Crystalnews…..Summer’s onApr 10th, 2012 | Category: Jay's Corner
Greetings from the sunny North…
The weather is just too strange. Two weeks ago we had 14 inches of wet snow, since then it’s been in the 60’s and 70’s. The temps say Summer but nothing had greened up as yet. The normal sequence of Spring is out of hack. Every day there are flocks of geese, blue herons, and cranes, headed North. The Trillium aren’t ever out of the ground as yet. (the only green in the woods is the garlic mustard) Based on the mild Winter and the trends so far, we should have progressed to summer mode by early April (a 5 month Summer works in my world). I was down on the Crystal beach this AM and it was so strange, it was a “beach day” but there were no people, boats, docks, or boat hoists.
The storm recovery has progressed to the road crews trying to remove all of the trees and branches from the road side. They have several weeks of work ahead of them. The power and cable is all back up and running. The whole storm experience was eye opening for a lot of people.
