It feels like Spring today as the snow from our storm last weekend has begun to melt. Fortunately, our ground is not frozen so the water is being absorbed as it melts rather than flooding. Nature is at its finest this week with lots of robins suddenly making an appearance in search of the worms under the snow. I spotted a fawn this morning on the way to work that seemed completely at ease wandering across the road. There are tons of deer here in Comox so they are not really afraid of humans. Fortunately, they seem to be a bit wiser than most deer about vehicles and rarely get hit here, or perhaps humans just expect deer on the road and are more careful. A large flock of swans few over my car in the parking lot at work and made several rather large deposits - hubby had to go wash the car when I got home. They almost got one of my co-workers who had to run to the door of the office to avoid being bombed.
So never fear, for those of you with tons of snow and cold temperatures, Spring is really right around the corner. Two sleeps until March!
