For the last two days, we've had unseasonably warm temperatures...today it hit 62 degrees! The snow is melting fast. Puddles, puddles everywhere. I think we lost about six inches of snow pack overnight. Yesterday, I saw two chipmunks. We rediscovered one of our rock walls...it's been missing since late-January. And sap buckets can be seen hanging from maple trees all over town! Maple syrup season is upon us!
And with all of these signs of spring, came a sense of urgency. I did a mental inventory of everything on my plate between now and mid-June and immediately made a mile-long to-do list. Sigh. Goodbye to the quietness of winter. I'll miss you.
