Spring

Some signs that winter may actually be loosening it's hold on the northland:
 - turkey vultures have returned
 - pussy willows
 - chipmunks are out and about
 - daffodils are starting to emerge, along with other perennial plants
 - onions are greening (we forgot to dig a few last fall)
 - the snow has receded in our yard to just a pile at the back of the house
 - I saw two varieties of butterflies during today's run (Mourning Cloak and possibly a Tortoiseshell species)
