Default Finally! Signs of Spring!

Mrs. Derby and I did some driving today. It's finally starting to feel like Spring around here, despite the snow cover from yesterday's storm.
  • Drove by the East Alton General Store. It's open!
  • The Merrymeeting Marsh/River at the Alton Circle is surprisingly open. Very wide areas of open water.
  • Back Bay in Wolfeboro is opening up quickly. Several fishing on the bridge and along wall to Mount dock.
  • On the Spaulding Turnpike from Portsmouth, many more out-of-state plates heading north than we've seen in a while (or at least those without ski racks!)
  • Driving in the rain, my car was actually cleaner when we got home than when we left!

Dare I hope for my favorite Spring indicator this weekend? Peepers!

Others?
