The Groundhog Might Have Been Right

Today at our home in western New York state, the temperature peaked at 44 F (that’s about 7 C). At this time last year we were under a foot of snow. Today, nothing but sun!

And, because I’m strange and it seemed like a good idea, I put out some bones for show.

February is close to October, right?

Gonna try to enjoy it while we can. While it seems very spring-like today, next weekend won’t be so lovely.

What's that? SNOW? Not allowed!

Well, we’ll enjoy the day while we can, and buckle down for colder days ahead.
