Spring Has Arrived

Spring Has Arrived

April 13, 2008 by

Spring is here! Birds are returning and the snow is melting. As i type this there is a flock of geese honking as they pass over the lodge. Eagles are screaming overhead during the day and song birds own the sunrise, all definite signs of spring.
Still lots of ice on the lakes and rivers but warm temps will take care of that. There is 4-5 ft of ice to melt on the big lake so we could still see ice patches till June.

Now it is just a matter of waiting for the frost to come out of the ground so things can dry up. It is rubber boot season now with every step a wet gooey mess. There was a report of a bear seen south of here last week so they will be slowly moving around waking up from their long sleep.

I have an incredible urge to get out in a boat this year, can't wait till the ice is gone. We'll see what kind of crop we have this year for mosquitoes and ticks, hopefully the cold weather knocked them down a bit, yea right.

Hang em high!
