More Signs of Spring
Even though it snowed an inch or two last night and the temperature went back to below freezing, there are signs of spring. It’s light almost 24 hours now, with twilight from about 1 am to 3 am.
View this morning--fresh snow. Good thing we didn't put the sleds away!
Water on top of the ice on the river
Melted hillside with some running water
Possible, but challenging to find enough snow to run a snowmachine
Punchy snow which leads to post-holing as you walk
A few pussy willows!
With the pools and ponds of open water, came the geese. This past week the first pots of spring goose soup were made and consumed. A sure sign of spring!
