It’s one of my favorite days on Pine Lake. For me it officially marks the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Today the ice went off the lake. Yesterday afternoon it was about half gone but not all gone.
Last evening I walked down to the lake for one last look before it got dark to see if the ice was all gone. Nope, not yet.
This afternoon when I got home from flying the ice was gone. Yeah!! Even if it snows after today it won’t matter because there is no ice on the lake and just watching the waves and listening to the birds makes it seem like spring. Today we are supposed to have unseasonable highs of 70 degrees. I love that. When I drive home from work each day as I crest the hill before I turn into our driveway I love to watch the trees turn from brown to a lime green as the leaves start to develope on the branches and eventually open up. Today is a good day no matter whatever else happens. Spring is here in Central Minnesota.
