Today I will say that spring is here. We had a nice gentle rain on Weds and it greened things up in about two days.
After the heavy snow at the end of March it started to warm up and melt the snow pack. Things looked good until Sat just after dark on the 14 of April. We had a good old fashioned spring snowstorm. We ended up with 10-12 inches of snow with plenty of wind and drifting. The Robins had already migrated North and a late winter snow cuts off most of their food supply. By about the 20th of April the snow was once again pretty much gone, the shaded areas still had snow.
Ice out on our lake came on May 2 and 3. The end of the lake we are on is a large shallow bay which was ice free on the 2nd. By the end of the 3rd the bigger deeper part of the lake had opened up. Our fishing opener in Wisconsin was on May 5 and there were a number of area lakes that were still ice bound. They're all ice free now on the 11th of May. I saw my first Baltimore Oriole this morning. It looks like everything has started to leaf out.
Here are some of the pictures of the last month.
That's it for now. Hope you enjoyed.
I have a trip planned for early June with my friend Art to Sturgis, SD for the Cushman Motor Scooter National Rally. It should be a great time.
