Signs of Spring

This week the state road crew came out with plows and dozers and prepared Yankovich Road for breakup. The photo above shows my newly scraped and bermed mailbox.

After an especially cold and gloomy March, we finally have a sunny, warm (30s F) couple of days in a row, and things are quickening. The roads are puddled, trees are shedding snow load, packed trails are soft underfoot. So far the quintessential sign of spring, at least for me, has not started--water dripping from the eaves of my house, but it could happen any minute now, and I am so ready.
