Ginnie BakerIt’s the first week of March and spring is only 16 days away but it’s hard to believe right now with all the snow we’ve had in the last week or so. The weather continues to be up and down. After a snowstorm on Sunday, we had rising temperatures and freezing rain on Tuesday. Thursday, the temperature will plunge again to single digits, but then next week it goes into the low 50s.

As an animal lover, I’ve been watching all the critters out here, and they are definitely saying spring is on the way.

The ones who hibernate are now waking up with big appetites! They are scouring the ground around all the bird feeders for anything they can find.

I couldn’t believe it when I saw the ‘possum a couple of days ago. He looks pretty thin and his fur isn’t in great shape, but he seems to have fared pretty well through this strange winter.
