I like to think we're headed towards spring.

Having lived in Minnesota now for about 20 years, I have come to think of this place as home. My blood has thickened, so when it comes to the heat of summer, I'd rather not have that much heat. When it comes to the cold of winters, I'd rather not have that much cold. Cold is inevitable in Minnesota. Last winter was a bad winter. It was more like the winters we had when we first moved here. Since then, with global warming picking up, the winters have been milder and milder, but still a bit too cold for me. Now, with not even the first snow flake having fallen, I'm thinking spring. These honker are headed south, but the next time I see them, they'll be headed north. The migration is already in progress. It's ingrained in their beings. I honestly think, we're headed towards spring.

Mallory, I remember your winter tales and it seemed longer and colder than anyone should have to endure. Hoping this winter is more gentle.

I don't even want to think about winter yet!

Oh! TAG!!! You're it!

Spring is defnately on it's way! We have it now - so you must be next.

This year I decree that you just skip winter & anything remotely chilly.

Thanks for the post, it really helped me! I'm not looking forward to winter. Remembering that spring is on the way is a lovely thought!
