Thank you for the wonderful story. I, too, get a little perplexed at all the technology we have now.

Yesterday, we had our big notice that Spring had arrived. For weeks we had been watching the ice in the lake and it didn't seem to be going away. Yesterday there was a brisk wind and we could see water along the shore, maybe 10 feet out but still, the rest of the lake had a sheet of ice.

The lake turned over during the night and this morning the lake was like glass (no wind) and there was no ice to be seen. Every year when the lake turns over, it happens differently. Last year we had a very cold winter with way too much snow. Suddenly it turned warm; it was almost like we had no Spring. The ice in the lake groaned (yes, it can have a voice). But this year there was no voice. It happened overnight.

Now to quit putting off starting my seeds.
