March Madness, Gunflint Style

I find this time of year unsettling.  Mother Nature doesn’t seem to know what to do and neither do I.  One day I’m trying to run outside, then the next day I am back on skis.  It will be 40 degrees one day and then below zero the next.  They are still grooming both the snowmobile trail and the cross country ski trails but ice fishing for Lake Trout has ended for another winter.  It makes me sad to see the snow leave us but happy to know the open water is just around the corner.  Spring begins on March 20th and while some people are ready to start gardening I still want to shovel.  Change is difficult for me, maybe there is a benefit to living somewhere without the 4 seasons?  Nah, if it was always one season we would begin to take it for granted and that’s one thing you never want to do.  So be sure to live in the moment and Savor the Season whatever it is.
