This weekend is the end of March and I am happy to see the diminishing snow leave my roof. There is a small patch left that with the rain today I expect it to be all gone. Now, I will start thinking about spring and watch to see when the ice goes out on Brandy Pond. As has been mentioned in the newspapers, it was quite early last year mid March as I recall but having lived here for many years, it has also had years when it went out much later. Brandy Pond has a large area of open water right now so I’m excited.
