What you're saying: What is the first thing you plan to do when the snow finally melts?

Next week's question: How much will you pay for gas before you cut back on driving?

Last week we asked readers, 'What is the first thing you plan to do when the snow finally melts?'

Here's what you had to say:

"I'm going to pull the parsnips that I planted a year ago in my urban vegetable garden. They'll be nice and sweet now. I'll roast them tossed with garlic and rosemary that I still have from last fall's harvest. - Lonnie Chu, Syracuse

"I leave my grill right outside my back door all year long, so if we get any thaws in January or February, I can fire it up. This winter, there haven't been too many opportunities. Definitely grilling outdoors is one of the things I most look forward to during the winter months. That, and taking the kids for walks around the neighborhood. We might go months without seeing some of our neighbors during the winter, so it's nice to catch up with folks as we march around Eastwood. - David Tyler, Syracuse

"Shovel all of the rottweiler 'landmines' in my back yard.- Steve Brock, Herkimer

"As for me, I'll be getting my hands dirty, making room for a vegetable garden! And maybe taking some pictures of all the pretty colors that have been hiding under the snow. - Amanda Gormely, Syracuse

And three of you (Ann Ferro, Mike De Lucia and Adelle Starr), said you'll put the boots away for the season and slip into some sandals or other summer footwear.

"What you're saying" is a new feature in The Eagle intended to spark dialoge and share perspectives among community members.

Each week we will ask you for your opinion on a topic, and a selection of responses will be included in the following week's edition of the paper. Some topics will be fun, others will be more controversial.

To receive the weekly "What you're saying" question in your inbox, e-mail editor@theeaglecny.com. The question will also be posted at facebook.com/theeaglecny.com . Submit your feedback via e-mail or on our Facebook wall . Please limit responses to two or three sentences and include your name. The Eagle's letters policy applies.
