With the Fishing Derby and snowmobile race over, it sure looks like Spring outside. Mud Lake has ice and will for some time, but the snow cover is thin. It is nothing like last year. The roof is mostly green. The red squirrels piles of pine cones are not snow covered. I think he ate a few, but the pile looks mostly untouched. Was talking at church with a guy as to whether to not change the snow blower oil next fall as it is nearly new as it sits. The wife waned me that lots of winter can be left. Must be true.
