Snow melts and mud replaces it. The ground is frozen a few inches below the surface so there is no place for the water to go.
Nasty, boot sucking slime. Just another cycle we have to get through every March.
I love my Sloggers. So easy to clean, just hose the mud off. They are one bright red spot in an otherwise trying time.
Wish they made Sloggers for dogs.
Now I know how Mom felt when three kids and a big dog sloshed into the kitchen without removing our boots or even wiping them on the mat. I can still hear her complain, “Out, out, out. Take off those boots. I could grow potatoes on this kitchen floor.” This must be payback, Mom.
