Positive/Negative

I'm positive that this time of year the skies are usually gray and full of moisture..
Take this sky for instance...I took this shot yesterday afternoon but it doesn't matter when or what day it was taken because it positively looks the same every single day.
I'm positive that it's been raining cats and dogs on and off all week. Can you see the drips on this tree?
I'm also positive the driveway is really our creek...and our stones are now washed into the road...can you see this positively muddy mess we have going on here?
I'm positive these swatches of red streaks are not the lovely warning of a "sailor's delight"
So where's the negative in all this?
Well, it's NOT cold....so the rain is NOT snow.  It's been in the 50's and 60's this week..NOT bad in my book for January.
It's NOT the beginning of January, it's the end,  so Spring is NOT far off.
This bud is NOT blooming yet..but I'm NOT worried...it will NOT disappoint us come March!
Sometimes the positives of life are easily overcome by the negative...Am I NOT right? 
P.S....I'm positive that I'm pulling names tomorrow night for my giveaway to end the Grow Your Blog Party...I know the winners will NOT be disappointed!

I couldn't be more positive in wanting spring to be here either.

I like it! Seeing the positives in the negatives is good. Have a positively great day and stay on the positive side. I want to see some more rain clouds full of good rain here. Nice pics.

February will fly by and then Spring will be here before we know it!! Experiencing much the same here in Michigan...

Ah, I hear the lyrics for a blues song, something about rain and fog and cloudy days. We can sing along, as we too are experiencing cabin fever in the Northwest. Even our driveway has become a river.

When our sky begins to look like that here in Alabama, we start looking for a storm shelter :)

But spring is not that far away.
