I woke at 5 AM this morning quite anxious to see if we had ice-out on my lake, Lake Waukewan, here in New Hampshire. We’ve had such warm weather in the last few days, and our nighttime temperature has also stayed fairly warm.
I ran to the window (or should I say, walked quickly), and noted that we are so close! Just a few icy areas near the shorelines. I feel certain that by the end of today we will have official ice out!
It’s rather a lovely time of year. It’s warm and yesterday I opened all the windows and let the air flow in. As I sat here I listened to the Loons calling to each other.
Could it be any more wonderful? Warm air, the silence of the day, and the Loons singing to me, their Spring song!
