Late February on Peaks Island

Today was a time of quiet. Another couple of snow falls during the week but nothing to complain about. It is our quietest time of the year. The kids were out of school this past week so trips to the south and its warmth were had by as many families as could afford it. Many others also spend some time right now in Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head and all points south. It is the time of the year that Peaks Island has its lowest population--plenty of parking spaces available downfront right now!

Today, the sun was out, the wind was down and the temps were in the mid 20's; an absolutely beautiful day. Yesterday's snow was already melting away. Supposed to be another storm coming in mid week. Who cares; we're headed for March which is my very own first month of Spring. Who says I can't tell my own mind when Spring begins. Why depend on a calendar and others to tell us when the winter is winding down? Take charge of your own Spring is my motto.

Here's some pictures of our animals watching their own tv out the window as the snow was falling yesterday plus a few as the sun began to set this afternoon. Hang in there; it's almost Spring--at least we can watch the Red Sox run around the outfield every Saturday morning for a couple of hours. We are getting closer folks. Survive the snow or sun if you're in the South.
