I think I’m out of hibernation!
After yet another two-day marathon shovel-fest at the end of last week, the temperature has now warmed up to normal!
After 40 straight days of below average temperatures, many more than 20 degrees below normal, average temperatures fill the forecast. It feels like t-shirt weather! Or at least I can finally put the winter parka away. Even my chickens have noticed and yesterday produced the first egg of spring (that wasn’t frozen or broken or stolen by something). I can even see the lowest level of ice in my driveway.
Happy days are here again. Soon I will be out in the forest, watching the first spring growth of the new season. Even though I usually decry spring as nothing more than mud season with favorable media coverage, this year I will sound the trumpet myself.
