You could’ve fooled me!
It felt more like late March, early April!
I had to listen to Tami grumble for the fifty thousandth time about how she hasn’t been able to wear her snowshoes except one time . . . and aren’t we living in Maine after all . . . and what the heck is going on with the weather lately?
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
I didn’t need my scarf, or my ear muffs, or even my boots today! And there’s only 3 inches of snow right now. But it is extra super crunchy.
“How crunchy is it,” you ask?
It’s so crunchy, wildlife in the next county heard us coming. Tami couldn’t blame it on Cookie this time either, because Cookie was walking on top the snow!
There were tons of ice fisherman out on the lake,
just not in this photo Tami took. They were mostly down by the State Park. There was also a group of people who looked like they were walking the length of the lake. But super, cautious Tami wouldn’t let us put one hoof, paw or foot on the ice. Not even the edges. The minute she sees open water waaaay over by the beaver hut, she gets nervous.
But she did let us walk the red-dotted trail to get there. Cookie really, really wanted to get in the water, but the current can be kind of strong in this one spot, and the water’s awfully cold right now. No matter how Cookie pouted, Tami wouldn’t give in.
There were signs the beavers had been out and about. We could hear the blue jays, chickadees and the ravens calling back and forth. But alas, no eagles could be seen.
It’s still a touch early, but with all the warm weather, Tami was kind of hoping they’d be out and about.
Perhaps next week!
