The solar heating is really pouring through my office's window today! We're having typical pre-Birkie week weather...warm and melty. Happily, this year we have SO MUCH SNOW that it's not sending us into panic mode! We look forward to next week...when, annually, the world comes to Cable, and we're treated to such sights as athletic-looking men wandering through Rondeau's grocery store with English/Other dictionaries.
This snow-face was carved into the huge snow piles the Town of Cable mounds in a vacant lot behind my house (which, I believe, is vacant specifically for that reason!) by local kids who consider this to be a play-area. (just as I did when I was a kid, eh?) I just happened to see it when I was out walking Ms. Dog and Sr. Cat the other day...just had to take a photo of it. I've been calling it the Indomitable Snowman.
With the Birkie coming up next weekend...that means that Spring is only just around the corner...although that corner is still a couple of blocks away, eh? Well, I think the general consensus is that we've had a really beautiful winter. Beaucoup snow...and our cold snaps were neither too long or too cold.
We look forward to Dr. Eric Swanson presenting a program on trapping at our upcoming Community Conversation on March 3rd. And...we really, really, REALLY will get going with a film series...and maybe a documentary series, sometime real soon. So...stay in touch!
