow in the backyard started disappearing, it has now exposed several month's worth of, how shall I say it? Doggie Doo.
Don't get me wrong, we take very good care of our lawn and during the spring, summer and fall I perform "Poop Patrol" on a very regular basis. But in the winter it's just so easy to "let things lie" and get covered by the constant snowfalls, ya know? I mean, who wants to go out there in sub-zero temps for the cleanup process? Besides, when it's that cold you have to sometimes use a pickaxe to pry those frozen mounds out of the snow! Unfortunately, while the "stuff" is out-of-sight-out-of-mind during the winter, it all comes back to haunt you in the early spring. And remember, these two just keep making more. Every day. Constantly.
So even though I received a reprieve during the long winter months, it's time to prepare for a messy spring cleanup. Now, I'd like to hear from others who have dogs, too. Do you perform yard clean-up in the winter, or just let it go until spring? C'mon, be honest! Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
