Late winter is a desolate time...
Even when we're two days into spring by the calendar. There certainly have been spring-like days with temperatures in the 60's and even a few days in the 70's, but today is winter-like. Right now, the temperature is 47 degrees which isn't so cold, but the dampness in the air makes you uncomfortable.
Although the weather hasn't been as severe as last year, every winter gives the land a beating and it shows.
However, the budding of the trees gives you hope of better things to come.
Another sign of spring:
The sign indicates that the pond has been stocked by the state, and is closed to fishing while the fish acclimate themselves to their new surroundings. Saturday, the fishing will reopen and the fishermen will come.
