Can Spring be far behind?

By Bill Bartusek

Summer-like weather was what we left in town last Thursday night as we headed north. It continued that way until we got north of Aitkin. There, the snow on the ground was still deep and winter still had a good hold. At home the robins were singing and setting up their home ranges for the summer. At the cabin we were going to go snowmobiling with a bunch of friends. Only, in Minnesota!

Ice fishing there was good and the lake still had some snow on it. The panfish were cooperative and I was able to put together a fish fry for our friends. It finally rained while we were there and that finished the trails off for any more riding. As we headed south Sunday, we left the snow behind.

At home, there was no snow. Until Monday, what a change. A full tilt snow storm and everything is white again. I'm sure the snow won't last long because it is mid-March. It sure makes it hard to think about spring and turkey hunting.

Ice fishing in the area will surely continue for awhile. The snow will make things a mess but anglers will cope with it. Like the robins, I guess. We'll just have to wait and see what happens with the weather. Winter could drag on for a while or warm weather will return and erase the snow.

Spring isn't far off but I wouldn't bet on it as I look out at the blowing snow as I finish writing this Monday morning.
