You might be on to something, hard to be certain, weather is still "you're gonna get what ya get when ya get it !" the way I see it, though the weather app on the smart phone is very handy, along with all the rest we have today.
I have not seen red winged blackbirds, they are a month late, I usually start seeing them in mid February, not sure what else might be in the same category, some Robins stay, but you will see flocks coming back. Geese are late too, be nice if they just skipped this place.
Real nice out there today, going to be a bit sloppy, I was almost dried out, another day, then the darned snow, minor set back.
Good day to spend on next years firewood, might just finish up those logs today, then time to tow more in.
