Now thoughts turn to spring and Spring Break movies. Where the Boys Are (1960) makes festive these times of dark. Watched it the other night. What struck me this time was how limited in scope Spring Break was in the 1960 period, versus the masses of now. The escape from the snow is a bit over done as the cold after the snow is often worse for those of the North. Of course, folk of all ages escape the cold North now. While the students take a month older folk take the rest of Fall to Spring—Snowbirds, they are.
Birds still seem around but not in favor of our offerings. Working on the problem we are. If one can come, why not the crowd. Stuff must be alright if the lone birds come and try some.

We could have Bing Crosby singing it here. Looked like three inches with certainly some melting as it fell, so could have been more. Real wet snow, too. Lake has become a full winter scene with ice fishing then a full snow cover. Some peaks over 32 degrees coming, but the snow is likely here to stay. The good point is that the temperatures might be putting some of that water into the ground for the pines and tamaracks.
