Spring on hold

Lake Willoughby thawing out

Lake Willoughby thawing out

We saw pale skin extending from short sleeves.  We heard birds upon leaving our homes in the morning.  We saw streams of melted snow flowing through winter’s sediment on road shoulders.  We felt warm almost heavy breezes and felt sun on our faces.  And now…spring is on hold.  It has been back to the cold and snow for us these past couple days.  Folks are scraping windshields and zipping up their down coats.  A co-worker of mine woke to 10 inches of fresh snow yesterday.  We have been more fortunate – cold temps and snow but little accumulation.  Up at higher elevations the snow hadn’t quite melted prior to this cold snap and now it seems it will be a while longer.

Patiently waiting while we peruse the trail register on Long Pond Trail to Bald Mt.
