Signs of spring are starting to appear. On Sunday while in the woods, we saw a garter snake and some bear droppings. Maybe all that thunder and wind with the two-plus inches of rain this past weekend woke up the slumbering critters. On Saturday evening, many folks were without electricity. Thank you to the dedicated crew that endured pouring rain to restore our power.

Special wishes to everyone for an Easter full of love and family.
