... now it's just a waiting game for the ice to be gone. This pic was taken this morning by the Sailor Creek Flowage boat landing. The whole flowage is still frozen over with the exception by the dam and below and by the creek flowing into it.
Wherever there's open water ... you can see some type of duck or goose ~
Even the loons have made the journey north already ... although May is only a few days off and there should be no ice. What a rude surprise the waterfowl got this year.
Hang in there you honkers and quackers and feather flappers ~ if the sun keeps shining the shorelines will soon be free of snow and the ice flows will be history. Although, I really don't see all the thick ice being gone by next weekend ~ which is the opener of the fishing season. If you're thinking about traveling north to fish from a boat in my neck of the woods.... I'd double think that!
Old Man Winter is taking his jolly old time this year in leaving.
Even Sam had to get in on some of the sunshine and snow one last time today ...
yep ... that's him at the end of the driveway on the snowmobile ~
"But Mom, it's above 50 degrees, the sun is shining, there's still snow on the ground and it's the end of April!" "T-shirt weather and I'm snowmobiling!"
Time to park that old Ski Doo!! but seriously, there is a LOT of snow yet in the woods. The only place where it's open is patches in the yard and alongside the roads and in fields.
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
