Weather Report

It snowed Saturday, though nothing stayed on the ground. The grass is mostly green. The trees are budding and flowering. Bird sounds are changing, which means new birds are arriving from the south, either summer residents or birds passing through on their way to Canada. I saw the Patrick Gannaway, the little blue and white towboat that moves gravel from St. Paul to Minneapolis this morning, pushing its two full barges up the Mississippi. I haven't seen it since winter set in.
