The day started out quite well, but then the clouds came. They say it´ll be sunny all day today, so I hope someone tells that to the clouds :-)
More and more migrating birds has come to rest here and by the lake. The forest is now filled with birdsongs and over the fields the meadow larks now starts to claim territory. There song is one of the safest spring signs we have here. They almost never comes to early to be surprised by nasty cold weather.
Not much ice left now :-)
It´s amazing how fast the snow melts now. A couple of days ago and we had around two to three feet of snow, now we can talk about an inch or two :-) The roads are also almost free from ice now. It still hangs on in shadowy places, but the ice layer is very thin and fragile now. I know we still can get surprised by snow and cold weather for yet another month. In the good old days winter could continue way in to April.
It´s a bit worse in the forest though. Now comes the time when I start to complain over how durty my dogs get when walking on those muddy roads :-) :-)
I borrowed my neighbours little compressor so I could fill the empty tire with air this morning. It´s not a strong one, so I had to get a chair to sit on while the little machine did its job. It went rather well for quite some time, but then it looked as if the tire didn´t get any more air. I understood why when I suddenly pushed the air valve a bit into the tire. That´s not supposed to happen :-) and all the air in the tire went out in seconds :-) :-) Now atleast I know it´s not a nail in the tire :-) :-) :-)
Still no sun, but now I can see more and more grass sticking up through the snow. If this continues we should have no snow when reaching April :-)
Tomorrow friends will come and change tire for me, so I can take this one in for repaires. So until then I´ll drink some tea and watch Ski Biathlon on tv. I might do some more things but what that can be I have no idea until then :-)
Have a great day now, I will!
