Good morning on this sunny mild Friday! Well, for us this is mild and it’s supposed to stay sunny with a high temp of 34F (1C). A taste of spring! Even though it will cool off again next week. But it won’t get back down to that bitter cold we have had the last few days and should stay fairly nice until spring actually comes to our region of the north country. When will spring come? Last year the snow was on the ground until the end of April. But that’s late. Normal is when the snow is gone by April 7. Early would be the end of March. Muffin forecast an early spring. That could mean just another 4 or 5 weeks of winter! Now that’s exciting. However, I’m not going to get too excited just yet. Things can change drastically up here and we could still have snow for 2 months.
Enough of snow, let’s have some more summer pictures down by the river…
Here we have a white pelican coming in for a landing to join his friends. These are large birds with a wingspan up to 9 feet (about 2.75 meters). They like to congregate below the dam as there is good fishing at that location.
This group is taking time out from fishing to sun themselves on the rocks and preen their feathers. There is also a few ducks on the water coming to join them.
And a bonus pic from my friend Ross in Italy with flowers blooming so brightly over there.
Thank you for joining us again today and more will be coming later on, including another exciting chapter of 20/20 Investigations, Inc., and part 3 in Insulators in Winter! Happy Friday and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
