|ICE STILL ON CHEQUAMEGON BAY|
|ALDER CATKINS IN BLOOM|
Yesterday we were pleased to have a surprise visit from our daughter-in-law Leslie and five-year-old granddaughter Allison Eleanor all the way from Texas. They will be here all week, brightening our lives.
Yesterday we saw the native alders, Alnus rugosa, locally called "tag alder," in full flower, shedding pollen to the wind, along Fish Hatchery Road. Meanwhile, the lower Chequamegon Bay is still frozen over, and is on target to be the latest ice-out on record. And at the intersection of Hwy. J and Valley Road someone has posted a sign in the snow that reads, "Save Our Climate."
To which I will simply reply, "Come on, Global Warming!"
