On April 9 of last year – 2015 – this chipmunk emerged – probably from our garden shed – optimistic about spring. The stand for the weather vane on which the chipmunk is sitting is a meter (3 feet and some) off the ground and the snow is the cumulative result of two months of blizzards and storms.
This post is dedicated to all those in the eastern USA who were snowed under and snowed in this weekend. I am thankful that the storm went offshore before it reached PEI.
Boundless optimism from other WordPress folks can be found here.
