Spring arrives

The forecast for the next week is spring-like temperatures. Daylight savings time has begun. The ice in the Iroquois River was breaking up on Sunday and as the snow slowly melts, the water level is rising.
 The weather on Saturday was warm enough to make a snowman, though the snow was a bit too compacted to roll nice balls of snow.
 The melting snow made puddles that little kids found fascinating. A couple of buckets can keep small children occupied for an hour or two. Then they come inside wet, dirty, and cold.
Lots of robins are back. I have not see the sandhill cranes flying overhead yet, but I expect them soon.

In other news, the Hoosier State seems to be in its final days, with service only through March.
