This photo of frost was taken on the frozen surface of a stream in Lancaster County, Nebraska. It makes me cold just looking at it.
Technically, we’ve got almost a month of winter left. It sure doesn’t feel like it. The snow has all melted and the forecast is calling for temperatures in the high 40’s and 50’s for the next week or so. Sandhill cranes and geese appear to think spring is here too – they’re just pouring into the Platte River valley right now. Pretty soon we’ll hear red-winged blackbirds singing (if you can call it that) on their territories and it’ll be official.
