Where in the Yard? (Updated w/Answer)

Did you survive the snow? I hope so - and if you didn’t get any snow over the last few days, there are crowds of us who are jealous of you right now. How many days until the O’s report to Sarasota? Then we can at least “think warm” and remember what sunlight looks like... But in the meantime, buckets of snow can’t stop your
