Last weekend, snowmobile races on the lake.

This weekend the Department of Natural Resources says, “Get your ices houses of the lake NOW!”

A week of temperatures above freezing has turned the ice from white to sea green.

Ice out is coming.

A flight of Canadian geese fly overhead honking encouragement to each other as they make their long journey north to their summer breeding grounds.

Seed in the bird feeders seems to drain to empty overnight.

Fields of white turn to dull brown as snow gives way to the remains of corn stalks standing like grave stones waiting to be plowed under.

A chipmunk is busy looking for acorns that squirrels buried last fall.

The warm south wind ushers in sunshine, almost forgotten during winter’s short days.

Can Spring be that far away?

    Here in New Zealand we’re spiralling into autumn – heralded by a colossal cyclone that devastated Vanuatu and has skimmed past our coasts – so hopefully you guys will be getting some great sunshine and heat soon!

    Spring does feel far way up here. We’re supposed to get more snow onSaturday, and the temps have been hovering around 15 all week. Even the deer are getting restless!

      Yes, your part of the world has certainly taken a hit this year. Let’s hope Old Man Winter has had enough of us.
