19 Days until Spring!

I'm ready! Are you ready for Spring?

19 days until it is officially Spring! :)

It sure doesn't look nor feel like it here in the Southwestern corner of Ohio. We're still getting the typical dreary cloudy days of winter but the sun is making an effort here and there to shine! Temps this morning were in the teens. Looking ahead for the next couple of days, we'll peak at 60 degrees on Friday and then cool off in the low 40s by next Weds.

It's getting there though!Spring melt water

I love going hiking & camping during the spring, especially during the melt as the streams & rivers are gushing with melt water. There's still a little ice along the banks and you can see the little green buds of fresh growth peaking out from the ground and the surrounding trees. It's still a little nippy in the morning, but it's a refreshing kind of nippy. You know you have a little longer before the bugs show up...a little calm before the storm per se. :)

Actually, we've got a family trip planned in May to do a little camping down by Mammoth Caves in Kentucky. We've invited our parents and siblings! It should be a good time!

What do you like to do during the spring? Have anything fun planned?
