No More Ice

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!

  1. Ya see, Ratty, I wasn't going to comment today, Ratty. But, Ratty, you made me do it, Ratty. I'm a peaceful goose, but, you see, Ratty, I can only take so much, Ratty. You see, IT WASN'T MY FAULT!, Ratty.

  2. I can't wait to see our lake without its ice.
    But I must be patient.
    I look forward to your Florida dragon story!

  3. I woke up looked out the window this morning and saw snow, Hermon. I was not a happy camper - I had planned going back to a 1930s trash pile I found yesterday to collect the treasures there, Hermon.

    So you want to annoy people?, Herman. It's better to use a name other than their own, Herman. Kids especially take exception when you do that, Hermon. Actually you can use any name but I like Hermon, Ralph.

    Wow, where are you located? I went ice fishing today in central New Enbland and there was still 15 inches of ice. The good news there was 28 inches two weeks ago.

    It is nice to know that it is officially Spring somewhere.

  7. haha, it is funny what Sharbytes said, the squirrel stole the ice, maybe he got so thirsty and warm after going nuts and finished all the ice :)

  8. Mother Goose - First I got threatened by a deer, next I got into a fight with a Leprechaun, then I got into a war with squirrels, now come the geese.

    The Retired One - I think the ice will melt very soon. I'm hoping the Florida dragon is coming soon, I'm working on it right now.

    WiseAcre - I'm partial to the name Ralph, George. Mick is a pro wrestler I saw on TV, Ralph. I just thought I'd share that, Ralph.

    Sharkbytes - You don't know how true that really is. The whole thing has given me a touch of writer's block. I'm glad what I write is mostly on the ridiculous side. Traumatized by a squirrel.

    WildRamblings - I'm in southeastern Michigan. The weather has been nice and warm here for a few weeks now.

    Rainfield - Well, Rainfield. What I usually do to welcome spring, Rainfield, is to tease the geese, Rainfield. And then I steal pet dragons from The Retired One, Rainfield.

  9. Betchai - I think it was an evil plot by the squirrel army. They want to steal the ice from all over the world. But it's okay because they'll sell it all back to us for peanuts.
