Spring is coming!

It has been a long winter, to say the least. Yes, the days are getting longer and the sun is getting brighter, but we just had a big snowstorm with 9 inches of snow. It was all of 9 degrees Farenheit (-13 degrees Celsius) the day after the storm. Brrrrr.

But spring is coming! How do I know that? Our little chipmunk, Maxwell, has made a brief appearance. He even dug a little tunnel in the snow to come out from his winter sleep. Yay!

He was treated to “room service,” e.g. Mr. Ken put some peanut treats and some dried tart cherries down his little chipmunk hole.

Our Maxwell is a little camera shy, so we weren’t able to get a picture. Here’s a picture of a prior chipmunk, Stealth Baby, emerging from her sleep. Maxwell looked pretty much the same. 🙂

How do you know spring is coming in your neck of the woods?
