Big news! The ice on the patio went out today.
Now the question remains: When will the ice go out on the Upper Narrows Pond? My friend Dawna, who lives by the pond, thinks it will be out tomorrow—Monday, March 14. She has promised to let me know.
It’s very odd how ice-out on our patio corresponds so closely to ice-out on the Narrows.
One of life’s wonders, and at the little house in the big woods, it gives us something to ponder.
More things to marvel at: Yesterday, I saw the first chipmunk in our backyard. They’ve come out of hibernation. I also heard tree frogs for the first time this year. No peepers yet.
When we have such things to keep track of, is it any wonder that Clif and I are never board even though we hardly travel?
Stay tuned for more spring tidings.
