I returned to Carpenter Lake to check on the icy covering, and couldn't find it at all. The ice is gone! Did somebody steal it? Of course not. Spring is here, and the ice is melted from the lake.
This was a wonderful sight because I had never seen this lake without it being covered with ice. This is a major sign that winter is over. It isn't always warm yet, but it's warmer than it was.
I'm still expecting at least one more snowstorm, and some more cold. But it won't last very long. It's only gong to get warmer as time goes on. Winter is losing it's grip on us now. As a matter of fact, it snowed just a little bit today, and that poor snow looked hot and lonely.
Maybe the dragons of the forest will even begin to wake up from their long deep sleep. Since it's getting so warm, I'm expecting a visit from a dragon from Florida any day now. Don't worry, this will all make sense in a few days.
I'm telling you, Mick. This is a beautiful sight, Mick. This water is a welcome sight after all of that snow and ice, Mick. The winter was cold and it was long, Mick.
Okay, that was just a bad inside joke. I did it just to annoy someone. Whenever you're talking to somebody, say their name after every sentence just to irritate them. When they catch on and tell you to stop, act like you don't know what they're talking about. That's your funny tip of the day from a rat, just because it's on my mind more than the lake right now.
To wrap this post up, I just wanted to show you this now thawed lake. The photos were more important than the words, but the most important thing is that Spring Is Here!
