Spring? That was yesterday.

Yesterday started out with sunshine and ended with snow. We thought it was spring.

We have a large pond with goldfish in it. We keep water in it year round. In the winter we turn off the pump and put an aerator in it for the winter. The goldfish just sink to the bottom of the 3 foot end and hybernate all winter.

The water in Sand Creek and the irrigation ditches in this area is shut off during the winter. The wild ducks come back to Sand Creek every spring before the water is released. A pair of ducks come and swim in our pond every year. They were there yesterday. A sure sign of spring. And the Daffodills are comming up.

Today I woke up to a couple of inches of wet snow. The snow/rain is going to be around for a few days.

It's been a long, hard, cold winter. I would love to see the sunshine for more than a few hours. Another day, I guess.
