Of course, it was just a matter of time. Just wait long enough after New Years, and before you know it it'll be Groundhog Day. And no big surprise — Punxsutawney Phil today gave us the usual 'bad news' about 6 more weeks of Winter. Well, at least it's not 2 months!
So... as my debut article in the new "community blog" called “The Groton Line ”, I decided to try out juxtaposing two pictures that show something like "the Pammett Groton Woods" before and after the January thaw. Imagine... just two weeks ago the "glenn" in our woods looked like the image on the left, below, and now the snow's all gone as you see on the right.
Now... if only that meant that Winter were really over and done with!!
Rest asured I've lived in New England long enough to not be holding my breath about that. But if you are so inclined, join with me in "Think Spring" — as I do every year about this time !!
