    Default First signs of spring?

    I saw and heard my first Sandhill Crane of the year.

    I can't stand those cranes. I like all nature, but one of the least is those cranes. We have tons of them here spring, summer and fall. They are noisy and cause problems and are a protected bird here.

    I heard they were talking about putting Puxatauny Phil, or however you spell it, on trial and asking for the DEATH PENALTY!

    Our ground hog in Wisconsin said 6 more weeks of winter and so far he is spot on ... and to think I wanted to shoot him when he claimed that!

    These loons returned early this winter or they never left, found them while ice fishing late last month; third one in the background:



    They are related to penguins but normally aren't on the ice, they fly further South.

    Spring? Yeah, right. Snow started earlier yesterday and didn't stop until sometime this morning. One station noted 8" and another 10".
    I woke to my radio alarm clock and hearing cancelations longer than my leg.

    Opened the back door just to shovel the snow off the steps so I could get to the ground. I shoveled off the 4' X 10" black place mat we have in front of the steps and headed for my ATV. I had the snow blade on and just needed gased. It was right where I parked it, but the heavy snow had the limbs on our Cedar tree near touching the ground, my ATV helping support probably what would have been broken limbs. Long pole and some whacking relieved many of the branches I could reach.

    Plowed snow for better part of 2 hours without a break. I had to make the first few passes on our drive with the blade up! Yeah, that deep.

    I saw a Wanted Poster for the Ground Hog. They want him nailed for fraud.
    Also saw a cartoon about out Spring. Man at the window yells to his wife; "Spring is here. Robins are here." Yep, Robins and only their feet sticking up out of the snow.
