Rode the same route as yesterday but our friend, Iras, joined us.
It was windy yesterday, but the winds were even stronger today. At one point, we heard a loud cracking sound and a large branch fell from a tree set back a hundred feet or so from the side of the road.
Signs of spring - Yesterday, the pond next to our property was snow white in color but today it looks brownish, the snow nearly gone. Now that large patches of bare earth are appearing everywhere, the melting seems to have accelerated considerably.
