In Search of Spring . . .
Friday was the first day with temperatures above 50 degrees since last October. There is still a ton of snow out there and under all the snow the lakes still have at least 3 feet of ice … it still looks like winter. However, the sun and the warmer temps finally made it feel like a Spring day. (It should have happened back in March, but there is no use in complaining about it … Spring shows up when it is ready, not when we are.)
The weather was so nice, the school emptied out at the end of the day very quickly. There is too much snow and sloppy, slush puddles to do much outside, but I think most of us just wanted to experience the warmth and the sun. I hopped in my car and drove around looking for signs of Spring … and I found a couple.
There was some small spots of open water on the river that the geese, ducks and swans must have found immediately … because the spot that was totally devoid of visible life just a few days ago was splashing with it.
