January Thaw Is Here
We knew it was coming. It arrived on Wednesday. Yesterday had a high of 66. This morning’s low was just 48. Tomorrow and Sunday will be in the 70’s. What happened to Winter? The rain arrived during the night, and over a half inch has already fallen, and it’s still raining. My walk around the back of Otter Pond revealed a dreary landscape, but the leaves of Autumn continue to cling to the Beech and Oak trees. That’s normal around these parts. The cattails and grasses along the pond edge add to the rust colors of winter.
