10 Mar Spring may have sprung
While some people rely on rodents and their shadows to declare Spring’s arrival, we here at the Glassmaker Family look to the river for Mother Nature’s harbinger of Spring. Today it spoke to us! After many months of winter slumber, the river finally broke through and is dead even with our property. I am sure by tomorrow morning another neighbor down river will notice sheer ice and snow giving way to the mighty Kenai, but for today, the flowing waters of the Kenai ended here. Looking back at previous years, this one is definitely a bit early and as if to verify that winter is not really over, we got several new inches of fresh snow today, all as the river simultaneously ate through the ice and pushed its flowing waters further downstream.
Sorry for the not so great picture, the weather was wet and the lighting was horrible but alas, you can still see the Kenai awaking to spring!
