The last of the ice in the lake March 16/10
After a pretty nice winter, that means no huge snowfalls, spring is arriving about 1 month ahead of schedule. There could still be some more snow on the way, but it will not last as the ground is already thawing. The ice is out of most lakes and the first snowdrops are up. I wonder what this weather will mean for the rest of the year? The lack of a heavy snow cover could spell trouble for people on wells this summer.
The fishermen are out in full force already, last year on April 1st the official opening of the fishing season, there was still ice in the lake. The ducks are swimming around, maybe the ducklings will arrive early this year.
I am sorry that I haven't been able to update my blog more frequently, but I have just been swamped with work. Then this week I came across this really cute idea to say "I'm sorry" in a 'geeky' kind of way. Unfortunately, I don't remember where I saw it or snagged it.
